The Striker by Clive Cussler
It is 1902, and a bright, inexperienced young named Isaac Bell, only two years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency, has an urgent message for his boss. Hired to hunt for radical unionist saboteurs in the coal mines, he is witness to a terrible accident that makes him think that something else is going on, that provocateurs are at work and bigger stakes are in play.
Until the End of Time by Danielle Steel
Bill is a dedicated young lawyer working at his family's prestigious New York firm, who leaves everything he trained for to follow his dream and become a minister in rural Wyoming; Jenny, his wife, is a stylist whose heart and soul are interested in fashion. She leaves the milieu and the life she loves to join him. The certainty they share is that their destinies are linked forever. Fast forward thirty-eight years, Robert is a hard-working independent book publisher in Manhattan, who has given up all personal life to build his struggling business. He is looking for one big hit to publish. Lillibet is a young Amish woman, living as though in the seventeenth century, caring for her widowed father and three brothers on their family farm. In secret at night, by candlelight, she has written the novel that burns within her, and gets it into Robert's hands, wrapped in her hand-stitched apron. He falls in love first with the book, and then with the woman he has never met.
