Maeve Binchy's highly successful Quick Read. Molly Sullivan said that the new baby was a little star. She was no trouble at all and she was always smiling - so she became known as Star and no one remembered that her name was Oona. Star Sullivan just wanted everyone to be happy - her father to stop gambling, her mother not to work so hard, her brother to stay out of trouble, her sister to stop worrying about every little thing she ate. Then the Hale family moved in next door, and from the moment Star saw 23-year-old Laddy Hale, everything began to change - until Star was no longer the sweet, thoughtful girl everyone loved and no one worried about...

Superb storytelling from one of the world's best-loved writers. Just round the corner from St Jarlath's Crescent (featured in MINDING FRANKIE) is Chestnut Street. Here, the lives of the residents are revealed in Maeve Binchy's wonderfully compelling tales: Bucket Maguire, the window cleaner, who must do more than he bargained for to protect his son. Nessa Byrne, whose aunt comes to visit from America for six weeks every summer and turns the house - and Nessa's world - upside down. Lilian, the generous girl with a big heart, and the fiancé not everyone approves of. And Melly, whose gossip about the neighbours leads to trouble in the form of the fortune teller, 'Madame Magic'... 'In Chestnut Street [there is] enough kindness, wisdom and insight into human nature, to remind readers why Maeve Binchy was one of the most beloved writers this country has ever produced' Irish Times

From The Lone Ranger to Lonesome Dove, the Texas Rangers have been celebrated in fact and fiction for their daring exploits in bringing justice to the Old West. In Lone Star Justice, best-selling author Robert M. Utley captures the first hundred years of Ranger history, in a narrative packed with adventures worthy of Zane Grey or Larry McMurtry. The Rangers began in the 1820s as loose groups of citizen soldiers, banding together to chase Indians and Mexicans on the raw Texas frontier. Utley shows how, under the leadership of men like Jack Hays and Ben McCulloch, these fiercely independent fighters were transformed into a well-trained, cohesive team. Armed with a revolutionary new weapon, Samuel Colt's repeating revolver, they became a deadly fighting force, whether battling Comanches on the plains or storming the city of Monterey in the Mexican-American War. As the Rangers evolved from part-time warriors to full-time lawmen by 1874, they learned to face new dangers, including homicidal feuds, labor strikes, and vigilantes turned mobs. They battled train robbers, cattle thieves and other outlaws--it was Rangers, for example, who captured John Wesley Hardin, the most feared gunman in the West. Based on exhaustive research in Texas archives, this is the most authoritative history of the Texas Rangers in over half a century. It will stand alongside other classics of Western history by Robert M. Utley--a vivid portrait of the Old West and of the legendary men who kept the law on the lawless frontier.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! The Beatles, Ed Sullivan and the Author Ed first learns I have written a book when I hand him a finished manuscript. Naively, I imagine he'll be flattered, but when he reads it, he blows his stack and stops speaking to me. He's furious. I am revealing more about him, more backstage gossip and more details about the inner workings of the show than he wants made public. Fortunately for me and for Always On Sunday, Ed simmers down eventually and decides my unauthorized biography is "magnificent." He promotes it in his newspaper column, in interviews and in joint television appearances with me. Ed helps turn the book he initially hated into a national bestseller. During my 11 years on the Sullivan show, no one created more excitement than the Beatles. February 7, 1964: Kennedy Airport. Their first trip to the United States. The screaming fans! The haircuts! The sassy answers! Welcome to New York! The entire country focuses on this place and these young men. Including me. I am meeting their plane. A CBS public relations executive for years. Now the network's press representative on "The Ed Sullivan Show." Ed was warned not to sign the Beatles: "You're crazy! No British group has ever made it big in this country." A month before they arrive, they are still unknown in America. Every reporter I contact turns down my invitation to go with me to JFK. Two weeks later, "I Want To Hold Your Hand" rockets to the top of the charts. Beatlemania crosses the Atlantic, and I am besieged by thousands of ticket requests. Reporters plead to join me at JFK. On February 14, I greet the Beatles again, this time in Miami for a second Sullivan show. I do my best to stay out of the way but, thanks to papparazzi determined to cash in on every shot of the Fab Four, I appear in photos published around the world (including the NY Post). In the captions I am called a Beatle, a case of mistaken identity I still laugh about with my wife, best-selling novelist Ruth Harris. When I return to New York, Ed searches for me backstage. One stagehand is impressed. "Ed must really like you," he says. "You've only worked for him for four years, and he already knows your name." Ed And The Celebrities Who Loved Him -- Or Not! Why did Frank Sinatra take out an ad saying, "Ed, you're sick, sick, sick."? You'll find out in Always On Sunday. Why did Mary Tyler Moore sue "The Ed Sullivan Show"? You'll find out in Always On Sunday. Why did CBS cancel Bob Dylan's appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" -- against Ed's wishes? You'll find out in Always On Sunday. Elvis' fans kissed him where? Ed was stunned when Elvis explained. What did Elvis say? You'll find out in Always On Sunday. Always On Sunday was originally published in hardcover by Meredith Press and in mass market paperback by NAL.

