DESCRIPTION:

Lucy Tuttle is a workaholic financial planner whose biggest worry is how to line up the sticky notes on her desk just so, but when her free-spirited, vivacious aunt dies in a car accident halfway across the world, Lucy’s carefully ordered life spins out of control.

With her last family member gone, the big 3-0 approaching, domestication closing in, and her faltering biological clock a never-ending reminder of the time she isn’t spending building a family, Lucy tries to make a home for herself and her eco-activist boyfriend in the fixer-upper she’s inherited. But as she struggles to settle into a life of cohabitation, organic lentils and sock thievery, she starts to wonder how she ended up there–and when she’ll feel alive again. As she works through her grief and tries to find somewhere to belong, Lucy begins to understand that sometimes, realizing one dream might mean giving up another.

Poignant, quirky, and humorous, The Sock Wars is a contemporary women’s fiction story from author Maia Sepp that reminds us there’s only one thing harder than living up to other people’s expectations: facing your own.

DESCRIPTION:

John Hathaway, a young graduate and linguist, is appointed to a

government post in the Merambas. This Pacific island country adopted

Latin as its national language in consequence of a strange historical

accident more than a century ago. It is known as a tropical paradise,

with charming, friendly people and modest prosperity. John is

delighted with it and soon makes friends among the Merambi and the

expatriate Europeans.

The Merambas are not entirely bland, however. There is a

rumbling volcano, there is political intrigue, and disturbing

incidents affecting John include hilarious farce, a near natural

disaster, and an attempted murder.

John’s interest in the Merambas’ original Old Language and the

mysterious Sacred Document threaten to bring him into collision with

local taboos. He also falls in love, at first sight, with a stunningly

beautiful woman who is just leaving the Merambas, although intending

to return. But will she?
