The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek: A Novel

"Cussy Mary Carter is the last of her kind, her skin the color of a blue damselfly in these dusty hills. As a member of the PackHorse Library Project, Cussy delivers books to the hill folk of Troublesome, hoping to spread learning in these desperate times. But not everyone is so keen on Cussy's family or the Library Project, and the hardscrabble Kentuckians are quick to blame a Blue for any trouble in their small town. The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman's determination to bring a little bit of hope to the darkly hollers"--Provided by publisher.

THE SILENT PATIENT by Alex Michaelides

The Silent Patient

Alicia Berenson's life is seemingly perfect. She lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London's most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word. Alicia's refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety.
