A GATHERING OF WOMEN… Six women have come to Thornberry, a small writers' colony on a tiny island off the coast of Seattle. They have come to work on their own writing at this secluded resort, but they have also come to hide, each harboring her own secret. A GATHERING OF DREAD… A devastating earthquake quickly shatters the haven these women have found. The resort is partly in ruin, communication has been cut off from the mainland, and the women are forced to rely on each other for basic survival. Then a man washes up on shore. Is he the salvation they've been looking for…or an even greater threat to their survival? A GATHERING OF LIES… Sarah Lansing, former Seattle public defender, remains suspicious of the man—someone from her past. And when another man arrives—this time a stranger—and one of the women dies in an apparent accident, Sarah suspects that they are stuck on the island with a murderer. But which man poses the greatest threat? And, most importantly, which of the remaining women hides a secret so devastating that it could put all their lives in danger?

Sarah’s Story offers an in-depth look at the mental anguish caused by a sick, twisted predator. It is rare to really be able to examine the torment serial killers and stalkers have on their prey. Unfortunately, there are not often survivors to tell their story. The images and nightmares that were created by his disturbing, threatening phone calls are brought to the surface giving the reader some real insight into the games played by these psychopaths. Even when the threat is removed, the lasting effects linger. The physical threat by a deranged monster is always evident. The emotional, mental torture is entirely different. Sarah is one of few people that can offer that firsthand account. She lived it for several months. Sarah’s Story gives both the physical and mental aspects of being stalked by a serial killer capable of evils beyond imagination. To make matters worse, the police could not catch him! Sarah Lea Pisan is a 52-year-old, mother of three, grandmother of five. She currently lives in Oregon, near the coast. She enjoys time spent with her family. She also likes to fish, clam and crab.

Returning to the story begun in the novel Immortal Coil and continuing in the bestselling Cold Equations trilogy, this is the next fascinating chapter in the artificial life of one of Star Trek’s most enduring characters. He was perhaps the ultimate human achievement: a sentient artificial life-form—self-aware, self-determining, possessing a mind and body far surpassing that of his makers, and imbued with the potential to evolve beyond the scope of his programming. And then Data was destroyed. Four years later, Data’s creator, Noonien Soong, sacrificed his life and resurrected his android son, who in turn revived the positronic brain of his own artificial daughter, Lal. Having resigned his commission, the former Starfleet officer now works to make his way on an alien world, while also coming to grips with the very human notion of wanting versus having a child. But complicating Data’s new life is an unexpected nemesis from years ago on the U.S.S. Enterprise—the holographic master criminal Professor James Moriarty. Long believed to be imprisoned in a memory solid, Moriarty has created a siphon into the "real" world as a being of light and thought. Moriarity wants the solid form that he was once told he could never have, and seeks to manipulate Data into finding another android body for him to permanently inhabit...even if it means evicting the current owner, and even if that is Data himself. ™, ®, & © 2013 CBS Studios, Inc.

Despite frequent calls for increased collaboration among teachers, we know very little about what this means for real educators in real schools.

The text discusses the demands of the public school workplace and the challenges and benefits of collaboration, providing valuable insights for preparing the next generation of teachers for collaborative activity. The absorbing portraits of teachers will help practitioners to contemplate this recent school-reform push as it relates to other issues and pressures in their professional lives.
