Ten years after losing her husband, Christina Connelly has worked through the pain, focusing on raising her teenage daughter and managing her small decorating business. But her romantic life has never recovered. Still, it’s irksome to be set up with arrogant, if handsome, doctor Andy Stern at her friend’s wedding. If he wasn’t also a potential client, needing his Upper East Side apartment redesigned, she would write him off. This is never going to work, Andy thinks. Still grieving his wife and struggling with a troubled son, he’s not looking for a woman, and certainly not someone as frosty and reserved as Christina. Their relationship will be strictly business. Yet to everyone’s surprise—including their own—these two find themselves falling in love. But if reconciling with their pasts is difficult, blending their lives and children to create a new family is nearly impossible. They’ve been given a second chance…but can they overcome all the obstacles in the way of happily ever after?
Oliver just wants to spread the word about wildlife conservation, but his plans go awry when the local prairie dog habitat is threatened Oliver Dibbs is passionate about animals, and he’s willing to do anything to help a good cause. The only problem is, Ollie doesn’t always think his plans through before acting on them, and this has gotten him into a lot of trouble. No matter what cause Ollie is fighting for—whether it’s tigers, wolves, or whales—something always goes wrong. It doesn’t help that his little brother, Bo, always wants to tag along. It’s hard to look out for a seven-year-old and save the world at the same time. But when Ollie finds out a local businessman is planning to build a shopping mall right over the town’s prairie dog habitat, he knows that he can’t fail. If he doesn’t step in and protect the prairie dogs’ home, they’ll all die. This time, Ollie has to make sure nothing stands in his way!

"Malae is like a young Nelson Algren or Richard Wright, one of those writers who can hit with both hands." —Russell Banks By way of Italy, the Felice family puts down new roots in Southern California, settling into a grand Victorian home and buying a share of the great American Dream. But for their five, first-generation children, an idyllic childhood didn’t quite translate into success and happiness. Rather, the pressures of living up to expectations drove a wide rift through the family. After decades apart, the five siblings find themselves together again at their ailing mother’s bedside, caught in a deadlocked feud over her hospice care. Into the morass steps Murron Teinetoa, one of their bastard children, who carries an idealistic hope of finally fitting in among her estranged relatives. In an interweaving narrative, Malae portrays the Felices in their formative years of the fifties; he excavates the personal lives of the siblings in the eighties and nineties; and he follows Murron in the present as she raises her son as a single mother. A powerful and fiery multi-generational story, Our Frail Blood captures the beauty and horror, the strength and fragility, the selfishness and love comprising the threads of familial bonds.
