It was a time of tranquility and turmoil. When Oliver Otis, a seventy-eight-year-old widower, fell in love, the realization shook him to the core. What was he to do about it? The daily silences of his Quaker faith, which usually brought him insight, failed to enlighten him now. He longed to unburden his heart… but his daughter was in England and wouldn't understand. The couple sharing his Rhode Island farm had all they could do to raise their son and build their own careers. That left Loveday Mead herself, but Oliver dared not imagine her reaction. After all, she was a younger woman -- seventy-two -- and a former college dean. What could she want with a simple farmer? It is illustrated by Ben Wohlberg with paintings by Nita Engle. BANKER: a condensation of the novel by Dick Francis. A winning day at Ascot: cheers, toasts… and terrible revenge. "It's a beautiful day for racing, " young banker Tim Ekaterin remarks at the Royal Ascot meeting. Tim finds the afternoon a delight, especially after a colt named Sandcastle makes Tim and hid friends all winners. But the end of this splendid day holds a grim surprise; one of the guests is assaulted by a young man with a knife, and only Tim's quick thinking averts tragedy. It is illustrated by Frank Morris.
