Sabrina Stone: elegant society wife, loving mother of a severely disabled child, tragic portrait of a woman in pain. These are the impressions she conjures for investigator Derek McGill in their first meeting on the rooftop terrace of her Manhattan home. As for Sabrina, it is in their introduction that she senses a deep caring in this man. Sabrina next meets Derek in a maximum security prison--after he is convicted of murder. When curiosity and proximity bid her visit, she finds a hardened man, yet one who retains a germ of caring for her and her son. Sustained by that, Sabrina must make decisions that no wife or mother should ever have to make...and begin to fight for a wronged man's revenge.

When Hilary Cox sees her long-time lover announce on public television that he plans to marry another woman, she decides to write a tell-all expose about the mining magnate and his sordid past. Also seeking revenge is John's sister, Pamela St. George, who attempts to dissuade Hilary from completing her memoir, suggesting that there are more insidious ways to achieve her goal. Having suffered years of abuse at the hands of John, Pamela is determined to gain control of the family's tourmaline mining business. While Hilary confronts the demise of her relationship, Pamela struggles to reconnect with Cutter Reid, a man she has always loved but whom John has always kept from her. As Hilary discovers more about John than she bargained for, three decades of power, duplicity, and money culminate in a thrilling finale with one of Delinsky's most memorable villains.

But age has crept up, and the sole family member living there still can barely afford to heat the place, much less cover the taxes and cost of repairs. She knows a way to save it, preserving its glory and charm, but she needs help.Jessica Crosslyn will spare no effort nor expense to rebuild her ancestral home. But joining forces with architect Carter Malloy is the one thing she cannot do.She's known him since childhood - he was always a bully, and he was especially unkind to her - she can't imagine working with him now. Unless Carter has truly changed . . . and Jessica can finally forgive him? Home: it's where the heart is. Can love be found there too?'Delinsky reminds us that we sometimes need to revisit the past to embrace the future.' Diane Chamberlain'An unforgettable love story by one of the all-time greats' Goodreads

The Dream Comes True

Barbara Delinsky
Authors:
Barbara Delinsky

The final book of the Crosslyn Rise trilogy pits true opposites against each other . . . Like its sisters, The Dream Comes True was written before the age of cell phones, texting, and Google. Fortunately, emotions don't go out of style Nina Stone, the realtor who is marketing Crosslyn Rise, is a bundle of aggressive energy; petite and short-haired, a workaholic driven by the need for independence and financial security. John Sawyer, consortium member and potential buyer, is tall, shaggy-haired, and laid-back; not one to rush through life, he takes his time considering every word and act. He is also a single parent whereas to Nina, children are positively alien.The Dream Comes True is a love story between two people whose lives are so full that they don't think they need love. But here's a timeless notion from an author with over 30 million books in print: we all need love!'Delinsky reminds us that we sometimes need to revisit the past to embrace the future' Diane Chamberlain
