Twins are double the trouble. And between his work at Weddings by Woodwards and his boys, widower Reese Woodward is convinced he doesn't have time for love. Then he meets Olivia Hastings—his sister's bridesmaid, and a woman with troubles of her own. The betrayals from Olivia's past make her wary of closeness. Yet who could resist the twins—or their father? Though neither is looking for love, Olivia and Reese's attraction continues to blossom. And soon, they just might find a second chance at love, and a doubly blessed happily-ever-after.

Fairy tales, often said to be ''timeless'' and fundamentally ''oral,'' have a long written history. However, argues Elizabeth Wanning Harries in this provocative book, a vital part of this history has fallen by the wayside. The short, subtly didactic fairy tales of Charles Perrault and the Grimms have determined our notions about what fairy tales should be like. Harries argues that alongside these ''compact'' tales there exists another, ''complex'' tradition: tales written in France by the conteuses (storytelling women) in the 1690s and the late-twentieth-century tales by women writers that derive in part from this centuries-old tradition. Grounded firmly in social history and set in lucid prose, Twice upon a Time refocuses the lens through which we look at fairy tales. The conteuses saw their tales as amusements for sophisticated adults in the salon, not for children. Self-referential, frequently parodic, and set in elaborate frames, their works often criticize the social expectations that determined the lives of women at the court of Louis XIV. After examining the evolution of the ''Anglo-American'' fairy tale and its place in this variegated history, Harries devotes the rest of her book to recent women writers--A. S. Byatt, Anne Sexton, Angela Carter, and Emma Donoghue among them--who have returned to fairy-tale motifs so as to challenge modern-day gender expectations. Late-twentieth-century tales, like the conteuses', force us to rethink our conception of fairy tales and of their history.

DIVDIVMore sly and imaginative tributes to some of the greatest writing of the modern age, from author Daniel Stern/divDIV In Twice Told Tales, Stern wonderfully reimagined classics of world literature—from Forster to Freud—in homage to their authors and the power of great writing.Twice Upon a Time continues the project, though this time Stern goes further, weaving stories around texts as diverse as Marx and Engels’s The Communist Manifesto and the poetry of Wallace Stevens. In “Bartleby the Scrivener,” Melville’s famous copyist is relocated to Hollywood; the hero is an agent who “would prefer not to retire.”/divDIV Infectiously clever, Twice Upon a Time enchants like the best of the authors to whom it pays tribute./divDIV/div/div

In between agony and ecstasy, between tragedy and comedy, unfolds this drama we call life. On the verge of adolescence, Daniel Abrams moves with his family to Los Angeles from the majestic mountains of Montana, where he had place, where he could, and often did, enter the realm of the gods through nature, a time always bright and delightful. Although miserable at first young Daniel begins to find place and feel at home after he meets Crystine Mercado, born in LA, and growing up right along with the big city. Neither can deny it is love at first sight, and together they enter a realm of love that few ever do. But they have their souls, by now entwined, wrenched asunder when his family moves back to Montana. Daniel notices from that point forward a mysterious and recurring thread being woven in the tapestry of his life that cannot be ignored, and he can't help but wonder if there isn't a purpose behind the strange and sometime bizarre events, for he discovers in Vietnam that in the realm of the gods there is also a dark and foreboding place. But he knows that to find the answers to his questions, he must somehow find Crystine, even if it takes a lifetime. Join Daniel as life sets him on a spiritual journey by first lifting him to the mountain top, then dropping him into a deep valley. And then, sometimes with gentle certainty, sometimes with agonizing painfulness, life lifts him out and sets him to sail an unknown ocean until he lands on a deserted island where he makes the discovery of who he truly is.

Although L.M. Montgomery (1874–1942) is best remembered for the twenty-two book-length works of fiction that she published in her lifetime, from Anne of Green Gables (1908) to Anne of Ingleside (1939), she also contributed some five hundred short stories and serials to a wide range of North American and British periodicals from 1895 to 1940. While most of these stories demonstrate her ability to produce material that would fit the mainstream periodical fiction market as it evolved across almost half a century, many of them also contain early incarnations of characters, storylines, conversations, and settings that she would rework for inclusion in her novels and collections of linked short stories. In Twice upon a Time, the third volume in The L.M. Montgomery Library, Benjamin Lefebvre collects and discusses over two dozen stories from across Montgomery’s career as a short fiction writer, many of them available in book form for the first time. The volume offers a rare glimpse into Montgomery’s creative process in adapting her periodical work for her books, which continue to fascinate readers all over the world.
