Dave Currick has loved Matty as long as he can remember. To him that means protecting her, especially from herself. Certain she’ll get cold feet before the I-dos, he accepts her off-the-wall marriage proposal, because then she’ll have to spend time with him.

The stories revolve around the loves and lives of the good people of Knighton, Wyoming, including those who own the ranches and those in the little town who keep the health clinic, law office, diner, school and flower shop running. Book 6, Where Love Lives One night changed them both forever. … Six years ago, rodeo cowboy Matt ran out on a spunky, wide-eyed student he’d just met. Now, a chance meeting with an eccentric billionaire has delivered an inheritance that will allow Matt to do something he’s long dreamed of – caring for retired rodeo horses. Zoe hasn’t forgotten Matt or the night he walked out on her -- and tromped on her heart. A doctor, she is back in Knighton, Wyoming, to practice medicine, sure that Matt would never return to the ranch where he grew up. But now, here he comes, waltzing back into town … looking just as good as ever. Where Love Lives is part of The Inheritance, a 12-author project that tells how eccentric billionaire Harold Hopewell's bequests affect the life – and loves – of 12 people he chanced to meet. In Where Love Lives, Zoe and Matt tussle over the best use of Hopewell’s bequest. But a deeper question looms: Will one night stand in the way of their spending the rest of their days together? Rodeo Nights Before Matt became a rodeo star, you can see him in Rodeo Nights at the start of his bronco riding career, when he idolized rodeo legend Walker. Kalli had left her bull-rider husband Walker, unable to bear her terrible fear for him. Or the fear that she might love him too much. But passion wasn't enough to overcome fear a decade ago. Walker faces down charging bulls every day, but working with Kalli for a summer as they try to save the Wyoming rodeo that means so much to their community, just might break him. Can the present carry them past the fears and broken trust ... to a future together again? Readers rave about Where Love Lives (from 5-star reviews): “Matt, strong, virile, ruggedly handsome and wary. [Zoe] distrustful, hard-working, caring and hurt. These characters’ lives are topsy-turvy due to faulty perceptions, past experiences and little belief in happy endings. With the help of friends and their openness, they move in the right directions. Great book!” “A delight. Zoe and Matt were lovers and kindred souls years ago for one night. … Their courtship dance, which only they fail to recognize for what it is, is a pleasure to watch. How they gradually work through the hurts and assumptions of the past is real and moving. The little touches of their personalities and character refreshing. The interaction of those in the small community is absorbing. … McLinn is the real deal writer. So satisfying.” “You will find everything here -- humor, sadness, love, anger, reading how people work through things in their lives for the better.” Praise for the award-winning Wyoming Wildflowers stories: “”Nothing short of heart consuming and thrilling.

"Von Zeit und Strom" ist der zweiter Roman des amerikanischen Autors Thomas Wolfe. Es ist eine fiktive Autobiographie und gehört zu den bemerkenswertesten Zeugnissen amerikanischer Erzählkunst des 20. Jahrhunderts. Thomas Wolfe (1900-1938) war ein amerikanischer Schriftsteller. In dem expressionistischen Dichter Hans Schiebelhuth fand er für seine ersten beiden Romane einen kongenialen Übersetzer, der dazu beitrug, dass Wolfe sich zeitweise in Deutschland höher geschätzt fühlte als in seiner Heimat. In Amerika gehörte William Faulkner, in Deutschland Hermann Hesse zu seinen Bewunderern. Aus dem Buch: "Immens und plötzlich und mit der abrupten Nahheit, der teleskopischen Magie, mit der sich Dinge im Traum ereignen, erschien der englische Dampfer an der Küste Frankreichs; er kam näher und ragte auf mit der eigenartigen Unvermitteltheit, mit der mächtige, riesenhafte Gegenstände, die sich mit großer Geschwindigkeit fortbewegen, näher kommen und aufragen; man hatte nicht das Erlebnis der Anlaufbewegung, des allmählichen, zunehmenden Größerwerdens, es war vielmehr so, daß das Bild des Dampfers von einer Größe übergangslos in eine andre verschmolz, so, wie manchmal im Kino die Gesichter der Menschen auf der Leinwand aus der Normalgröße in einer Kette von schnellen Überblendungen in Großaufnahme übermächtig eindrucksvoll vor den Zuschauer gebracht werden, ruckweise, schußweise, so, wie der Geist aus der entstöpselten Zauberflasche im Märchen."

Der stumme Frühling erschien erstmals 1962. Der Titel bezieht sich auf das eingangs erzählte Märchen von der blühenden Stadt, in der sich eine seltsame, schleichende Seuche ausbreitet … Das spannend geschriebene Sachbuch wirkte bei seinem Erscheinen wie ein Alarmsignal und avancierte rasch zur Bibel der damals entstehendenÖkologie-Bewegung. ZumerstenMal wurde hier in eindringlichem Appell die Fragwürdigkeit des chemischen Pflanzenschutzes dargelegt. An einer Fülle von Tatsachen machte Rachel Carson seine schädlichen Auswirkungen auf die Natur und die Menschen deutlich. Ihre Warnungen haben seither nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren.

Ein sensibler und unterhaltsamer Roman über die Komplexität moderner Beziehungen von der amerikanischen Bestsellerautorin Emma Straub. Was ist nach einem halben Leben von den Träumen und Hoffnungen der Jugend übrig? Durch einen Zufall findet Elisabeth heraus, dass ihr Mann Andrew sie vor Jahren betrogen hat. Elisabethʼ beste Freundin Zoe quält derweil der Gedanke, dass sie und ihre Frau Jane zwar als Geschäftspartnerinnen noch immer hervorragend funktionieren, die Gefühle im Alltag aber auf der Strecke geblieben sind. Und während die Mittvierziger mit alten Träumen und neuen Chancen hadern, machen ihre fast erwachsenen Kinder Harry und Ruby sich bereit, diesem Sommer ihren Stempel aufzudrücken und ins Leben aufzubrechen.
