Un jueves de mañana en 1981, cuatro mil campesinos, huyendo un escuadrón de la muerte salvadoreño patrocinado por los Estados Unidos, trastabilló bajando una ladera por un monte cubierto de follaje, hacia el Río Lempa. Algunos fueron indiscriminadamente fusilados por las ametralladoras de soldados y helicópteros; otros se ahogaron mientras la corriente los arrastraba por el río. Los demás escaparon para vivir los próximos ocho años en campamentos de refugiados en Honduras. In 1989 muchos de estos refugiados regresaron a El Salvador como la comunidad repatriada de Valle Nuevo. Compañeros relata las historias de una relación de veinticinco años de acompañamiento, sanidad, y perdón entre Valle Nuevo y una asociación de iglesias en los Estados Unidos, las Comunidades de Misión Shalom. Los dos grupos han llegado a adoptar una comunión transnacional entre si a pesar de los abismos económicos, políticos, y espirituales que existen hoy. Esta obra es un esfuerzo colectivo y colaborativo de relatos y reflexión teológica, entrelazando relatos orales y escritos de sufrimiento, gratitud, de compartir, recordar, y proclamar la muerte de Cristo hasta que él venga.

"Los hombres son como los perfumes. En un instante, sin más juicio que mi ágil olfato, o me enamoro de ellos o los echo a un lado". Marisol es una exuberante poeta y archivista de historia que vive en el Miami contemporáneo. Al igual que su ciudad adoptiva, ella es un espíritu libre y sensual. Nacida en Cuba y transplantada a una temprana edad en la Florida, lleva dentro una nostalgia por la legendaria isla en que nació y que apenas recuerda. Su pasión por los olores la inspira a adoptar un perfume diferente cada vez que se embarca en una nueva relación amorosa. Tras la muerte de su querida abuela y una sucesión de malogrados romances sensuales, Marisol concluye que debe liberarse de las ataduras de su historia, abandonar causas perdidas y refugiarse en el único santuario que siempre va con ella: su propio corazón errante. Liberada al fin de su añoranza por la vieja Habana, "el París del Caribe", su romántico exilio está llamado a emprender una nueva vida. Privada de reclamar La Habana como suya, opta por su verdadero destino: París. Y es así que Marisol se lanza a desbrozar el camino hacia su futuro. Salvando la distancia entre el Miami efervescente de hoy y la mística Cuba de ayer, Siempre París es un canto a la geografía y la memoria, una obra repleta de humor, pasión y personajes inolvidables.

La autora bestseller de El Tiempo Entre Costuras, María Dueñas nos regala una novela brillante, un tributo a las segundas oportunidades y al poder irrefrenable del amor. Nada hacía suponer a Mauro Larrea que la fortuna que había levantado tras años de tesón y arrojo se la derrumbaría con un estrepitoso revés. Ahogado por las deudas y la incertidumbre, apuesta sus últimos recursos en una temeraria jugada que abre ante el la oportunidad de resurgir. Hasta que la perturbadora Soledad Montalvo, esposa de un comerciante de vinos londinense, entra en su vida para arrasarlo a un destino que jamás sospecho. De la joven república mexicana a la Habana colonial; de las Antillas al Jerez de la segunda mitad del siglo XIX, cuando el comercio de vinos con Inglaterra convirtió la ciudad andaluza en un enclave cosmopolita y legendario. Por todos estos escenarios transita La Templanza, una novela que habla de glorias y derrotas, de minas de plata intrigas de familia, vinas, bodegas y ciudades soberbias cuyo esplendor se desvaneció en el tiempo.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Filled with heartbreak and betrayal, triumph and fulfillment, The Right Time is an intimate, richly rewarding novel about pursuing one’s passion and succeeding beyond one’s wildest dreams. Abandoned by her mother at age seven, Alexandra Winslow takes solace in the mysteries she reads with her devoted father—and soon she is writing them herself, slowly graduating to dark, complex crime stories that reflect skill, imagination, and talent far beyond her years. After her father’s untimely death, at fourteen Alex is taken in by the nuns of a local convent, where she finds twenty-six mothers to take the place of the one she lost, and the time and encouragement to pursue her gift. Alex writes in every spare moment, gripped by the plots and themes and characters that fill her mind. Midway through college, she has finished a novel—and manages to find a seasoned agent, then a publisher. But as she climbs the ladder of publishing success, she resolutely adheres to her father’s admonition: Men read crime thrillers by men only—and so Alexandra Winslow publishes under the pseudonym Alexander Green, her true identity known only to those closest to her, creating a double life that isolates her. Her secret life as the mysterious and brilliantly successful Alexander Green—and her own life as a talented young woman—expose her to the envious, the arrogant, and Hollywood players who have no idea who she really is. Always, the right time to open up seems just out of reach, and would cost her dearly. Once her double life and fame are established, the price of the truth is always too high.

