|Anything Is Possible, Elizabeth Strout
“Anything Is Possible explores the whole range of human emotion through the intimate dramas of people struggling to understand themselves and others.

The janitor at the local school has his faith tested in an encounter with an isolated man he has come to help; a grown daughter longs for mother love even as she comes to accept her mother’s happiness in a foreign country; and the adult Lucy Barton (the heroine of My Name Is Lucy Barton, the author’s celebrated New York Times bestseller) returns to visit her siblings after seventeen years of absence. Reverberating with the deep bonds of family, and the hope that comes with reconciliation, Anything Is Possible again underscores Elizabeth Strout’s place as one of America’s most respected and cherished authors”–Amazon.com.

|Alex and Eliza–A Love Story, Melissa de la Cruz
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Witches of East End and The Descendants comes the love story of young Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler. 1777. Albany, New York. As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters—Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival those of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball. Still, Eliza can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can’t believe his luck—as an orphan, and a bastard one at that—to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history. In the pages of Alex and Eliza, #1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz brings to life the romance of young Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler.

|The Coming of the Lord, Gerald N Lund
To Latter-day Saints there is probably no subject more significant than that of the Savior’s second coming. That day is near at hand. And it will affect everyone.In The Coming of the Lord , Gerald Lund brings into sharp focus the events both thrilling and threatening which are to precede and accompany the second coming. The United States in prophecy, the Adam-Ondi-Ahman Council, the coming of the Ten Tribes, the City and Temple of Zion, the “One Mighty and Strong,” the Millenium itself — all these and many other relevant facets are discussed clearly and forthrightly. Deliberately avoiding speculation, the author ties his commentary to significant scriptural passages and authoritative comment from modern prophets. Particularly important are the conclusions drawn as to where and how the righteous may find their security in the days ahead.While the author does not attempt to minimize the troublesome times predicted by the scriptures, the tone of his book is positive. It indicates how a person may confidently prepare. It seeks to induce anticipation rather than anxiety, a sense of joyous partnership with God in the great events of the last days. As combined information and inspiration on a vital subject, this substantial, instructive book should be high-priority reading for everyone.
