Where do dreams come from? What stealthy nighttime messengers are the guardians of our most deeply hidden hopes and our half-forgotten fears? Drawing on her rich imagination, two-time Newbery winner Lois Lowry confronts these questions and explores the conflicts between the gentle bits and pieces of the past that come to life in dream, and the darker horrors that find their form in nightmare. In a haunting story that tiptoes between reality and imagination, two people—a lonely, sensitive woman and a damaged, angry boy—face their own histories and discover what they can be to one another, renewed by the strength that comes from a tiny, caring creature they will never see. Gossamer is perfect for readers not quite ready for Lois Lowry's Newbery-Award winner The Giver and also for readers interested in dreams, nightmares, spirits and the dream world.

Juan Fuentes has a special gift. He can make objects appear out of nowhere, true pieces of matter created only with the fragments of his imagination, and on a stormy night during a history class at Brookhaven College, Juan makes the dead come alive. Ruthless nineteenth century murderers Mack “Mad” Maron and his three henchmen rise from their unmarked graves bloodthirsty, ripe for vengeance, and the night becomes one of survival for the students of Gossamer Hall—Lars, a criminal on the run. Reagan, a woman recovering from the suspicious death of her daughter. Lily, a beautiful girl with a dark secret. Josh and Caleb, two jocks on the rebound after a brush with drugs. Mark, a savvy whiz kid. As the night deepens into a hole of death, as the thunder and lightning rage war in the sky, it becomes clear there is only one way to stop the undead evil, and the secret lies within the dark rooms of Gossamer Hall….

From the national bestselling author of Truly a Wife comes a wonderful and tender romance set in nineteenth-century San Francisco. When wealthy businessman James Craig was awakened by heartrending weeping in the night, he thought he was reliving his painful past. But what he found was not his worst nightmare, but a beautiful and fragile dream, who made him yearn for a future...with her... Frightened and in desperate straits, Elizabeth Sadler arrived in San Francisco full of hope for a new life. But her hope was destroyed when she found herself alone and penniless. Then, like an angel in the night, an enegmatic stranger heard her cries, gave her comfort--and offered her a job as governess to his four daughters. In his eyes, she saw a love that promised her heaven. But angry whispers surround him--and keep him and his family separate from a town too prejudiced and suspicious to accept them. The ugly rumors, and the shadows of a past tragedy threaten to create an impenetrable barrier between James and Elizabeth. To love him, she must find the courage to stand by him, in the face of an ignorant and fearful society, and her own secret doubts... Includes a preview of the sequel, A Wanted Man.
