LONGBOURN by JO BAKER

In this irresistibly imagined belowstairs answer to Pride and Prejudice, the servants take center stage. And, there is just as much romance, heartbreak, and intrigue downstairs at Longbourn as there is upstairs.

“Irresistible . . . Sequels and prequels rarely add to the original, but Baker’s simple yet inspired reimagining does. It has best-seller stamped all over it.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

CARTWHEEL: A NOVEL by JENNIFER DUBOIS

An American foreign exchange student arrested for murder; the brilliant lawyer tasked with her prosecution; and the sphinx-like young man who happens to be her only alibi. A riveting story perfect for fans of Emma Donoghue, Ann Patchett, and Curtis Sittenfeld.

An acute psychological study of character that rises to the level of the philosophical.” Booklist (starred review)

THE LOWLAND: A NOVEL by JHUMPA LAHIRI

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning, bestselling author of The Namesake comes an extraordinary new novel, set in both India and America—a tale of two brothers bound by tragedy, a fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past, a country torn by revolution, and a love that lasts long past death.

 “A magnificent, universal, and indelible work of literature. . . .  this is [Lahiri’s] most compelling yet.”—Donna Seaman, Booklist (starred review)

ONE SUMMER: AMERICA, 1927 by BILL BRYSON

One of the most admired nonfiction writers of our time retells the story of one truly fabulous year in the life of his native country—the year Americans attempted and accomplished outsized things and came of age in a big, brawling manner. What a country. What a summer.

LOSS OF INNOCENCE  by RICHARD NORTH PATTERSON
