The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey

Martine is a genetically cloned replica made from Evelyn Caldwell’s
award-winning research. She’s patient and gentle and obedient—everything
Evelyn swore she’d never be. And she’s having an affair with Evelyn’s husband.
Now, he is dead, and both Caldwell wives have a mess to clean up. Good thing
Evelyn Caldwell is used to getting her hands dirty.

You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson

Liz has always believed she's too black, too poor, too awkward
in her small, rich Midwestern town. But Liz has a plan that will get
her out of Campbell, Indiana, forever: attend an elite college, play
in their orchestra, and become a doctor. When the financial aid
she was counting on falls through, Liz's plans come crashing down . . .
until she's reminded of her school's scholarship for prom king and queen.

Morning Book Club
For the November Morning book club, we'll be meeting on Tuesday, November 29th
instead of Friday (due to the Thanksgiving holiday). We'll be reading The Nix
by Nathan Hill.
 
It’s 2011, and Samuel Andresen-Anderson hasn’t seen his mother, Faye, in decades—not since she abandoned
the family when he was a boy. Now she’s reappeared, having committed an absurd crime that electrifies the
nightly news and inflames a politically divided country. The media paints Faye as a radical hippie with a sordid past,
but as far as Samuel knows, his mother was an ordinary girl who married her high-school sweetheart. Which
version of his mother is true? Two facts are certain: she’s facing some serious charges, and she needs Samuel’s help.


To save her, Samuel will have to embark on his own journey, uncovering long-buried secrets about the woman
he thought he knew, secrets that stretch across generations and have their origin all the way back in Norway,
home of the mysterious Nix. As he does so, Samuel will confront not only Faye’s losses but also his own lost
love, and will relearn everything he thought he knew about his mother, and himself.
 
*Books will be available at the circulation desk.

Northern Spy by Flynn Berry

Tessa is at work one day when the news of another IRA raid
comes on the air. The IRA may have gone underground, but they
never really went away. Lately, bomb threats and security checkpoints
have become features of everyday life. As the news requests
information on a robbery, Tessa’s sister, Marian, appears onscreen.
She watches in shock as Marian pulls a black ski mask over her face.

Morning Book Club
For the December Morning book club, we'll be meeting on Tuesday, December 27th
instead of Friday (due to the Christmas holiday). We'll be reading The World Below
by Sue Miller.
 
From the author of While I Was Gone, a novel that showcases Sue Miller's gift for exposing
the nerves that lie hidden in marriages and families, and the hopes and regrets that lie buried in the hearts of women.

Maine, 1919. Georgia Rice, who has cared for her father and two siblings since her mother's death,
is diagnosed, at nineteen, with tuberculosis and sent away to a sanitarium. Freed from the burdens of caretaking,
she discovers a nearly lost world of youth and possibility and meets the doomed young man who will become her lover.

Vermont, the present. On the heels of a divorce, Catherine Hubbard, Georgia's granddaughter, takes
up residence in Georgia's old house. Sorting through her own affairs, Cath stumbles upon the true story
of Georgia's life and marriage, and of the misunderstanding upon which she built a lasting love.

With the tales of these two women--one a country doctor's wife with a haunting past, the other a twice-divorced
San Francisco schoolteacher casting about at midlife for answers to her future--Miller offers us a novel of astonishing
richness and emotional depth. Linked by bitter disappointments, compromise, and powerful grace, the lives of Georgia
and Cath begin to seem remarkably similar, despite their distinctly different times: two young girls, generations apart,
motherless at nearly the same age, thrust into early adulthood, struggling with confusing bonds of attachment
and guilt; both of them in marriages that are not what they seem, forced to make choices that call into question
the very nature of intimacy, faithfulness, betrayal, and love.
The World Below captures the shadowy half-truths of the
visible world, and the beauty and sorrow submerged beneath the surfaces of our lives--the lost world of the past,
our lost hopes for the future. 
 
*Books will be available at the circulation desk.
