Mount Vernon Love Story
In Mount Vernon Love Story — famed suspense writer Mary Higgins Clark’s long-out-of-print first novel — the bestselling author reveals the flesh-and-blood man who became the „father of our country” in a story that is charming. insightful. and immensely entertaining. Always a lover of history. Mary Higgins Clark wrote this extensively researched biographical novel and titled it Aspire to the Heavens. after the motto of George Washington’s mother. Published in 1969. the book was more recently discovered by a Washington family descendant and reissued as Mount Vernon Love Story. Dispelling the widespread belief that although George Washington married Martha Dandridge Custis. he reserved his true love for Sally Carey Fairfax. his best friend’s wife. Mary Higgins Clark describes the Washington marriage as one full of tenderness and passion. as a bond between two people who shared their lives — even the bitter hardship of a winter in Valley Forge — in every way. In this author’s skilled hands. the history. the love. and the man come fully and dramatically alive.

Anne of Green Gables
Anne Shirley. the orphan child who brings happiness and love into the lives of her foster family. is one of the most beloved heroines in all of literature. This wildly imaginative. red-headed chatterbox tries to fit into the narrow confines of Victorian expectations. but her exuberant spirit keeps leaping delightfully beyond the bounds. When Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew find that they are getting too old to work the farm by themselves. they decide to adopt an orphan boy to help out. To their dismay. they are sent a girl by mistake-an impetuous girl with a hopeless lack of manners. Pragmatic Marilla is determined to return her. but warm-hearted Matthew urges that she be given a chance to prove herself. The challenge laid down for this eleven-year-old girl-and the mishaps that befall her before she wins the heart of her foster mother-make for a delightfully charming story.