Following a humiliating divorce, Kathryn Watson and her two children flee the city. Against the advice of family and friends, they move into a house in a West Virginia holler. While exploring the woods, she discovers a two hundred year old cemetery, setting off a chain of events that lead her to believe she's being stalked by a mentally challenged man. The truth is revealed when she discovers a near-dead horse on her property. IF NOT FOR SULLIVAN is about his harrowing rescue during the worst ice storm in West Virginia history, his unusual attachment to Kathryn and the phenomenal love he spreads throughout the holler. Kathryn finds love in the feed store where a new pastor has set up church. Later, he searches the rough mountain terrain after she goes missing. You'll develop a warm connection to the characters in the holler as you peek into their private world, but most of all, SULLIVAN will find a permanent place in your heart.

Within these parameters, and in 2001 lines, Sullivan creates 100 poems that, he says, themselves function like a waka: 'members of the crew change, the rhythm and the view changes - it is subject to the laws of nature'.

Ed Sullivan, who could not sing, dance, or act, was TV's greatest showman in its early years. For 23 years, from 1948 to 1971, he hosted America's premiere variety show every Sunday night on CBS, on which he introduced an eclectic array of talent that included everything from opera singers to dancing bears to Elvis Presley and the Beatles. This book is an inside view of The Ed Sullivan Show and the unusual story of one of the most unlikely television stars who played host to such diverse talents as Van Cliburn, Rudolf Nureyev, Robert Goulet, Richard Pryor, and The Rolling Stones. With his distinctive nasal voice, Sullivan regularly promised audiences a really big shew and delivered by offering up virtually every form of twentieth-century entertainment. Bernie Ilson, the Sullivan show's P.R. man for eight years, takes us on a trip down memory lane to revisit one of the most popular shows in television history.

“An elegant guide to working with Saturn energy in your life” by the author of The Astrology of Midlife and Aging (FindAnAstrologer.com). Saturn in Transit reveals Saturn’s useful and developmental influence in our lives. Erin Sullivan gives a thorough account of the astrology, mythology, and psychology of Saturn’s role as the source of divine discontent. Saturn assists the modern hero and heroine, during its transit around the zodiac, by destroying the old and outmoded within, and throwing us periodically into chaos, which invariably generates a creative transformation of purpose in our lives. “One of the very best books on Saturn, great insights . . . Sullivan draws extensively on depth psychology and classical mythology to portray Saturn’s developmental influence on our lives.”—The Tim Burness Blog “I highly recommend this book. In fact, it has informed many aspects of my own practice and is a go-to book when preparing clients charts . . . Without a doubt, this is a must-have book in your astrological library.”—Ask Astrology “A very good book on Saturn cycles.”—soulhealing.com

Dave Foster, Chief Engineer for Burton Aircraft, has a problem. Three of Burton's new Aerostar 800 commercial jets have crashed recently shortly after takeoff from Denver. His engineers can't find a design flaw, and the FAA has concluded the crashes resulted from unusual weather conditions, but Dave has doubts since, in all three cases, a wing apparently came off before the plane crashed. His investigation leads to an attempt on his life, resulting in extensive injuries and a lengthy period in a coma. One of his engineers is mysteriously murdered. Dave suspects a material substitution for a limited number of planes has been made to alleviate a schedule problem, but can't find out who made the change and for how many planes. As more planes crash in the same manner, an all-out effort is launched to locate and fix the planes with substitute parts. A web of overambitious and unscrupulous Burton personnel and suppliers complicates his efforts. Even after the defective planes are located and repaired, assigning responsibility for the part substitution and bringing the malefactors to justice challenges Dave and the detective assigned to the case. Lawsuits complicate Dave's efforts to keep the company going with new products.
