Manchmal schenkt das Leben uns eine zweite Chance. Wenn wir weise sind, nutzen wir sie. Durch die Bars ziehen und Frauen kennenlernen - mehr hat Sean Riordan nicht im Sinn, als er seinen Bruder in Virgin River besucht. Doch dann steht der Pilot auf einmal seiner großen Liebe gegenüber. Beinahe vier Jahre hat er Franci nicht mehr gesehen - und fragt sich jetzt, wieso er damals vor ihr und einer festen Bindung weggelaufen ist. Nur zu gerne würde er der Liebe eine zweite Chance geben. Vor allem auch wegen Rosie, seiner kleinen pausbäckigen Tochter, von der er bis zu diesem Augenblick nichts geahnt hatte. Aber um Francis Vertrauen zurückzugewinnen, braucht es schon ein kleines Wunder - und die Art von Liebe, die Berge versetzt.

Thrust back to a world he hasn't seen in six years, Randy is confused and begins having hallucinations. At a train station, he sees a poster of a boy and girl on the beach. The girl transforms into Natalie, his first love, and his search begins. Meanwhile, Natalie's life hasn't turned out the way she imagined either. In the years Randy was away in Vietnam, Natalie clings to the hope he will eventually return. But about the time he does set foot back in California, Natalie has just met another man and thinks she's falling in love. As Randy watches war demonstrations and senses the dark mood of the nation, he turns to drink and other women, but Natalie is still in his heart. Not knowing that she is in an abusive relationship, he vows to leave California and start life anew elsewhere - until he and Natalie finally meet face to face.

Six modern plays are represented: Ibsen's Ghosts, O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night, Miller's Death of a Salesman, Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Pinter's The Homecoming, and Shepard's Buried Child.

Bestselling author Andrew Pyper returns with a riveting psychological thriller about how the people you’ve known your whole life can suddenly become strangers. What if everything you knew about the people you loved was a lie? After the death of their absentee father, Aaron and Bridge Quinlan travel to a vast rainforest property in the Pacific Northwest to hear the reading of his will. There, they meet up with their mother and troubled sister, Franny, and are shocked to discover the will’s terms: in order to claim their inheritance they must all remain at the estate for thirty days without any contact with the outside world. Despite their concerns, they agree. The Quinlans soon come to learn their family has more secrets than they ever imagined—revelations that at first inspire curiosity, then fear. Why does Bridge have faint memories of the estate? Why did their father want them to be sequestered there together? And what is out there they feel pulling them into the dark heart of the woods? The Homecoming is at once a gripping mystery, a chilling exploration of how our memories can both define and betray us, and a riveting page-turner that will have you questioning your very existence.
