Week of December 9, 2019

Paperback releases for the week of December 9th include the second volume of Otto Penzler's Bibliomysteries, a collection of crime for bibliophiles that includes stories about rare books, bookshops, libraries, manuscripts, magical books and collectors --- in short, the wonderful universe that makes this precious object we all love so important and priceless; WHITE HOT GRIEF PARADE by Alexandra Silber, a powerful and luminous story of grief and coming-of-age, and a beautiful tribute to the relationship between a father and daughter; and TRAVELERS IN THE THIRD REICH, Julia Boyd's fascinating and shocking history of the rise of the Nazis, which draws together a multitude of expatriate voices --- even Charles Lindbergh and Samuel Beckett --- into an intriguing narrative charting this extraordinary phenomenon.

Colleen Hoover, author of Regretting You

Morgan Grant is determined to prevent her 16-year-old daughter, Clara, from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris --- Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see.
