A Land More Kind Than HomeA Land More Kind Than Home
by Wiley Cash

Hardcover, $24.99 » | Ebook, $11.99 »

I was caught up in this book from the opening pages. Cash's voice, heard through his three narrators, is extraordinary and pitch-perfect; he is a natural storyteller. This is a tragic tale of religious faith used for evil rather than good, but it's also a story of family connections gone awry. Past losses reconfigure the present; an innocent observance becomes the catalyst for ritual sacrifice. —Gayle

Mrs. Robinson's Disgrace: The Private Diary of a Victorian Lady by Kate Summerscale | $26 hardcover, $1.99 ebook | As she accomplished in her award-winning The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher, Summerscale brilliantly recreates the Victorian world, chronicling in exquisite detail the life of Isabella Robinson, wherein the longings of a frustrated wife collided with a society clinging to rigid ideas about sanity, the boundaries of privacy, the institution of marriage, and female sexuality. Buy now: print » or ebook »

The Infinite Tides by Christian Kiefer | $26 hardcover | "Smart, lyrical, deeply moving. The central character, a NASA astronaut who has touched the stars, must come to earth, as we all must.
