A Newport Christmas Excerpt :

Ice skating? Sleigh rides? A white Christmas? Not at the Newport Beach house. In Southern California, it’s twinkle lights on palm trees, boat parades with colored lights everywhere, gondola rides and beach-front mansions decorated with Santas. But also cookie exchanges, house decorating contests and hot chocolate. And Jen is determined to re-create all of her grandmother’s Christmas traditions, if it’s the last thing she does. The Christmas angels have different ideas, though, and Jen and her lifelong friends create an entirely different—and even more heartwarming—tradition.

Private Newport Excerpt :

Newport, Rhode Island, blessed with stunning ocean vistas and constant sea breezes, is home to some of the most exceptional private residences in America. Its deeply rooted history makes it a perennial destination, with more than 3.5 million visitors each year. Although it is one of the most high profile towns in the country, Newport is also one of the most cloistered. Private Newport: At Home and in the Garden offers an invitation to venture beyond the privet hedges and massive iron gates. It is the first book to step inside the privately owned mansions to reveal a diverse collection of architectural jewels complemented by spectacular gardens. These homes, created by distinguished architects and landscape designers, are stunning examples of Newport's 375-year "old-world" heritage. Eighteen exquisite and unique homes are prominently featured-from the resilient crescent curve of majestic Seafair, which withstood the Hurricane of '38, to the prizewinning Japanese garden at Wildacre, to the nostalgic working farm of heritage breeds at Swiss Village-each contributing its own part to the "Eden of America."

By The Light Of The Moon Excerpt :

Hanna has found her place in the world—namely the seaside resort on the Sea of Cortez, rescuing abused and abandoned horses. With her dedication, commitment and patience, her rescue horses love running along the beach as much as she does. Her peaceful lifestyle suits her just fine. After leaving Ireland and traveling the world, Colin lands in a place he’s grown to love. He gives his time and energy to the volunteer fire department along the shore, and is happy to do it. But with the development of the new resort and the vaquita sanctuary, things are changing in their community along the beach. And not everybody is happy about it. Playa Luna and all of the seaside communities are at risk, even the new resort, as the volunteer firefighter brigade realizes that the fires they’ve raced to contain aren’t random. Colin sets out to find out what’s going on and needs help. As much as Hannah can’t believe that anyone would do harm to the place she loves, she knows Colin can’t do this alone.

Christmas in America Excerpt :

The manger or Macy's? Americans might well wonder which is the real shrine of Christmas, as they take part each year in a mix of churchgoing, shopping, and family togetherness. But the history of Christmas cannot be summed up so easily as the commercialization of a sacred day. As Penne Restad reveals in this marvelous new book, it has always been an ambiguous meld of sacred thoughts and worldly actions-- as well as a fascinating reflection of our changing society. In Christmas in America, Restad brilliantly captures the rise and transformation of our most universal national holiday. In colonial times, it was celebrated either as an utterly solemn or a wildly social event--if it was celebrated at all. Virginians hunted, danced, and feasted. City dwellers flooded the streets in raucous demonstrations. Puritan New Englanders denounced the whole affair. Restad shows that as times changed, Christmas changed--and grew in popularity. In the early 1800s, New York served as an epicenter of the newly emerging holiday, drawing on its roots as a Dutch colony (St. Nicholas was particularly popular in the Netherlands, even after the Reformation), and aided by such men as Washington Irving. In 1822, another New Yorker named Clement Clarke Moore penned a poem now known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," virtually inventing the modern Santa Claus. Well-to-do townspeople displayed a German novelty, the decorated fir tree, in their parlors; an enterprising printer discovered the money to be made from Christmas cards; and a hodgepodge of year-end celebrations began to coalesce around December 25 and the figure of Santa. The homecoming significance of the holiday increased with the Civil War, and by the end of the nineteenth century a full- fledged national holiday had materialized, forged out of borrowed and invented custom alike, and driven by a passion for gift-giving. In the twentieth century, Christmas seeped into every niche of our conscious and unconscious lives to become a f
