In the aftermath of the tragedy, the remaining heiresses--Corinne, the perfectionist; Rowan, the workaholic; Aster, the hedonist; and Natasha, the enigma--wrestle with feelings of sadness, guilt, and, most of all, fear. Now they must uncover the truth about their family before they lose the only thing money can't buy: their lives.

Heirloom House

by Sherry Lefevre

Inspiration for Every Home Decorator with a Passion for the Past The Heirloom House is a humorous personal account of two interlocking obsessions: eBay and the quest to create a vacation house that looks and feels like a family heirloom. Beginning with recollections of her childhood summers in Nantucket, author Sherry Lefevre narrates the development of her personal aesthetic: wanting everything people with old inherited houses have. When she receives a bequest that allows her to purchase her own ramshackle summerhouse, she clicks on eBay and emerges two months later with a house fully furnished with other people's ancestral treasures, from toile curtains to taxidermy, at a more-than-affordable price. Filled with photos and drawings, The Heirloom House invites readers to follow Lefevre's eBay searches and imitate her heirloom-hunting strategies. Antique treasures are classified and eBay "search words" are suggested to assist the reader's own treasure hunting. Anecdotes, both informative and entertaining, enliven descriptions of the antique objects acquired, and while the whole endeavor is relayed with humor, the underlying message is a serious one: with enough love, anyone can have an ancestral home--an heirloom house.

Heirloom: Notes from an Accidental Tomato Farmer

by Tim Stark

One evening, 14 years ago, Tim Stark chanced upon a dumpster full of discarded lumber. He carried the lumber home and built a germination rack for thousands of heirloom tomato seedlings. His crop soon outgrew the brownstone in which it had sprouted, forcing him to cart the seedlings to his family's farm, where they were transplanted into the ground by hand. When favorable weather brought a bumper crop, Tim hauled his unusual tomatoes to N.Y. City's Union Square Greenmarket at a time when the tomato was unanimously red. The rest is history. Today, Eckerton Hill Farm does a booming trade in heirloom tomatoes and obscure chile peppers. An inspiring memoir about rediscovering an older and still vital way of life.

Heirloom Recipes

by Jennifer Saltiel

In today's hectic and tension-filled world, more and more Americans are turning to the comforts of home and hearth to soothe their souls. In the process, we are rediscovering our roots and returning to tradition. And few things speak more to our hearts than the recipes handed down from mother to daughter, from great-aunt to great-niece, generation after generation. These recipes remind us of whence we came - be it the steppes of Russia or the plains of Iowa - and are as rich in family history as they are in flavor.But how many of these recipes have been lost over the years - and how many of us long for just one more taste of Grandma's peppermint patty cookies, or Aunt Rose's latkes! We search for these recipes because we are searching for ourselves - and for the people who are no longer with us. Heirloom Recipes brings together the family recipes of the women of iVillage, and reflects the spirit in which these recipes were originally shared. Coupled with each recipe are the special tips, fond memories and the bit of love with which the food was originally prepared. As much a joy to read as it is to cook from, this book will feature blank pages where readers can add their own family heirloom recipes.
