1900. Young pianist Catherine Wainwright flees the fashionable town of Dayton, Ohio in the wake of a terrible scandal. Heartbroken and facing destitution, she finds herself striking up correspondence with a childhood admirer, the recently widowed Oscar Williams. In desperation she agrees to marry him. But when Catherine travels to Oscar's farm on Galveston island, Texas - a thousand miles from home - she finds she is little prepared for the life that awaits her. The island is remote, the weather sweltering, and Oscar's little boy Andre is grieving hard for his lost mother. And though Oscar tries to please his new wife, the secrets of the past sit uncomfortably between them. Meanwhile for Nan Ogden, Oscar's housekeeper, Catherine's sudden arrival has come as a great shock. For not only did she promise Oscar's first wife that she would be the one to take care of little Andre, but she has feelings for Oscar which she is struggling to suppress. And when the worst storm in a generation descends, the women will find themselves tested as never before ...From the author of The Personal History of Rachel Dupree, shortlisted for the Orange Award for New Writers and longlisted for the Orange Prize, The Promise is a heart-breaking story of love, loss and buried secrets, which confirms Weisgarber as one of the most compelling literary voices writing today.

    My daughter and I were just discussing the Atlantis series and we were wondering if you had planned to do a book with Aeson's POV?

    No, there are good reasons not to purchase coupons. In addition to being in violation of the manufacturers??? policies, it simply does not make sense to pay for something that is given away for free.

    I currently have a website that has been hosted by Homestead for 4 years and I am not happy with their web site editor at all. I have been debating back and forth between Weebly and Squarespace. My basic question is this: is there a way to keep my current website live at Homestead while I rebuild the new one or the other's platform? So far I haven't seen how that can be done. Thank you for any guidance in this.
