              'Powerful and moving . . . Mary Beth Keane is a writer of extraordinary depth, feeling and wit. Readers will love this book, as I did' Meg Wolitzer, bestselling author of The Female Persuasion _____________ A gripping and compassionate family drama set between neighbours in subur...ban New York Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, two New York cops, live next door to each other outside the city in the 1970s. What happens behind closed doors in both houses - the loneliness of Francis's wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian's wife, Anne - sets the stage for the explosive events to come. When their children, Kate and Peter, form an immediate attachment, so too does a violent event divide the families and the Stanhopes are forced to move away. The children reconnect as adults and, as they fall in love, are forced to reckon with their shared past. _____________ 'Keane takes on one of the most difficult problems in fiction - how to write about human decency . . . a compelling case for compassion over blame, understanding over grudge, and the resilience of hearts that can accept the contradictions of love' Louise Erdrich, National Book Award winning author of The Round House 'Leaves one shaking one's head in frank admiration. A triumph' Matthew Thomas, bestselling author of We Are Not Ourselves

              It is the summer of 1940. Nineteen-year-old Vivian Morris arrives in New York with her suitcase and sewing machine, exiled by her despairing parents. Although her quicksilver talents with a needle and commitment to mastering the perfect hair roll have been deemed insufficient for... her to pass into her sophomore year of Vassar, she soon finds gainful employment as the self-appointed seamstress at the Lily Playhouse, her unconventional Aunt Peg's charmingly disreputable Manhattan revue theatre. There, Vivian quickly becomes the toast of the showgirls, transforming the trash and tinsel only fit for the cheap seats into creations for goddesses. Exile in New York is no exile at all: here in this strange wartime city of girls, Vivian and her girlfriends mean to drink the heady highball of life itself to the last drop. And when the legendary English actress Edna Watson comes to the Lily to star in the company's most ambitious show ever, Vivian is entranced by the magic that follows in her wake. But there are hard lessons to be learned, and bitterly regrettable mistakes to be made. Vivian learns that to live the life she wants, she must live many lives, ceaselessly and ingeniously making them new.'At some point in a woman's life, she just gets tired of being ashamed all the time. After that, she is free to become whoever she truly is,' she confides. And so Vivian sets forth her story, and that of the women around her women who have lived as they truly are, out of step with a century that could never quite keep up with them.

For five years the people of the US Virgin Islands have lived with the Ynaa, a race of superadvanced aliens on a research mission they will not fully disclose.

              For one star-crossed couple, New York City's Grand Central Terminal holds the key to an unforgettable love story sweeping from the Roaring Twenties to World War II and beyond--part The Time Traveler's Wife, part At the Water's Edge. In early December of 1937, Joe Reynolds and Nor...a Lansing meet by chance at the great gold clock at Grand Central Terminal. Although they go their separate ways, Joe never forgets the lasting spark between them. A year to the day later, Joe and Nora, who is wearing the same faded blue dress and pearls, meet again--this time by the famed Oyster Bar. Desperate to maintain the connection between them, Nora asks Joe to walk her home to Turtle Bay. But when Joe loses sight of Nora for a brief moment on the sidewalk, she disappears. After he goes to the address she gave him, he is shocked to learn that the Nora he met was killed in a fatal train crash in 1925. With the Roaring Twenties seizing the city streets, Nora comes of age in the posh neighborhood of Turtle Bay Gardens. A fiercely independent Barnard graduate, she convinces her mother to let her travel to Paris to experience her dream of being an artist. When her father falls ill, Nora is called home, but on the way home from the hospital, the train to Grand Central is derailed. Nora thinks she survived the crash, but when she appears out of the blue under the famed celestial dome in Grand Central Terminal, she realizes the tragedy had profound effects on her. Meanwhile, Joe is determined to learn all he can about Nora. As a leverman at Grand Central, Joe is in tune with the railways, its mechanics and inner workings, and soon figures out that Nora's life and fate are somehow tied to the station. And as Joe and Nora continue to meet year in and year out, he realizes that her appearances are summoned by Manhattanhenge--the stunning astronomical event when the setting sun perfectly aligns with the skyscrapers on the streets of New York. Joe, a man from an entirely different era and social s

              Hannah lives in Zimbabwe during the reign of Robert Mugabe- it?s a country of petrol queues and power cuts, and police with loaded rifles who patrol the city streets.

Hannah is wealthy, she is healthy, and she is white. But there are some things money can?t buy. Money can?t stop your divorced parents from fighting. Money can?t buy back your grandparents? farm. Money can?t always keep you safe. Her luck in life has kept her sheltered for a long time, but things are beginning to change. As she is forced to navigate the increased tension between her warring parents, the differences between herself and her peers, and her relationship with Gogo, Hannah starts questioning much of what she previously thought to be true.
