A Piano for Mrs. Cimino: Esther Cimino, a widow of seventy-six, is confused, exhausted, and no longer able to manage her life. Such at least is the opinion of her doctors, her two sons, and the judge who declares her incompetent. But time and some help from a caring granddaughter work a small miracle: Mrs. Cimino sets out to reclaim her independence, and finds that she not only has all her wits but some of the fires of youth as well.
The Old Neighborhood: Meet Steve Robbins, a nice boy from the Bronx whose dreams have come true. He has become a successful advertising executive, he's proud of his perfect wife with her own career, and he has two fine daughters. But something's gone wrong: with too many outside pressures and too little time for one another, the Robbins family is falling apart. Searching for old values to shore up his shifting foundations, Steve looks to his past.
The Gold of Troy: A fabulous lost treasure of ancient Trojan kings suddenly turns up for international auction. But who is selling it--and why? And where has the priceless collection been since it disappeared during World War II? Ruth McVeigh, head of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, is determined to solve the mystery. The bizarre treasure hunt leads her across Europe--into an unexpected romance, along dark paths of espionage, and under the threat of murder.
No Job for a Lady: In her unique and colorful career, Phyllis Lose has channeled a lifelong passion for horses into the skilled dedication of a top veterinarian, disproving the prevailing notion that a woman simply can't be a "horse doctor." Her widely varied cases have ranged from a police charger with a bullet wound to (when the circus came to town) a leopard with a cold, and she has had more than one "consultation" that turned into a narrow escape. To each of her patients she brings the same good humor, courage, and joyous devotion that enliven the pages of her book.« less
