In the Shadow of 10,000 Hills by Jennifer Haupt deftly weaves together the journeys of three women from vastly diverse backgrounds who are searching for family and personal peace in post-genocide Rwanda. At the heart of this novel that bestselling author Wally Lamb calls “an evocative page turner” is the discovery of grace when there can be no forgiveness.
The Night Child by Anna Quinn is the story of Nora Brown, an English teacher who lives a quiet life in Seattle with her husband and daughter until she starts seeing the haunting face of a young girl. Shaken and unsteady, Nora meets with neurologists and, eventually, a psychiatrist. As the story progresses, a terrible secret is discovered — a secret that pushes Nora toward an even deeper psychological breakdown. This breathtaking debut novel examines the impact of traumatic childhood experiences and the fragile line between past and present.
