'I wish the spring was here now,' said Mary. 'I want to see all the things that grow in England." When orphaned Mary Lennox comes to live at her uncle's great house, she finds it full of secrets. The mansion has nearly one hundred rooms, and her uncle keeps himself locked up. And at night, she hears the sound of crying echoing down one of the long corridors. The gardens surrounding the large property are Mary's only escape. One day, Mary discovers a secret garden, surrounded by walls and locked with a missing key. With the help of two unexpected companions, Mary discovers a way in-and becomes determined to bring the garden back to life.

Love arrives at the most unexpected time . . . 1821: Elias Roch has ghastly luck with women. He met Josephine De Clare once and penned dozens of letters hoping to find her again. 2021: Josie De Clare has questionable taste in boyfriends. The last one nearly ruined her friendship with her best friend. Now, in the wake of her father's death, Josie finds Elias's letters. Suddenly she's falling in love with a guy who lived two hundred years ago. And star-crossed doesn't even begin to cover it . . . "Dearest Josephine is the type of story that becomes your own. The characters' heartaches worked their way into my own chest until I hurt with them, hoped with them, and dared to dream with them. This book is teeming with swoon-worthy prose, adorable humor, and an expert delivery of 'Will they end up together?' I guarantee you'll be burning the midnight candle to a stub to get answers. Step aside Pride and Prejudice, there's a new romance on the English moors." -Nadine Brandes, author of Romanov "Caroline George infuses an epistolary love story with a romance and charm that crosses centuries. Touching and inventive, it bursts with wit, warmth, and a blending of classic and contemporary that goes together like scones and clotted cream. Dearest Josephine is a delight." -Emily Bain Murphy, author of The Disappearances "Dearest Josephine is more than an immersive read. It is a book lover's dream experience. Josie's residence in a gothic English manor and her deeply romantic connection to Elias, who lived years in the past, is as chillingly atmospheric as Rochester calling across the moors. This story is George's treatise on the power of books and character to creep across centuries, to pull us close and invite us to live in a fantasy where we find love-literally-in the kinship of ink and binding. But it also acknowledges the dangers of letting ourselves fall too deeply when sometimes an equally powerful connection is waiting next door. This love letter to books, and the readers who exist in and for them, is a wondrously singular escape." -Rachel McMillan, author of The London Restoration and The Mozart Code - Romantic and evocative read in both contemporary and historical time periods - Stand-alone novel - Book length: 86,000 wordsShow more

Take time out to savor the tender moments with your children. Overflow with gratitude as you reflect on the gift of motherhood. May His joy and peace be yours, embracing the grace and strength He has given you as you endeavor to love your children just as he loves you. Excerpt: The Perfect Hire Whether "Mom" is your only title or one of several, the day you became a mother you took on a full-time job with crazy hours, non-existent pay, and inconsistent benefits. Some days, it's the greatest gift in the world to love and serve our families. On others, we find ourselves wondering, Does this job get any easier? Any better? On those days with more responsibilities than time, more grumbling than gratitude, rest in this: your employer is not that tantrum-throwing toddler or eye-rolling teenager. God chose you specifically for this family; you were the only candidate for the job, and you are perfectly qualified. You work for Him, and He will give you all the support, recognition, and joy you need. "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving" (Colossians 3:23-24, NIV). What part of your "work" as a mother is the most difficult for you? Share your struggles with God. Does it help you to remember you are working for Him at a job He chose just for you?Show more

Your Word illuminates my path, and wherever I go, I flourish. No matter the season, I'm blessed-established firmly in you." (Inspired by Psalm 1:2)Show more
