Rosaura Douglas's father shot himself after her mother left him . . . or at least that's the story everyone is telling. Now her mother has remarried and Rosie is trapped in "The Cake House," a garish pink edifice in the hills of Los Angeles that's a far cry from the cramped apartment where she grew up. It's also the house where her father died--a fact that everyone else who lives there, including her mother, Dahlia, and her mysteriously wealthy stepfather, Claude, want to forget. Soon, however, her father's ghost appears, sometimes in a dark window, sometimes in the house's lush garden, but always with warnings that Claude is not to be trusted. And as the ghost becomes increasingly violent--and the secrets of her family's past come to light--Rosie must finally face the truth behind the losses and lies that have torn her life apart.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Cake can evoke thoughts of home, comfort someone at a time of grief or celebrate a birth or new love. It is a maker of memories, a marker of identities, and delicious! It was the year 878 A.D., and a man claims sanctuary in a small village home in Wessex. To the surprise of the villager, the man is not a passing vagabond but Alfred, King of the Anglo-Saxons. The village homemaker is happy to hide him from the marauding Danes, provided he keeps an eye on the cake she has baking in the oven. Preoccupied with how to re-take his kingdom, Alfred lets the cakes burn, and the incident passed in to folklore forever. From these seemingly ignoble beginnings, not only was Alfred able to reclaim his spot in history, but the humble villagers' cake has ascended in world culture as well. Alysa Levene looks at cakes both ancient and modern, from the Fruit Cake, to the Pound Cake, from the ubiquitous birthday cake to the Angel Food Cake, all the way up to competitive baking shows on television and our modern obsession with macaroons and cup cakes. Along the way, author Alysa Levene shows how cakes are so much more than just a delicious sugar hit, and reflects on how and why cakes became the food to eat in times of celebration. Cake reflects cultural differences, whether it is the changing role of women in the home, the expansion of global trade, even advances in technology. Entertaining and delightfully informative, Cake: A Slice of History promises to be a witty and joyous celebration of our cultural heritage.

From the author of the internationally acclaimed "Wintering: A Novel of Sylvia Plath" comes a funny, touching memoir of a crummy--and crumby--childhood.
This eloquent and hauntingly evocative story of Hawaii is a true classic and is an essential read for any enthusiast of Hawaiian culture and history.With a sincerity and candor often lacking in books stressing the exotic and unusual, the author says there is no denying that Hawaii presents the usual blend of the lovely and the unlovely and is no more perfect than any other place. He writes of "a one-way street to happy adventure in the South seas; a background of the Polynesian sort, so easy-going and laughter-provoking on the surface, so tragic at its end; green valleys barred with rainbows, and windswept palis."He write of Robert Lois Stevenson, who found peace in the iridescent Hawaiian Isles; of Mark Twain, who wrote, "No alien land in all the world has any deep strong charm for me but that one." On the tragic side , he includes a very vivid description of the Battle of Kealakekua Bay, in which Captain Cook was killed.More than thirty fine photographs and maps embellish and enhance this charming contribution to Hawaiian literature and Americana.
