#1 -- -- THE THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE -- Booklist Years of trying unsuccessfully to conceive a child have broken more than Angie DeSaria’s heart. Following a painful divorce, she moves back to her hometown, where life rises and falls like the tides, to manage her family’s restaurant. Her fortune changes yet again when she hires Lauren Ribido. Angie sees something special in the troubled seventeen-year-old—and when Lauren’s mother abandons her, Angie offers the girl a place to stay. But nothing could have prepared Angie for the far-reaching repercussions of this act of kindness. MAGIC HOUR “A wonderful novel—wild, radiant, and vivid.”—Luanne Rice From deep within the Olympic National Forest—nearly a million acres of impenetrable darkness—a six-year-old girl appears, wild-looking and alone. Child psychiatrist Dr. Julia Cates is determined to free the extraordinary girl she calls Alice from a prison of unimaginable isolation. The child can’t speak and seems to have never been around people. As Julia seeks to help Alice, she discovers who the child is. The shocking facts about Alice’s past test the limits of Julia’s faith and strength, even as she struggles to make a home for Alice—and for herself.
