When a woman inherits her estranged mother’s bookstore in London’s Primrose Hill, she finds herself thrust into the pages of a new story—hers—filled with long-held family secrets, the possibility of new love, and, perhaps, the single greatest challenge of her life. When Valentina Baker was only eleven years old, her mother, Eloise, unexpectedly fled to her native London, leaving Val and her father on their own in California. Now a librarian in her thirties, fresh out of a failed marriage and still at odds with her mother’s abandonment, Val feels disenchanted with her life. In a bittersweet twist of fate, she receives word that Eloise has died, leaving Val the deed to her mother’s Primrose Hill apartment and the Book Garden, the storied bookshop she opened almost two decades prior. Though the news is devastating, Val jumps at the chance for a new beginning and jets across the Atlantic, hoping to learn who her mother truly was while mourning the relationship they never had. As Val begins to piece together Eloise’s life in the U.K., she finds herself falling in love with the pastel-colored third-floor flat and the cozy, treasure-filled bookshop, soon realizing that her mother’s life was much more complicated than she ever imagined. When Val stumbles across a series of intriguing notes left in a beloved old novel, she sets out to locate the book’s mysterious former owner, though her efforts are challenged from the start, as is the Book Garden’s future. In order to save the store from financial ruin and preserve her mother’s legacy, she must rally its eccentric staff and journey deep into her mother’s secrets. With Love from London is a story about healing and loss, revealing the emotional, relatable truths about love, family, and forgiveness.

Folklore and Symbolism of Flowers, Plants and Trees by Ernst Lehner ,Johanna Lehner Book Resume:

It took homo sapiens — the human being — aeons to learn to walk on his two feet, and to turn his grunts into the rudiments of speech, so he could communicate sensibly with his fellow men. It took him thousands of years to discover the making of fire which enabled him to roast and cook his food. It took many more thousands of years to invent the club, the ax, the bow and the arrow, so he could hunt more easily for food animals; to learn how to till the soil, plant and harvest crops; and finally foresake his cave for a dwelling he built himself. And throughout all this time of evolution, where man lived out in the open, he was surrounded by flowers, plants and trees appealing to all his five senses: to his sight, touch, taste, smell, and even to his hearing, warning him by the rustling of leaves and grasses, the rasping of branches, the snapping of breaking twigs, and the crackling of fallen leaves underfoot of any approaching danger by man and beast alike. The behavior of the plants around man was always peaceful and soothing, and man found that there is no such thing as an ugly flower, a menacing plant or an angry tree. Man’s mind became attached to these friendly beings, willingly lending themselves to his needs, giving him food and shelter and pleasing impressions for all his senses. Flowers were the first decorative implement for the earliest attempts of man to adorn himself; they grew all around him and were his just for the taking. Throughout human history flowers, plants and trees became so interwoven with man’s daily life that they developed into symbols for his expressions and sentiments, his passions and affections, his beliefs and religions, his fears and superstitions. In Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Nordic mythology, in the Scriptures and Biblical legends, in Oriental beliefs and Occidental lore the fertile human mind assigned the medicinal and nutritious properties of plants, the beauty and fragrance of their leaves, flowers and blossoms as floral symbols to gods and deities, and representations for seasons and months of the year. They became heraldic devices of rulers and states, and badges for heroes and saints; floral emblems of feasts and events, and decorations for religious and worldly ceremonies; flowery expressions of love and desire, and tokens of admiration and reverence. The religious, legendary and symbolic meaning attached to many a plant in bygone days was handed down to us throughout the ages, and is still valid today. We still use many special plants, flowers and trees in accordance with their age-old symbolism for Easter, Christmas, St. Patrick’s and other holidays, for weddings and anniversaries, for funerals and memorials, in valentines for mother and sweetheart, and for many other occasions.

