LARGE PRINT EDITION How do you handle a crazy jackass? Eddie knows. If you ask Eddie, he'll tell you pigs can fly and show you where to find real mammoth bones. Take his word for it when he tells you always to bet on the bear. These are things he learned while dreaming of becoming a cowboy in West Texas during the Depression. Through Eddie, the hero of "Tales of a Texas Boy," we find that growing up is less about maturity and more about roping your dreams. Hold on tight. It's a bumpy ride. A wonderful read for anyone who enjoys books like "Little House on the Prairie" or "Tom Sawyer." A great bit of nostalgia for seniors, too.

Now that her abusive ex-husband is out of her life, Sarah Richard is savoring her freedom. Surrounded by people who treat her and her babies like family, the three of them are thriving. Though occasionally haunted by nightmares from her violent past, she struggles to put it behind her. With a loving surrogate family, good friends, and a new career, all she lacks is a man in her life. The question is, will she ever be able to trust another man with her and her twin daughters' hearts? Dr. Tanner Collins is running from his own sordid past. The man has left a trail of women from one end of Louisiana to the other, and through half the state of Texas. Even when this bad boy tries to be good, he has women throwing themselves at him at all hours of the day and night. When his admiration for Sarah turn into something stronger, he keeps his feelings in check, knowing he'll never be near the kind of man she deserves. When Tanner rushes to Houston to be with his parents during his father's illness, he's forced to deal with hidden resentments toward his upper crust parents. At some point he accepts the fact that situations aren't always as obvious as they seem on the surface. Note from the author: The Halos and Horns series is filled with new characters you'll love, along with frequent appearances of old favorites from my La Fleur de Love series. Enjoy! Lori Leger

"Thomas Jeffrey Vasseur steeps us in a disappearing rural South, the New South, and the world at large. Here is true narrative variety: a little boy discovers the wonder and allure of flight; a ballet dancer from Texas falls in love; a Kentucky choir minister adopts a troublesome son; a German woman transplanted to the Deep South finally grasps the emotional needs of her teenage daughter. These tales of passion are full of peril, a recurrent awareness of mortality, the gaps that separate all people and threaten to separate them further from those they love." "The landscape may be a church in Kentucky, the battlefields of Southeast Asia, the Oregon coast or an airplane in flight. But all of these stories are linked by the theme of self-discovery and the awareness of others, culminating with the title novella where a Southern native meets a Vietnam Veteran who takes him to French Polynesia then an island in Fiji to repair a hurricane-damaged sailboat. This debut collection devotes itself to sense of place, both personal and collective history, some lyrical and some hard truths about the regions and locales that inspired it." "Ultimately, the novella looks closely at our country's ongoing attitudes toward race, class, spirituality, our globe's endangered natural environment, the aftermath of the Vietnam war and 1960s as a whole. In its variety of modes and themes - city versus country life, sexual desire and parenthood, our very American pursuit of earthly happiness and our resilient faith in God, Discovering the World: Thirteen Stories is a collection that probes the nooks and crannies of the human heart."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
