"Annie's Song" is the true story of the unusual friendship between two ten year-olds, set in the 1950's. Emma is funny and smart and lives with her Italian family, across the way from Annie, who is mentally challenged. Emma's home is full of music and great cooking while Annie's home is somber and quiet. Together, however, they learn just what makes the other 'tick' and prove along the way, that love does, indeed, conquer all. This story is a glorious tribute to special needs children everywhere and everyone who would befriend them. For forty years Betsy Corona wanted to write the story of Emma and Annie. She finally got her chance in 2006. After working for several years in her parish elementary school's library, she came to realize the audience for such a story and began to write. "Annie's Song" was written as a legacy for the real life "Annie." Betsy is married and lives in Michigan where she and her husband, Rick, enjoy their many children and grandchildren.

Before she wrote her Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller The Shipping News, E. Annie Proulx was already producing some of the finest short fiction in the country. Here are her collected stories, including two new works never before anthologized. These stories reverberate with rural tradition, the rites of nature, and the rituals of small-town life. The country is blue-collar New England; the characters are native families and the dispossessed working class, whose heritage is challenged by the neorural bourgeoisie from the city; and the themes are as elemental as the landscape: revenge, malice, greed, passion. Told with skill and profundity and crafted by a master storyteller, these are lean, tough tales of an extraordinary place and its people.

The Great Michigan Read 2013-14 Michigan Notable Book for 2010 A Washington Post Book World's "Best Books of 2009," Memoir Beth Luxenberg was an only child. Or so everyone thought. Six months after Beth's death, her secret emerged. It had a name: Annie. Steve Luxenberg's mother always told people she was an only child. It was a fact that he'd grown up with, along with the information that some of his relatives were Holocaust survivors. However, when his mother was dying, she casually mentioned that she had had a sister she'd barely known, who early in life had been put into a mental institution. Luxenberg began his researches after his mother's death, discovering the startling fact that his mother had grown up in the same house with this sister, Annie, until her parents sent Annie away to the local psychiatric hospital at the age of 23. Annie would spend the rest of her life shut away in a mental institution, while the family erased any hints that she had ever existed. Through interviews and investigative journalism, Luxenberg teases out her story from the web of shame and half-truths that had hidden it. He also explores the social history of institutions such as Eloise in Detroit, where Annie lived, and the fact that in this era (the 40s and 50s), locking up a troubled relative who suffered from depression or other treatable problems was much more common than anyone realizes today.

She also begins making good on her promise to return the five hundred thousand dollars with anonymous monthly payments. But just as Annie's life seems complete, the dark history of the money returns to haunt her. Someone is determined to solve the mystery of a ten-year-old bank robbery and an enraged thief who has served his time is coming to reclaim his loot. Suddenly, Annie is plunged into a deadly chase, forced to use all her wits to keep her world from unraveling, and to protect the one thing she values most--the priceless gift of love.
