In Hovering Flight
Joyce Hinnefeld
"In this provocative and page-turning debut novel, Hinnefeld recounts the life of bird-lover, environmental activist and artist Addie Sturmer Kavanagh. Opening with Addie's death from cancer, and her troublesome dying wish, Hinnefeld's narrative migrates to Addie's days as a college art student, when she fell in love with birds and with the professor teaching her their biology."– Publishers Weekly
Mary and O’Neil
Justin Cronin
A luminous work of fiction that celebrates the uncommon in common lives, and the redemptive power of love. Mary and O'Neil frequently marveled at how, of all the lives they might have led, they had somehow found this one together. In Cronin's tender, heartwise novel, eight stories trace the lives of these two vulnerable young people as they rediscover in each other a world alive with promise and hope.
On Chesil Beach
Ian McEwan
Ian McEwan has caught with understanding and compassion the innocence of Edward and Florence at a time when marriage was presumed to be the outward sign of maturity and independence. On Chesil Beach is another masterwork from McEwan—a story of lives transformed by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.
Red Hook Road
Ayelet Waldman
Waldman’s follow-up novel to Love and Other Impossible Pursuits explores the aftermath of a family tragedy. Set on the coast of Maine over the course of four summers, Red Hook Road tells the story of two families, the Tetherlys and the Copakens, and of the ways in which their lives are unraveled and stitched together by misfortune, by good intentions and failure, and by love and calamity.
What I Loved
Siri Hustvedt
What I Loved begins in New York in 1975, when art historian Leo Hertzberg discovers an extraordinary painting by an unknown artist in a SoHo gallery. He buys the work; tracks down the artist, Bill Wechsler; and the two men embark on a life-long friendship. Part family novel, part psychological thriller, What I Loved is a beautifully written exploration of love, loss, and betrayal-and of a man's attempt to make sense of the world and go on living.
