A #1 New York Times Bestseller, Louise Penny's The Long Way Home is an intriguing Chief Inspector Gamache Novel. Happily retired in the village of Three Pines, Armand Gamache, former Chief Inspector of Homicide with the Sûreté du Québec, has found a peace he'd only imagined possible. On warm summer mornings he sits on a bench holding a small book, The Balm in Gilead, in his large hands. "There is a balm in Gilead," his neighbor Clara Morrow reads from the dust jacket, "to make the wounded whole." While Gamache doesn't talk about his wounds and his balm, Clara tells him about hers. Peter, her artist husband, has failed to come home. Failed to show up as promised on the first anniversary of their separation. She wants Gamache's help to find him. Having finally found sanctuary, Gamache feels a near revulsion at the thought of leaving Three Pines. "There's power enough in Heaven," he finishes the quote as he contemplates the quiet village, "to cure a sin-sick soul." And then he gets up. And joins her. Together with his former second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, and Myrna Landers, they journey deeper and deeper into Québec. And deeper and deeper into the soul of Peter Morrow. A man so desperate to recapture his fame as an artist, he would sell that soul. And may have. The journey takes them further and further from Three Pines, to the very mouth of the great St. Lawrence river. To an area so desolate, so damned, the first mariners called it the land God gave to Cain. And there they discover the terrible damage done by a sin-sick soul.

How lucky can one girl get? Just ask Jacqueline Croix. She has it all. The right fiance, money, looks, and connections. But everything comes at a cost. Sometimes that cost is looking the other way when the imperfections of your world start to show themselves. When something happens that she just can't look away from, she ends up drunk in a Chanel dress at a pity party on the beach in SC. There on the beach, she finally sees the cost of having everything is too high. Luckily, Jacqueline has one thing most girls like her do not, somewhere to run when she leaves it all behind. That somewhere happens to be to the open arms of the New York Rangers' right wing, Mike France. He has always been there through thick and thin, waiting for his chance to make her his. But how do you go from being best friends to lovers, when you know all the dirty details?"
On the surface, Cameron Douglas had everything- descended from Hollywood royalty, he was born into a life of wealth, privilege, and comfort, growing up in mansions in California and Mallorca and a luxurious apartment in New York City. But by the age of thirty, he had become a drug addict, a thief, and-after a DEA drug bust-a convicted drug dealer sentenced to five years in prison, with another five years added to his sentence while he was incarcerated. Through supreme willpower, a belief in himself, and a steely desire to alter his life's path, Douglas began to reverse his savage transformation, to understand and deal with the psychological turmoil that tormented him for years, and to prepare for what would be a profoundly challenging but successful reentry into society at large. Long Way Home is a powerful story of one man's descent into the depths of addiction and self-destruction-and his successful renewal of family ties that had become almost irreparably frayed.
A comprehensive account of the tuberculosis epidemic among the Inuit in the mid-part of the century. The Inuit were victims not only of the epidemic but also of the Canadian government's shockingly slow response and lack of concern for their culture. Grygier's focus is on patients' experiences and the programs set up to deal with the epidemic, rather than on a purely medical discussion of the disease and treatment.
