When We Believed in Mermaids by Barbara O’Neal

When We Believed in Mermaids by Barbara O'Neal

My sister has been dead for nearly fifteen years when I see her on the TV news. I’d been working the ER for six hours straight, triaging young humans from a beach party where a fight broke out. Two gunshot wounds, one that nicked a kidney; a broken cheekbone; a broken wrist; and multiple facial Read more

The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes

The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes

20 December 1937 Listen. Three miles deep in the forest just below Arnott’s Ridge, and you’re in silence so dense it’s like you’re wading through it. There’s no birdsong past dawn, not even in high summer, and especially not now, with the chill air so thick with moisture that it stills those few leaves clinging Read more

Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me

Wild Game

Life is not what one lived, but what one remembers and how one remembers it in order to recount it. —GABRIEL GARCíA MáRQUEZ In writing this book, I’ve endeavored to be as factual as possible, turning to journals, letters, scrapbooks, photo albums, report cards, recipes, articles, and other records of my personal and familial history.

A Fire Sparkling by Julianne MacLean

A Fire Sparkling by Julianne MacLean

November 29, 2011 The view is wondrous from here, thirty thousand feet above the Atlantic Ocean, somewhere between London and New York. As I lay my head back and gaze out at the majesty of sunshine over fluffy white vapors, I take time to ponder all that I’ve learned over the past week and where Read more

Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson

Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson

I shouldn’t have come, and that’s the truth of it. It’s not even five o’clock in the afternoon, and I’m already fantasizing about a swift, painless coma. Something dramatic, involving a nice collapse to the floor, with my eyes rolling back in their sockets and my limbs shaking. It’s my niece’s annual post-Christmas tea, you Read more

Sweet Tea and Sympathy (Southern Eclectic, #1)

Sweet Tea and Sympathy (Southern Eclectic, #1)

MARGOT CARY LEANED her forehead against the warm truck window as it bounced along the pitted Georgia highway. She closed her eyes against the picturesque landscape as it rolled by. Green, green, green. Everything was so effing green here. GREEN WAS NOT her lucky color. It certainly hadn’t blessed the opening of the botanical garden’s Read more

The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda

The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda

I almost went back for her. When she didn’t show. When she didn’t answer her phone. When she didn’t reply to my text. But there were the drinks, and the cars blocking me in, and the responsibility—I was supposed to be keeping an eye on things. I was expected to keep the night running smoothly. Read more

City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

In the summer of 1940, when I was nineteen years old and an idiot, my parents sent me to live with my Aunt Peg, who owned a theater company in New York City. I had recently been excused from Vassar College, on account of never having attended classes and thereby failing every single one of Read more

Sea of Memories by Fiona Valpy

‘Welcome to the Drumbeig Nursing Home’. The words on the sign belie the fact that I’m standing in the pelting rain, on the wrong side of the glass door, stooping slightly to bring my ear nearer to the Entryphone in the hope that someone’s heard me press the buzzer and will respond. I huddle in Read more

Cottage by the Sea by Debbie Macomber

Cottage by the Sea by Debbie Macomber

Thirteen years earlier Keaton had noticed the beautiful teenage girl on the beach earlier in the week. Once he saw her playing volleyball with a group of other teens, he hadn’t been able to take his eyes off her. Her family had rented the Munson cottage and arrived Saturday morning. As soon as the car Read more
