When an early 1900s love story makes its way from revolutionary Russia to a small town in America, a young girl’s life begins to change.
Clara Bradley moves from the city to a remote farming town in Eastern Washington—with nothing to offer a young cheerleader but miles of snow-covered wheat fields. She now has no cheer team and nothing to cheer about. But that move brings her an unusual neighbor: an elderly Russian woman who has a love story she is translating into English. Clara’s love of books draws the two together and she becomes immersed in the lives of Nina and Pasha.
ALWAYS KISS ME GOODBYE
In 1948, 21-year-old Shannon Lyons immigrated to America, and was hired as a waitress at The Crater Lake National Park Lodge in Oregon. That same summer, an Italian bus boy, Johnny Marino, is returning for his third summer. It takes some time for Johnny to work up the nerve to ask the beautiful new waitress out on a date.
A few dates, hikes, and picnics later, the two are celebrating Shannon's birthday and take a sunset drive to see Phantom Ship Island. Everyone has one summer in their life that stands out above the rest. For Johnny and Shannon, the summer of 1948 was one of those summers.
When Peyton Abercrombie runs away from an arranged betrothal, she is soon discovered by Captain Jackson Lafitte stowing away aboard the Mon Cherisse.
CHANCE OF RAIN
Christie Rinkley flies out of rainy Seattle headed for Loreto, Mexico on her honeymoon. The only drawback: she is on a honeymoon for one. When the local adventure hiking guide tries to warn the blonde lady that a monsoon is expected, it is lost in translation. Why worry about a chance of rain when the sky is blue and the sun is shining? Unless that hike is in Mesquite Canyon with two rock walls and a rising creek in the middle. When the winds begin to howl and skies burst, Christie knows she is sunk. Thank goodness burly, good-looking, "Alabama Joe" discovers that the "Americana loco" is hiking the canyon alone. This romantic comedy takes a fun twist when it becomes obvious to Joe that Christie needs rescuing in more ways than one. Fairhope, Alabama may just hold the key to Christie's dreams, and Joe's comical aunts; Hattie and Bessie, are determined to help make those dreams come true.
