Hufford has become a prime mover in the battle to eliminate ALS."-Mike Wallace, Cbs Correspondent "Obviously I knew how the book would end, but as I was reading I was completely mesmerized. Susan Hufford writes so beautifully and poetically. It felt like I was reading a great mystery. The book simply took my breath away. I applaud Hufford for her truth, honesty and humor and for her passion to show the world that there was a man in that ravaged body, and he had, and continues to have-a powerful soul. This book must be read!"-Amy Schor Ferris, Author & Columnist Famous for his portrayals of the vicious Roger Thorpe and the enigmatic David Renaldi, Michael Zaslow was at the top of his game when a mysterious vocal symptom propelled him on an odyssey that led to traditional medical resources and to the very non-traditional. Hufford, a novelist and psychotherapist interweaves Zaslow's experience and her own along with observations from friends, family, physicians and fans. This compelling mosaic offers a unique perspective of illness and of the enduring power of love that reaches beyond the boundaries of life as we know it.

A woman returns to her Chesapeake Bay hometown to face the demons of her past in this romantic suspense novel—“an excellent read” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Twelve-year-old Brynn Wilder and her brother Mark receive a traumatic double shock when their father is found dead in the woods—and then identified as Maryland’s notorious Genessa Point Killer. Eighteen years later, the emotional scars still haven’t healed for the Wilder family, and now Mark is back in Genessa Point to clear his father’s name. Though Brynn swore she’d never return, a series of cryptic phone messages suggest that her brother needs her. Then Mark suddenly goes missing, and Brynn must turn to Genessa Point’s new Sheriff, Garret Dane, for help. Brynn has good reason not to trust the Dane family—after all, it was Garret’s father who convinced the town of her own father’s guilt. But as they work together to find Mark, Brynn and Garret discover that deadly danger still lurks in Genessa Point. And uncovering the truth of the past may also lead them to a future together.

In this third cozy whodunit in the Family History Mystery series, a professional genealogist duo searches for the link between a death from long ago and a modern-day murder. As a professional genealogist, I’ve seen enough skeletons come dancing out of closets to get a respectable conga line formed up. But they’ve always been metaphorical skeletons. Until today. When genealogists Sophreena McClure and Esme Sabatier are called on by Detective Jenny Jeffers to help figure out who the corpse in the backyard of her father’s house is, they reluctantly agree. Known for figuring out the unusual, Sophreena and Esme do their best to uncover the mystery behind the corpse, and the glass coffin he’s buried in. Word soon spreads about the bizarre burial site, leading the people of Morningside to “adopt” the corpse and begin leaving mementos in memoriam for him. But when the body of a young woman is found near the memorial, the duo has another task on their hands: to dig into the past of the house’s previous owners. Could the clues to a recent murder finally help this soul rest in peace?
