Mrs. Saint and the Defectives: A Novel

Critically acclaimed author Julie Lawson Timmer returns with a tale of how community can heal the brokenness in all of us.

Markie, a fortysomething divorcée who has suffered a humiliating and very public fall from marital, financial, and professional grace, moves, along with her teenage son, Jesse, to a new town, hoping to lick her wounds in private. But Markie and Jesse are unable to escape the attention of their new neighbor Mrs. Saint, an irascible, elderly New European woman who takes it upon herself, along with her ragtag group of “defectives,” to identify and fix the flaws in those around her, whether they want her to or not.

What Markie doesn’t realize is that Mrs. Saint has big plans for the divorcée’s broken spirit. Soon, the quirky yet endearing woman recruits Markie to join her eccentric community, a world where both hidden truths and hope unite them. But when Mrs. Saint’s own secrets threaten to unravel their fragile web of healing, it’s up to Markie to mend these wounds and usher in a new era for the “defectives”—one full of second chances and happiness.

Five Days Left
“This impressive debut novel heralds the arrival of an extremely talented writer.”—Jodi Picoult

Destined to be a book club favorite, a heart-wrenching debut about two people who must decide how much they’re willing to sacrifice for love.

Mara Nichols is a successful lawyer, devoted wife, and adoptive mother who has received a life-shattering diagnosis. Scott Coffman, a middle school teacher, has been fostering an eight-year-old boy while the boy’s mother serves a jail sentence. Scott and Mara both have five days left until they must say good-bye to the ones they love the most.
 

Through their stories, Julie Lawson Timmer explores the individual limits of human endurance and the power of relationships, and shows that sometimes loving someone means holding on, and sometimes it means letting go.

Untethered
When Char Hawthorn's husband dies unexpectedly, she is left questioning everything she once knew to be true: from the cozy small town life they built together to her relationship with her stepdaughter, who is suddenly not bound to Char in any real way. Untethered explores what bonds truly form a family and how, sometimes, love knows no bounds.

Char Hawthorn, college professor, wife and stepmother to a spirited fifteen-year-old daughter, loves her family and the joyful rhythms of work and parenting. But when her husband dies in a car accident, the “step” in Char’s title suddenly matters a great deal. In the eyes of the law, all rights to daughter Allie belong to Lindy, Allie’s self-absorbed biological mother, who wants to girl to move to her home in California.

While Allie begins to struggle in school and tensions mount between her and Char, Allie’s connection to young Morgan, a ten-year-old-girl she tutors, seems to keep her grounded. But then Morgan, who was adopted out of foster care, suddenly disappears, and Char is left to wonder about a possible future without Allie and what to do about Morgan, a child caught up in a terrible crack in the system.

Cinco Dias de Vida (Portuguese Edition)
Mara é uma advogada de sucesso, tem um casamento feliz, é uma mãe dedicada. Tem, também, uma doença devastadora que esconde do marido e da filha pequena. Ama-os demasiado para aceitar ser um fardo para eles. E tudo corre bem durante alguns anos. São anos maravilhosos mas sobre os quais paira a sombra da sua decisão aquando do diagnóstico: viverá enquanto puder manter-se digna. Agora que o seu corpo está finalmente a ceder, Mara estabelece um doloroso prazo: dentro de cinco dias, acabará com a sua própria vida. A mais de mil quilómetros de distância, Scott tem também apenas cinco dias para cuidar de Curtis, um menino que acolheu em sua casa e que será agora novamente entregue à mãe, que está prestes a terminar uma pena de prisão. Foi com Scott que Curtis conheceu a estabilidade e o amor e desfrutou plenamente da infância pela primeira vez. O que o espera é uma angustiante incógnita. Para proteger Curtis, Scott tem agora de abdicar dele para sempre. Mara e Scott são duas pessoas em contagem decrescente. Inesperadamente, as suas vidas vão cruzar-se e unir-se numa amizade que os acompanhará ao longo da semana mais difícil das suas vidas. E, no final dessa dura semana, qual deles estará feliz? Qual estará de luto? E qual deles terá desaparecido para sempre? Cinco Dias de Vida de Julie Lawson Timmer
