How do you recover from loss and heartbreaking disappointment? Gwen never thought she’d be raising her three young grandchildren alone as a single parent. One minute she’s looking forward to early retirement and traveling with her husband. The next, her whole life is irrevocably changed. Now she’s drowning in financial worries, doubts about her ability to care for her grandkids, and sheer exhaustion. She desperately needs to do . . . something. Then she discovers the charming Second Chance Shop. Its quirky, warm-hearted owner Madeline needs a friend almost as badly as Gwen does—and offers a job just when Gwen needs it most. All that would be more than enough change for Gwen, but life seems insistent on growth and more growth—something the gardener in her would appreciate, except that it’s so painful. Nonetheless, she is determined to deal with her ongoing grief and to weed out her self-doubts and fear, so she can build a new future for her and her grandkids. When a handsome—and younger—single dad mistakes her for someone who might be interested in romance of all things, she has to laugh. He is so barking up the wrong tree. Or is he? Can Gwen find the bravery, strength, and renewed optimism to let herself hope for—and pursue—something new?

Sometimes love shows up when you’ve stopped looking Work was Toby Maxwell’s lover, and there wasn’t time to even consider a relationship, even though all of his friends had paired off, gotten married, and had kids. But he was content to wander the halls of his luxurious home alone. Bridal consultant, Laura Torres, had driven by the enormous house in Boulder at least a thousand times wishing she could get an invitation inside. The possibilities of using the house for a wedding venue had dollar signs going off in her head. But the owner wasn’t one to make friends outside of a close knit circle he kept. Wasn’t it her luck to pick up a pair of clients that were part of that circle? When Laura convinces her clients to have their wedding at Toby’s house, she knows she can make him a proposition that will net her a windfall. What she doesn’t expect is to fall for the lonely millionaire who thinks she’s only out for his fortune.

Something Old, Something New: Contemporary Entanglements of Religion and Secularity offers a fresh perspective on debates surrounding religious and secular thinking. In each chapter, Wayne Glausser focuses on a topic of contemporary relevance in which something old (the sacrament of extreme unction, Greek rhetorical tropes, scholastic theology) entangles with something new (psilocybin therapy for the dying, the New Atheism, cognitive science). Glausser uses the term "entanglement" to describe his distinctive approach to the relationship between religion and secularity. The concept of entanglement refers to a contentious but oddly intimate relationship in which secular ideas compete with corresponding religious convictions, but neither side wins by displacing the other. As traditional religious knowledge and values come into conflict with their secular counterparts, the old ideas undergo stress and adaptation, but the influence works in both directions. Whether they do so consciously or unconsciously, entangled secularists engage with and sometimes borrow from older paradigms they believe they have surpassed. Something Old, Something New takes an unusual approach to this popular debate, and offers a new perspective in the conversation between believers and secularists. This is a book that theists, atheists, agnostics, and everyone still searching for the right label will find respectful but provocative.
