Senator Nicholas J. Ferris has always prided himself on doing what is right. Which is why he opposed the F.O.R.C.E. Act, which allows the police to act without concern for civil rights. When he comes to Cleaveland, Ohio, to open an agency to help victims of sexual abuse, he finds himself battling Agents of the F.O.R.C.E Act after a police shooting. One agent who may be on his side or not is Angie, a Latina with issues of her own. Of course there is also the urban legend of a shadow that devours criminals, which may be all too true.

In today�s world of very early identification of deafness, surgical implantation of cochlear implants and endless wireless technology and downloadable apps, Painting Bridges is magnificent in presenting

a sensitive and accurate depiction of the 1970s. The novel presents a time when late identification of deafness was the norm, resulting in limited language and speech development, amplification equipment that was rudimentary and bulky, and deaf educators were at war with one another in pursuit of parents� hearts and minds. Patricia Averbach has written a great historical novel documenting a contentious period in deaf education. -Beverly A. Goldstein, Ph.D

Don Robertson was a true Clevelander. He was born and raised in Cleveland, and after stints in the Army and one year at Harvard, he returned to Cleveland and attended Case Western Reserve University for one year. He then became a reporter and columnist for The Plain Dealer (1950-1955 and 1963-1966), The Cleveland News (1957–1959), and The Cleveland Press (1968–1982). He wrote 18 published novels, most of which took place in Cleveland and the fictional town of Paradise Falls, Ohio. Robertson is probably best known for his trio of novels featuring Morris Bird III: The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread (1965), The Sum and Total of Now (1966), and The Greatest Thing That Almost Happened (1970).


Paradise Falls, written between the second and third of the Morris Bird III books, “began as a 945-page flashback." Robertson kept a copy of his huge 1968 novel of small-town life on his desk “as a basic reference work." [Dennis Dooley, 1966 Cleveland Arts Prize for Literature essay: http://www.clevelandartsprize.org/awardees/don_robertson.html]

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A deeply evocative story of ambition and betrayal that captures the love affair between two unforgettable people, Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley--from the author of Love and Ruin and the new novel When the Stars Go Dark, available now!

"A beautiful portrait of being in Paris in the glittering 1920s--as a wife and as one's own woman."--Entertainment Weekly

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY People - Chicago Tribune - NPR - The Philadelphia Inquirer - Kirkus Reviews - The Toronto Sun - BookPage

Chicago, 1920: Hadley Richardson is a quiet twenty-eight-year-old who has all but given up on love and happiness--until she meets Ernest Hemingway. Following a whirlwind courtship and wedding, the pair set sail for Paris, where they become the golden couple in a lively and volatile group--the fabled "Lost Generation"--that includes Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Though deeply in love, the Hemingways are ill prepared for the hard-drinking, fast-living, and free-loving life of Jazz Age Paris. As Ernest struggles to find the voice that will earn him a place in history and pours himself into the novel that will become The Sun Also Rises, Hadley strives to hold on to her sense of self as her roles as wife, friend, and muse become more challenging. Eventually they find themselves facing the ultimate crisis of their marriage--a deception that will lead to the unraveling of everything they've fought so hard for.

A heartbreaking portrayal of love and torn loyalty, The Paris Wife is all the more poignant because we know that, in the end, Hemingway wrote that he would rather have died than fallen in love with anyone but Hadley.
