The Nightingale

Kristin Hannah

$17.99 $16.55

"...author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of WWII and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women’s war. The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France–a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women."--Kristin Hannah.com

The Great Alone

Kristin Hannah

$17.99 $16.55

"There are many great things about this book...It will thrill her fans with its combination of Greek tragedy, Romeo and Juliet-like coming of age story and domestic potboiler. She recreates in magical detail the lives of Alaska's homesteaders...and is just as specific and authentic in her depiction of the spiritual wounds of post-Vietnam America. A tour de force." --Kirkus

The Glass Hotel

Emily St John Mandel

$26.95 $24.79

"A striking book that's every bit as powerful -- and timely -- as its predecessor... In Vincent and Paul, Mandel has created two of the most memorable characters in recent American fiction... Mandel's writing shines throughout the book, just as it did in Station Eleven. She's not a showy writer, but an unerringly graceful one, and she treats her characters with compassion but not pity. The Glass Hotel is a masterpiece, just as good -- if not better -- than its predecessor. It's a stunning look at how people react to disasters, both small and large, and the temptation that some have to give up when faced with tragedy." --Michael Shaub, NPR

Before We Were Yours

Lisa Wingate

$17.00 $15.64

"Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals—in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country—Lisa Wingate’s riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets where we belong."--Penguin Random House.com

To Kill a Mockingbird

Harper Lee

$15.99 $14.71

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this is probably one of my mom's favorite books. It's never a bad time for a re-read.

The Woman in the Window

A. J. Finn

$16.99 $15.63

"The Woman in the Window is a tour de force. A twisting, twisted odyssey inside one woman's mind, her illusions, delusions, reality. It left my own mind reeling and my heart pounding. An absolutely gripping thriller."--Louise Penny

All the Light We Cannot See

Anthony Doerr

$18.00 $16.56

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. All The Light We Cannot See tells the story of a blind French girl on the run from the German occupation who crosses paths with a German orphan-turned-resistance tracker. "A tender exploration of this world's paradoxes; the beauty of the laws of nature and the terrible ends to which war subverts them; the frailty and the resilience of the human heart; the immutability of a moment and the healing power of time. The language is as expertly crafted as the master locksmith's models in the story, and the settings as intricately evoked. A compelling and uplifting novel."--M.L. Stedman

Daisy Jones & the Six

Taylor Jenkins Reid

$17.00 $15.64

"Each character is compelling but Daisy Jones is the star. She's a blazing talent who is unapologetic in her sexuality and lives life on her own terms. . . . Like a poignant song with lyrics that speak to your soul, Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid will transport you to another place and time."--Associated Press

The Great Gatsby

West III to include the author's final revisions and features a note on the composition and text, a personal foreword by Fitzgerald's granddaughter, Eleanor Lanahan--and a new introduction by two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward."--Bookshop.org

The Underground Railroad

Colson Whitehead

$16.95 $15.59

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award: "Colson Whitehead's book blends the fanciful and the horrific, the deeply emotional and the coolly intellectual. What he comes up with is an American masterpiece."--Ann Patchett, author of Bel Canto

Nine Perfect Strangers

Liane Moriarty

$17.99 $16.55

From the writer of Big Little Lies: "If three characters were good in Big Little Lies, nine are even better in Nine Perfect Strangers." --Lisa Scottoline, The New York Times Book Review

Circe

Madeline Miller

$16.99 $15.63

"With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world."--Libro.fm

Normal People
