- Enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner with her fiancé, Ryan, at one of Seattle's chicest restaurants, Kailey Crain can't believe her good fortune: she has a great job as a journalist and is no engaged to a guy who is perfect in nearly every way. As she and Ryan leave the restaurant, Kailey spies a thin, bearded homeless man on the sidewalk. She approaches him to offer up her bag of leftovers, and is stunned when their eyes meet, then stricken to her very core: the man is the love of her life Cade McAllister. When Kailey met Cade ten years ago, their attraction was immediate and intense, but it all ended suddenly, leaving Kailey devastated. Now the poor soul on the street is a faded version of her former beloved. Always is a beautifully unfolding exploration of a woman faced with an impossible choice, a woman who discovers what she's willing to save and what she will sacrifice for true love.
They must not have toilets in outer space, because this baby Martian keeps going in the wrong place: a birdbath, a bin, an up-turned hat. Perhaps if he masters "The Toilet song" he might learn to go.
Two teens, Hugo and Mae, are strangers until they share a cross-country train trip that teaches them about love, each other, and the futures they can build for themselves. British-born Hugo is determined to take his last-hurrah-before-college train trip across the United States. One snag: the companion ticket is already booked under the name of his ex, Margaret Campbell. Nontransferable, no exceptions. Enter the new Margaret C. (Mae for short), an aspiring filmmaker with big dreams, looking for an opportunity to expand her horizons. As Mae pushes Hugo to explore his dreams for his future, he encourages her to channel a new, vulnerable side of her art. But when life intervenes, will they manage to keep their new love on track? -- adapted from Goodreads.com
