Life After Life
Kate Atkinson
In this fascinating novel, Kate Atkinson takes her English heroine, Ursula, through both world wars in a series of stop-and-start lives and "what if?" scenarios. It's a tour de force that ponders memory and déjà vu—and puts history on a very human scale.

Kent Haruf
Novelist Kent Haruf (Plainsong) delivers a profoundly moving tale about life, death, and the ties that bind the residents of a small Colorado town.

The Burgess Boys
Elizabeth Strout
The latest gem from Pulitzer winner Elizabeth Strout brings two lawyer brothers home to Maine to help their sister, forcing them all to face a long-buried family tragedy

Those Angry Days
Lynne Olson
Spanning the years 1939 to 1941, Lynne Olson's masterful book relives America's debate over whether to go to war—a bitter clash personified by FDR and Charles Lindbergh.

Above All Things
Tanis Rideout

Tanis Rideout's gripping, fact-based novel recounts George Mallory's quest to conquer Mount Everest ("Because it's there," he famously explained), from his perspective and that of his adored wife back in England.
