Come back to Seattle’s Blossom Street with #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber! These are the next four stories (after The Shop on Blossom Street, A Good Yarn and Susannah’s Garden) in one of the most popular series around… Christmas Letters Katherine O’Connor (known as K.O.) adores her five—year—old twin nieces—and strongly objects to her sister Zelda’s plans to dispense with Christmas. Zelda is following the theories of child psychologist Wynn Jeffries, author of The Free Child (and also K.O.’s neighbor on Blossom Street). K.O. is particularly horrified by his edict to "bury Santa under the sleigh," and she’s out to prove that Wynn and his ideas are full of…snow. He’s not going to ruin her nieces’ Christmas! Too bad the guy’s so darned attractive… Back on Blossom Street Susannah Nelson, owner of Susannah’s Garden, has just hired an assistant named Colette Blake, a young widow who’s obviously hiding a secret—or two! When Susannah and Colette both join Lydia Goetz’s new knitting class, they discover that Lydia and her sister, Margaret, have worries of their own. Margaret’s daughter, Julia, is the victim of a random carjacking, and the entire family is thrown into emotional chaos. Then there’s Alix Townsend, whose wedding is only months away. She’s not sure she can go through with it, though. But, like everyone in Lydia’s knitting class, Alix knows there’s a solution to every problem…and another woman can usually help you find it! Twenty Wishes What Anne Marie Roche, owner of Blossom Street Books, wants is to find happiness again. At thirty—eight, she’s childless, a recent widow and alone. On Valentine’s Day, Anne Marie and several other widows get together to celebrate…a sense of hope. They each begin a list of twenty wishes—including things they’d always wanted to do but never done. When she volunteers at a local school, an eight—year—old girl named Ellen enters her life. As Ellen helps Anne Marie complete her list, they both learn that wishes can come true…but not necessarily in the way you expect! The Twenty—First Wish Anne Marie and her adopted daughter, Ellen, have each written a list of twenty wishes—on which they included learning to knit. Like many of their wishes, it’s come true and now they knit practically every day. But Ellen has quietly added a twenty—first wish: that her mom will fall in love with Ellen’s birth father, Tim, who’s recently entered their lives…

In einer packenden Erzählung schildert der Journalist Lawrence Wright erstmals umfassend die Vorgeschichte des 11. September. Vier Männer stehen im Mittelpunkt: Osama Bin Laden und seine Nummer zwei, Aiman al-Sawahiri, der FBI-Mann John O’Neill und der saudische Geheimdienstchef Turki al-Faisal. Meisterhaft verknüpft Wright ihre Lebenswege zu einem Gesamtbild der Ereignisse, Wendepunkte, Versäumnisse und Fehleinschätzungen, die den Anschlägen vorangingen. »Wo ihr auch sein mögt, der Tod wird euch finden, und wäret ihr im hohen Turm.« Mit diesen dem Koran entlehnten Worten mahnte Osama Bin Laden seine Kämpfer, furchtlos dem Tod entgegenzusehen. Im Rückblick lassen sie sich auch als düstere Warnung an den Feind lesen, dessen Hochhaustürme in New York zum Angriffsziel wurden. Osama Bin Ladens Aufstieg zum bekanntesten Terroristen des 21. Jahrhunderts bildet einen der Erzählstränge in der bislang vollständigsten Rekonstruktion der Vorgeschichte des 11. September durch den Journalisten Lawrence Wright. Daneben verfolgt Wright, der jahrelang recherchierte und Hunderte von Interviews führte, den Werdegang des al-Qaida-Mitstreiters Aiman al-Sawahiri, des obersten Terroristenfahnders des FBI, John O’Neill, der ausgerechnet in den Trümmern des World Trade Centers starb, sowie des saudischen Königssohns Turki al-Faisal, der als Geheimdienstchef seines Landes zwischen beiden Welten wandelte. Zu einer fesselnden Erzählung verwoben, erhellen die Lebensgeschichten zugleich die Hintergründe des Anschlags: die wachsende Radikalisierung der Islamisten, die Zerrissenheit arabischer Staaten, die widersprüchliche Haltung des Westens. Eine unglaublich spannende und gewinnbringende Lektüre. • Ein tiefer Einblick in Denken und Handeln der al-Qaida-Führer und ihrer wichtigsten Kontrahenten • Eines der besten Bücher des Jahres 2006 in Großbritannien und Amerika, Pulitzer-Preis 2007
