A young couple shared first love one summer, before leaving for different colleges. They swore enduring love, but their romance ended abruptly with a single email. They didn't see each other again. After almost twenty years and the burdens of adult responsibilities, they both retained the memory, never forgetting that magical time in their lives. Their lives had taken different paths, living far away from childhood homes. Then, through a chance encounter at a resort, they arrive at the same place and time after half a lifetime apart. They've both changed, but still feel an attraction as they had in their youth. They want to know each other again, but it could be impossible now with different circumstances and responsibilities. The situation is complex and dynamic, changing frequently, with emotional upheavals. It could just be an impossible dream.

The Cliff-Dwellers was the first American realist novel to use the rapidly developing city of Chicago as its setting. Henry Blake Fuller’s depiction of social climbing and human depravity among the “cliff-dwelling” residents and workers in the new Chicago skyscrapers shocked readers of the time, and influenced many American writers that followed. With its frenetic pace and many interrelated stories, it remains a compelling document of Chicago’s social history, as well as a searing indictment of modern American life at the close of the nineteenth century. The extensive appendices to this edition include Fuller’s literary criticism and his correspondence about the novel, reviews, and visual and historical materials on turn-of-the-century Chicago and literary realism.

The Little Red Cliff portrays life in the 1950s and 1960s in Tanah Merah Kechil (Little Red Cliff) in a corner of Bedok District along the eastern coast of Singapore. Author Yeo Hong Eng chronicles the story of his family, the Yeo family, as they struggled to make a living during the lean years after the Japanese Occupation. He describes in detail how his parents developed the land for farming and exploited other available resources, such as sand mining during rainy seasons, until they were forced to leave the land in 1963. He also explains how they processed coconuts into cooking oil and bamboo into food, materials for building trellises, farming accessories, and basic toys. Whether they were working in animal husbandry or in vegetable cultivation, his grandmother and parents used the age-old methods passed down from their parents and grandparents to work with the land and their animals. What's more, they made sure to take time from their work to celebrate important festivals, entertainment, and the joys and sorrows of everyday life. They attended wayangs (street plays), flew kites, and made their own playthings-shuttles, spinners, sling shots, and musical instruments-with whatever raw materials they had on hand. In The Little Red Cliff, Yeo Hong Eng shares a description of family life in Singapore in the mid-twentieth century-its lows and highs, its struggles and joys.

With power and emotion, Edward Schwartz gives the readers in The White Cliff the impassioned story of a broken friendship of two men-a writer, Martin Bell, and a scientist, Harold Flint. They are both trapped by their own contradictions: ambition and fear, desire and obligation, self-confirmation and responsibility. Woven in a tapestry of inner voices of his heroes, Schwartz takes us from a movie-studio to a scientific laboratory; from a hospital's OR to the International symposium; from the church to the KGB office in Russia. Among personages, whose lives are being entwined into fates of two main protagonists, there are the following: Dr. Ann Bell, Martin's wife, who tries to reshape her life beyond the family triangular; Bill Acheson, Martin's friend and a movie director, who tries to perforate Martin's screenplay-confession into a piece of art; Margaret Dixon, Ann's sister and a talented journalist who begins to realize that articles of faith that have shaped her life, are far too simple; Dr. Joe Smith, a gifted scientist who has given up the battle with morality, and does not stop even in treason to satisfy his desires. All these personages, and many others, create a colorful pattern in the kaleidoscope of human life, where and the world of science, and the world of literature are only two colorful stones among myriads others.

Nineteenth-century attorney Sarah Woolson is still trying to get her life together. Against her family's wishes, she opens her own San Francisco law firm, only to find that clients---paying clients, that is---are wary of allowing a woman to manage their legal affairs. Just when her patience, as well as her money, are about to run out, Sarah and her friend and former colleague, Robert Campbell, attend a séance at San Francisco's Cliff House. Making their way through the worst storm of the season, they arrive at their destination to find themselves in for much more than, in Robert's words, "silly parlor tricks." After a dramatic display of spirit apparitions, flying trumpets, and phantom music, Madame Olga Karpova---a renowned Russian clairvoyant---and her guests make a grisly discovery: One of the twelve people seated at the table has been brutally strangled. Later, when two more séance participants are found slain, Sarah is pressed into defending the accused murderer. Working on her client's case, she quickly finds herself at the center of a complicated murder plot involving ghosts, gypsies, and City Hall, all the while facing off with Robert in a volatile legal battle and investigating her brother Frederick's shady political dealings. Hardly proper behavior for a nineteenth-century woman, but Sarah wouldn't have it any other way. Feisty and determined, Sarah continues to flout the notions of "proper" femininity in this series that is a turn-of-the-century answer to Legally Blonde.

There are three good reasons why dashing Civil War hero and New York lawyer William Teague cannot tell artist Mae Kendrick he's in love with her. One, she told him he was dull. Two, she is the niece of an important client. Three, she just hired him to find the man she doesn't remember marrying. As Will manages this peculiar case, the search for Mae's husband unveils a shocking discovery about her childhood, one that shifts the investigation to the place of her birth--Ireland. But on the voyage overseas, circumstances become increasingly bizarre. Mae suffers ghost-like visions and further memory loss, and Will is seduced by a beautiful stranger who just might be trying to kill him. When Mae suddenly vanishes like her husband, Will is forced to enter a thin place, an ancient monastic ruin leading to Ireland's Celtic otherworld, in what becomes a race against time to find her. But are Will's war-honed instincts any match for the alluring forces of Irish legend? Can he distinguish friend from foe? Can he protect Mae from the apparitions of her past? And how far beyond the breaking point can his secret love be tested?

An advertisement heralded, "Oak Cliff gets its name from the massive oaks that crown the soft green cliffs." Originally called Hord's Ridge for its founder William Henry Hord, the area was purchased by two enterprising developers, Thomas L. Marsalis and John S. Armstrong, and renamed Oak Cliff. Also touted as the "Cambridge of the South," the community flourished until the depression of 1893. The partnership split, and in 1903, the beleaguered Oak Cliff voted itself into the city of Dallas. The area has seen much change over the years, but the physical separation the Trinity River creates from Dallas provides Oak Cliff a permanent and unique identity from the "big city" and helps it maintain remnants of its original small-town atmosphere.

But she'd come to the village of Cragg's Head, Ireland, to uncover the truth about her friend's death. And that meant questioning Niall, the woman's dark, mysterious husband. The man everyone believed had pushed his wife over the cliff. Niall took Kate to his home, a deserted castle high on the rugged coastline. As the ocean crashed wildly below, Kate longed for her light-filled California home. But Niall's story—and the secret he was determined to keep—fascinated her. The question now was, could she trust him? The cynic within—and the townsfolk—told her no. But her heart told her yes….
