SECOND GROWTH, by Joan L. Cannon
Serge Dziminowicz is hampered by his past in a dysfunctional family. Having trained himself in self-sufficiency, he fends off approaches from women, shuns occasions for disappointment or betrayal. A college classmate is his only friend. He cannot trust others, or himself.
With success come real surprises. Through his professional ability, he meets not only a wife, but a new luxury, a startling attachment with horses, a budding appreciation for the natural world, and a child he adores.
When his career and his marriage both are destroyed by his feckless father, his reputation and his livelihood in shambles, he is forced to leave behind everything that has become meaningful to him.
In rural Vermont, he stumbles on a way of life that nourishes a second growth. A near tragedy is the catalyst that enables him to dare to trust. He ultimately learns he must lower his own barriers.
Second Growth is about overcoming the past, about learning how to accept, as well as how to offer, help. A brilliant physician must find a way to heal himself — in spite of himself.

THE LIMITEDS, A Geocaching Mystery, Vol. 2. by Jennifer Kirsch
Fourteen-year-old, Luke, dreams of spending July at Camp Unlimited, where campers explore cave networks, set off fireworks in pyrotech workshops, and sleep in tree house hammocks. But to get into the camp, Luke needs to demonstrate excellence in a sport, the arts, or school. More likely, he’ll end up at SURF, his town’s rec camp, where athlete’s foot, mildew, and warts plague the gym, bedbugs and lice infest the couches, and clumps of hair make frequent appearances in the burgers. When weird blobs start popping up on Luke’s computer, he’s too busy trying to complete his Unlimited application to notice. But when the blobs start looking like a secret, uncharted geocache, he and his friend Gabe follow their trail, only to find themselves battling superbug viruses and navigating labyrinths while on a quest to save lives.
