              The Giver of Stars (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Large type / large print edition)

              Set in Depression-era America, a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their unforgettable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond When Alice Wright agrees to marry handsome American Bennett Van Cleve and leave her stifling life in England, she has littl...e idea that life in Baileyville, Kentucky, will soon seem as constrained as life back home--especially since marrying Bennett also turns out to mean marrying his overbearing father, owner of the local coal mine. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Mrs. Roosevelt's new traveling WPA library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. The leader, and soon Alice's greatest ally, is Margery, the smart-talking, self-sufficient daughter of a notorious local criminal, a woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. Alice finds Margery as bracing and courageous as anyone she's ever met--and comes to rely on her, especially as her marriage starts to fail. They will be joined by three other women--two white, one black--and become known as the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky. What happens to these women--and to the men they love--becomes a classic drama of loyalty, justice, humanity and passion. Though they face all kinds of dangers--from moonshiners to snakes, from mountains to floods--and social disapproval to boot. But they believe deeply in their work bringing books to people who had never had any, expanding horizons and arming them with facts that will change their lives. Based on a true story rooted in America's past, the storytelling itself here is enthralling--the pages fly, and the book is unparalleled in its scope and its epic breadth. Funny, heartbreaking, and rewarding, it is a rich novel of women's friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.

              Such a Fun Age (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Large type / large print edition)

              A striking debut novel from an exhilarating new voice, Such a Fun Age is a story about race and privilege, set around a young black babysitter, her well-intentioned employer, and a surprising connection between them that threatens to undo them both. Alix Chamberlain is a woman wh...o gets what she wants and has made a living showing other women how to do the same. A mom to two small girls, she started out as a blogger and has quickly built herself into a confidence-driven brand. She and her company, LetHer Speak, are a fixture on the working-mom-slash-CEO circuit. So, she is shocked when her babysitter, Emira Tucker, is confronted while watching the Chamberlain's toddler one night. Seeing a young black woman with a white child out late at night, a security guard at their local high-end supermarket accuses Emira of kidnapping two-year-old Briar. A small crowd gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make it right. But Emira herself is aimless, broke, and wary of Alix's desire to help. At twenty-five, she is about to lose her health insurance, and has no idea what to do with her life. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix's past, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other. With big-hearted empathy and piercing social commentary, Such a Fun Age is a story for our times, unearthing the stickiness of transactional relationships, the complicated reality of being a grown up, and the consequences of doing the right thing for the wrong reasons.

              By Sundell, Joanne

              Call of the Wild meets Brother Bear in this epic tale of adventure, endurance, and young love -- a heroic journey tested against America's last frontier. The 1909 All Alaska Sweepstakes is over. After three days of racing over icy crags, around bottomless crevasses, and through d...eepening snow, the spent Siberian huskies lay still. None complain. None sleep. Their watch eyes stay open. Drums of the ancestors' course through them and keep them silent when they want to howl to the Gatekeepers. One of their own is dead, their leader, Zellie. Something got her when she left the pack. The huskies instinctively know they are all prey. The war of ghosts isn't over. Young guardians, Anya and Rune, both know it. The ice storm is coming.
