A heartwarming and moving novel of family and love from the international bestselling author of the “effortless and deeply satisfying” (Glamour, UK) Love Always. They say love feels like going home…but what if your home is no longer there? Leaving her tiny flat in London—and a whole host of headaches behind—Lizzy Walter is making the familiar journey back home to spend Christmas with her chaotic but big-hearted family. In an ever-changing world, her parents’ country home, Keeper House, is the one constant. But behind the mistletoe and mince pies, family secrets and rivalries lurk. And when David, the Love of Her Life—or so she thought—makes an unexpected reappearance, this one ranks as a Christmas she would definitely rather forget. As winter slowly turns to spring, all the things that Lizzy has taken for granted begin to shift. Keeper House is in jeopardy and might have to be sold for reasons Lizzy doesn’t understand. Her family seems fractured like never before. And, with a new man in her life, she may finally have to kiss her dream of a reunion with David goodbye. By the time the Walters gather at Keeper House for a summer wedding, the stakes have never been higher—for Lizzy, for her family, and for love.

Death is the one experience we all have in common. It is the one reality which we try to avoid but are forced to face. We should prepare for death as faithfully as we would prepare for the birth of a child. These meditations are written to encourage and strengthen the faith of believers as they face death, the gateway to eternal life. God’s Word is a great source of comfort during all the trials of life. In these simple Scriptural meditations, the author has sought to help the believer prepare to meet their Lord. It is a book for terminally ill patients, pastors, care-givers, and all who would follow the advice of Luther, who counseled that we should prepare for death while we are living, that when we are dying, we may embrace eternal life.

Thirty years ago there were nine African Americans in the U.S. House of Representatives. Today there are four times that number. In Going Home, the dean of congressional studies, Richard F. Fenno, explores what representation has meant—and means today—to black voters and to the politicians they have elected to office. Fenno follows the careers of four black representatives—Louis Stokes, Barbara Jordan, Chaka Fattah, and Stephanie Tubbs Jones—from their home districts to the halls of the Capitol. He finds that while these politicians had different visions of how they should represent their districts (in part based on their individual preferences, and in part based on the history of black politics in America), they shared crucial organizational and symbolic connections to their constituents. These connections, which draw on a sense of "linked fates," are ones that only black representatives can provide to black constituents. His detailed portraits and incisive analyses will be important for anyone interested in the workings of Congress or in black politics.

It doesn't matter if you're in the woods every other weekend or every other day. Outdoorsman or angler are broad terms and applies to a large population. However, the title does not encapsulate someone who frequently engages in either. Ultimately, anglers, hunters, hikers, etc., are ordinary people whose lives move from anecdote to anecdote, until life gets serious. An outdoorsman is not immune to failure, complex life decisions, nor are things simpler. Being on the water with a fly rod or in the alpine with a rifle does not provide answers because neither a mountain or a fish can talk. However, when life brings trauma, a fly rod can be the best weapon with which to keep fighting. Going Home is a memoir about fishing, without being just about fishing. It's about a man contemplating direction and his sense of home after he is jerked from his linear journey of a life spent chasing fish.