Must enjoy the delicious anticipation of ridiculously erratic pay. Mostly, must love being treated like fungus found growing out of employers Hermès bag. Those who take it personally need not apply. Who wouldn't want this job? Struggling to graduate from NYU and afford her microscopic studio apartment, Nanny takes a position caring for the only son of the wealthy X family.

When the Xs' marriage begins to disintegrate, Nanny ends up involved way beyond the bounds of human decency or good taste. Her tenure with the X family becomes a nearly impossible mission to maintain the mental health of their four-year-old, her own integrity and, most importantly, her sense of humor. Over nine tense months, Mrs. X and Nanny perform the age-old dance of decorum and power as they test the limits of modern-day servitude. Written by two former nannies, The Nanny Diaries deftly punctures the glamour of Manhattan's upper class.

Berlin, 1942. Three players take the stage. The first, a gorgeous actress—the rising star of a giant German film company controlled by the Propaganda Ministry.

Three sisters have returned to their childhood home, reuniting the eccentric Andreas family.

Biographer Margaret Lea returns one night to her apartment above her father's antiquarian bookshop. On her steps she finds a letter. It is a hand-written request from one of Britain’s most prolific and well-loved novelists. Vida Winter, gravely ill, wants to recount her life story before it is too late, and she wants Margaret to be the one to capture her history. The request takes Margaret by surprise–she doesn’t know the author, nor has she read any of Miss Winter’s dozens of novels. Late one night, while pondering whether to accept the task of recording Miss Winter’s personal story, Margaret begins to read her father’s rare copy of Miss Winter’s Thirteen Tales of Change and Desperation. She is spellbound by the stories and confused when she realizes the book only contains twelve stories. Where is the thirteenth tale? Intrigued, Margaret agrees to meet Miss Winter and act as her biographer. As Vida Winter unfolds her story, she shares with Margaret the dark family secrets that she has long kept hidden as she remembers her days at Angelfield, the now burnt-out estate that was her childhood home. Margaret carefully records Miss Winter’s account and finds herself more and more deeply immersed in the strange and troubling story. In the end, both women have to confront their pasts and the weight of family secrets. As well as the ghosts that haunt them still.

Apart at the Seams by Marie Bostwick Book Resume:

A woman in a failing marriage discovers a new pattern for living in the quilting series from the New York Times bestselling author of Ties That Bind. Twice in her life, college counselor Gayla Oliver fell in love at first sight. The first time was with Brian—a lean, longhaired, British bass player. Marriage followed quickly, then twins, and gradually their bohemian lifestyle gave way to busy careers in New York. Gayla’s second love affair is with New Bern, Connecticut. Like Brian, the laid-back town is charming without trying too hard. It’s the ideal place to buy a second home and reignite the spark in their twenty-six-year marriage. Not that Gayla is worried. At least, not until she finds a discarded memo in which Brian admits to a past affair and suggests an amicable divorce. Devastated, Gayla flees to New Bern. Though Brian insists he’s since recommitted to his family, Gayla’s feelings of betrayal may go too deep for forgiveness. Besides, her solo sabbatical is a chance to explore the creative impulses she sidelined long ago—quilting, gardening, and striking up new friendships with the women of the Cobbled Court circle—particularly Ivy, a single mother confronting fresh starts and past hurts of her own. With all of their support, Gayla just might find the courage to look ahead, decide which fragments of her old life she wants to keep, which are beyond repair—and how to knot the fraying ends until a bold new design reveals itself . . . Praise for the Cobbled Court Quilts series “Filled with wit and wisdom.” —Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author “Warmly nourishing, emotionally compelling.” —Chicago Tribune

Twenty-five-year-old Cassie Danvers is holed up in her family’s crumbling mansion in rural St. Jude, Ohio, mourning the loss of the woman who raised her—her grandmother, June. But a knock on the door forces her out of isolation. Cassie has been named the sole heir to legendary matinee idol Jack Montgomery's vast fortune. How did Jack Montgomery know her name?
