Summary

"The Evening Chorus serenades people brutally marked by war, yet enduring to live - and relish - the tiny pleasures of another day. With her trademark prose - exquisitely limpid - Humphreys convinces us of the birdlike strength of the powerless." (Emma Donoghue) Downed during his first mission, James Hunter is taken captive as a German POW. To bide the time, he studies a nest of redstarts at the edge of camp. Some prisoners plot escape; some are shot. And then, one day, James is called to the kommandant's office. Meanwhile, back home, James' new wife, Rose, is on her own, free in a way she has never known. Then, James' sister, Enid, loses everything during the Blitz and must seek shelter with Rose. In a cottage near Ashdown forest, the two women jealously guard secrets but form a surprising friendship. Each of these characters will find unexpected freedom amid war's privations and discover confinements that come with peace. The Evening Chorus is a beautiful, astonishing examination of love, loss, escape, and the ways in which the intrusions of the natural world can save us.

Summary

New York Times best-selling author K. Bromberg is back with a new Kincade sister and a swoon-worthy football player in an all new stand-alone romance that will make you believe in first crushes and true love. I’ve signed numerous players to my family’s agency - I assumed winning over my next client would be just as easy.  The last thing I expected was to run into the boy who took my first kiss and broke my heart: only now Drew Bowman is all grown up.  Sexy. Scandal-tainted. Second-string. The crush I never got over. I tell myself work is the reason I can’t get him out of my head. I tell him his talent far outweighs his position, and I know I can help. I lie and lie, because admitting that I want a second chance at my first love is impossible.  Some lines cannot be crossed, and ours was drawn in the sand years ago. ***  I’m supposed to hate her.  I’ve been told so time and again for 10 years - her father ruined our family, smeared my name before my career even began.  But that’s not what I’m feeling now. Brexton Kincade just strode out of my memories and onto my field.  Driven. Determined. Grown up. The Capulet to my Montague. Being with her would be an unforgivable sin against my father, but I can’t resist the pull between us. Even if it means hiding what we have. Even if it means confronting the secrets I’ve always feared were lies.