La mejor historia está siempre por vivir. Un giro al destino. Un viaje. Una segunda oportunidad. Incapaz de recomponer sus propios pedazos, la profesora Blanca Perea acepta a la desesperada lo que anticipa como un tedioso proyecto académico. Su estabilidad personal acaba de desplomarse, su matrimonio ha saltado por los aires. Confusa y devastada, la huida a la insignificante universidad californiana de Santa Cecilia es su única opción. El campus que la acoge resulta, sin embargo, mucho más seductor de lo previsto, y la labor de catalogar el legado de su viejo compatriota y profesor Andrés Fontana, fallecido décadas atrás, dista enormemente de ser tan insustancial como prometía. A medida que se afana en vertebrar la memoria de aquel hispanista olvidado, junto a ella va ganando cercanía Daniel Carter, un colega americano veterano y atractivo que no ocupa el sitio que debería ocupar. Entre ambos hombres, uno a través de sus testimonios póstumos y otro con su complicidad creciente, Blanca se verá arrastrada hacia un entramado de sentimientos encontrados, intrigas soterradas y puertas sin cerrar. Antes de encontrar respuestas, Blanca aún tiene mucho que entender. Con la misma narrativa lírica y personajes inolvidables característicos de El Tiempo entre Costuras, María Dueñas nos regala una segunda novela luminosa, un tributo a las segundas oportunidades, la reconciliación y la reconstrucción.

Though our hearts crave intimacy, though our minds understand our deep need for it, the self-revelation it requires is often too daunting a task. Complete and unrestrained sharing of self exposes the deepest human fear of being rejected for being ourselves. In The Seven Levels of Intimacy, Matthew Kelly both acknowledges and calms our fears, while teaching us how to move beyond them to experience the power of true intimacy. Matthew reveals that each relationship is built upon a pattern of interaction. In the beginning stages, we rely on casual interactions, gaining familiarity by focusing on superficialities and facts. We grow closer and begin to share our opinions, learning to accept each other and embrace the growing relationship despite the difference in our experiences and viewpoints. Once our differences and opinions are shared and accepted, we feel safe enough to reveal our hopes, dreams, and feelings, developing trust. With this trust, we open ourselves and are able to share our legitimate needs, becoming liberated from carrying the burden of our real needs alone. At last, we are deeply intimate and both willing and able to reveal our deepest fears. We are beyond judgment and feel trust and acceptance. By moving through and building upon each level of intimacy, we find comfort and gain trust in our partners and ourselves until, by developing and deepening our intimacy within each level, we are able to fully open ourselves, finally opening to the possibility of truly being loved. It is through mastering the seven levels of intimacy that we will break through to fully experiencing love, commitment, trust, and happiness. The Seven Levels of Intimacy is a brilliant and practical guide to creating and sustaining intimacy, whether you are looking for a deeper sense of connection with your spouse, looking for more fulfillment in your relationship with your boyfriend or girlfriend, trying to improve your relationships with your children, or simply wondering what you should be looking for in a partner. With profound insight and the use of powerful, everyday examples, Matthew Kelly explains how we can nurture the intimacy in our relationships. The Seven Levels of Intimacy redefines how we view our interactions with others. This new understanding leads us to successfully create the strong connections, deep joy, and lasting bonds that we all long for.
