A Piece of the World
Christina Baker Kline
 
To Christina Olson, the entire world was her family’s remote farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. Born in the home her family had lived in for generations, and increasingly incapacitated by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for more than twenty years, she was host and inspiration for the artist Andrew Wyeth, and became the subject of one of the best known American paintings of the twentieth century.


                                                     The Second Mrs. Hockaday 
Susan Rivers
 
Inspired by a true incident, this saga conjures the era with uncanny immediacy. Amid the desperation of wartime, Placidia sees the social order of her Southern homeland unravel as her views on race and family are transformed. A love story, a story of racial divide, and a story of the South as it fell in the war, The Second Mrs. Hockaday reveals how that generation—and the next—began to see their world anew.


The Underground Railroad 
Colson Whitehead
 
From prize-winning bestselling author Colson Whitehead a magnificent tour de force chronicling a young slave's adventure as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.



 The One in a Million Boy 
Monica Wood
 
The incandescent story of a 104-year-old woman and the sweet, strange young boy assigned to help her around the house — a friendship that touches each member of the boy’s unmoored family.



 a voice in the tide 
Nancy Shappell
 
A New England woman, fighting muted incest memories with toxic self-injury, is on a mission for the mother who denies sacrificing her, to validate the family truth before one of them dies. After decades of self-blame and illness, Nancy realizes the very things she had fought against, detoxing her own fear and anger, living her truth, and loving herself, were the only real sources of validation.
