"From the author of Sleeping in Eden, described as "intense and absorbing from the very first page" (Heather Gudenkauf, author of The Weight of Silence), comes a gripping new novel about two former best friends and the secrets they can't escape. Adrienne Vogt and Harper Penny were closer than sisters, until the day a tragedy blew their seemingly idyllic world apart. Afraid that they got away with murder and unable to accept who they had lost--and what they had done--Harper and Adri exiled themselves from small-town Blackhawk, Iowa, and from each other. Adri ran thousands of miles away to Africa while Harper ventured down a more destructive path closer to home. Now, five years later, both are convinced that nothing could ever coax them out of the worlds in which they've been living. But unexpected news from home soon pulls Adri and Harper back together, and the two cannot avoid facing their memories and guilt head-on. As they are pulled back into the tangle of their fractured relationships and the mystery of Piperhall, the sprawling estate where their lives first began to unravel, secrets and lies behind the tragic accident are laid bare. The former best friends are forced to come to terms with their shared past and search for the beauty in each other while mending the brokenness in themselves. Nicole Baart's lush and lyrical writing has been called "sparkling" (Publishers Weekly), "taut and engrossing" (Booklist), and "evocative and beautiful" (Romantic Times). The Beautiful Daughters is another exquisitely rendered, haunting story that will stay with readers long after the last page"--

The Compleat Angler is the most famous book ever published in the literature of sport. It is also a work whose unique celebration of the English countryside has attracted readers around the world since it first appeared in 1653. Izaak Walton issued the final version of his beloved book in 1676, accompanied by Charles Cotton's pioneering exploration of fly-fishing. The Compleat Angler is both a manual of instruction and a vision of society in harmony with nature. Itguides the novice fisherman on how to catch and cook a variety of fish, on how to select and prepare the best bait and make artific

An immediate success upon its initial publication in 1653, The Compleat Angler has since become the most reprinted secular book in the English language. Here we join Piscator, Venator, and Auceps on a morning journey through the English countryside as Piscator advises on catching and eating different species of fish and expounds upon the satisfactions of the fisherman's life. More than a guide to the subtle intricacies of the sport, Walton's treatise is a graceful portrait of a simple life made rich by virtue and good friendship. -- from back cover

21 editions published between 1931 and 2000 in English and held by 567 libraries worldwide
First published in 1653, The Compleat Angler is a book that both informs and delights in the purest sense of these words. Izaak Walton's classic celebration of fishing's subtle intricacies and the joys of submerging oneself, often quite literally, in the natural world is itself ingenious and reflective. A fisherman, hunter, and falconer discuss the merits of their respective pursuits. The "angler" argues that "the very sitting by the river's side is...the quietest and fittest place for contemplation," and details his favorite methods for catching, eating, and most effectively enjoying all varieties of fish. This modern English edition, illustrated by Arthur Rackham, brings The Compleat Angler to the attention of a new generation of readers, fishers, and nature lovers. As Thomas McGuane writes in his introduction, Izaak Walton's advice and instruction reach across time to remind us that "The Compleat Angler is not about how to fish but about how to be."
