Our bookseller Lany says: Two years have passed since the events of "The Hazel Wood": the shattering of stories as they freed themselves from The Spinner and the cyclical world of Hinterland. Now, back in the city she used to call home, Alice makes attempts to side with a normal human life as she graduates from high school and attends meetings with other Hinterlanders to help cope with their new way of life. As Alice begins to feel like she's finally broken away from her story, Alice-Three-Times, murders begin to crop up around the Hinterlanders. While the new world the Hinterland have found themselves in starts to shift and whisper shadows of their home, Ellery Finch is making his way to the real world and back to Alice. But will he make it back in time to save the Hinterland, and stop the coming of The Night Country? A brilliant sequel to "The Hazel Wood", Melissa Albert's "The Night Country" spins an even darker web of storybook tales around Hinterland and burns with the passion one feels when the only thing they want most in the world, and all others, is to go home.

The saga of the Logan family--made famous in the Newbery Medal-winning Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry--concludes in a long-awaited and deeply fulfilling story. In her tenth book, Mildred Taylor completes her sweeping saga about the Logan family of Mississippi, which is also the story of the civil rights movement in America of the 20th century. Cassie Logan, first met in Song of the Trees and Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, is a young woman now, searching for her place in the world, a journey that takes her from Toledo to California, to law school in Boston, and, ultimately, in the 60s, home to Mississippi to participate in voter registration. She is witness to the now-historic events of the century: the Great Migration north, the rise of the civil rights movement, preceded and precipitated by the racist society of America, and the often violent confrontations that brought about change. Rich, compelling storytelling is Ms. Taylor's hallmark, and she fulfills expectations as she brings to a close the stirring family story that has absorbed her for over forty years. It is a story she was born to tell.

Published: Ballantine Books - January 21st, 2020

From the New York Times bestselling author of The House of the Spirits, this epic novel spanning decades and crossing continents follows two young people as they flee the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War in search of a place to call home.

In the late 1930s, civil war grips Spain. When General Franco and his Fascists succeed in overthrowing the government, hundreds of thousands are forced to flee in a treacherous journey over the mountains to the French border. Among them is Roser, a pregnant young widow, who finds her life intertwined with that of Victor Dalmau, an army doctor and the brother of her deceased love. In order to survive, the two must unite in a marriage neither of them desires. Together with two thousand other refugees, they embark on the SS Winnipeg, a ship chartered by the poet Pablo Neruda, to Chile: “the long petal of sea and wine and snow.” As unlikely partners, they embrace exile as the rest of Europe erupts in world war. Starting over on a new continent, their trials are just beginning, and over the course of their lives, they will face trial after trial. But they will also find joy as they patiently await the day when they will be exiles no more. Through it all, their hope of returning to Spain keeps them going. Destined to witness the battle between freedom and repression as it plays out across the world, Roser and Victor will find that home might have been closer than they thought all along. A masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile, and belonging, A Long Petal of the Sea shows Isabel Allende at the height of her powers.

From Beth, Bookmarks' Bookstore Manager: AMERICAN DIRT should be required reading, taking readers on a gripping journey of one mother's desperate attempts to save her son. After her entire family is murdered by a drug cartel, Lydia and her eight year old son Lucas leave everything behind to make the dangerous journey north towards the United States. Cummins research and writing will bring the immigration struggle home to readers - there were no safe or easy decisions in this book, every option was dangerous and life-threatening but the only option they had at a chance for life. AMERICAN DIRT is a heartbreaking, hopeful page turner of a novel.

When My Time Comes: Conversations About Whether Those Who Are Dying Should Have the Right to Determine When Life Should End Cover Image
By Diane Rehm, John Grisham (Foreword by)
$25.95
ISBN: 9780525654759
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Knopf - February 4th, 2020

From Diane Rehm, renowned radio host--one of the most trusted voices in the nation--and best-selling author: a book of candor and compassion, addressing the urgent, hotly contested cause of the Right-to-Die movement, of which she is one of our most inspiring champions. 
Through interviews with terminally ill patients, and with physicians, ethicists, spouses, relatives, and representatives of those who vigorously oppose the movement, Rehm gives voice to a broad range of people who are personally linked to the realities of medical aid in dying. The book presents the fervent arguments--both for and against--that are propelling the current debates across the nation about whether to adopt laws allowing those who are dying to put an end to their suffering. With characteristic even-handedness, Rehm skillfully shows both sides of the argument, providing the full context for this highly divisive issue.
With a highly personal foreword by John Grisham, When My Time Comes is a response to many misconceptions and misrepresentations of end-of-life care; it is a call to action--and to conscience--and it is an attempt to heal and soothe our hearts, reminding us that death, too, is an integral part of life.
