SECOND HOUSE FROM THE CORNER by Sadeqa Johnson
A stay-at-home mother wonders what it would be like to escape the demands of motherhood until an unexpected phone call forces her to revisit long buried secrets to save the family she loves. “Johnson has written an all-too real story about a woman burdened with motherhood and wife duties while struggling to create a perfect life. Emotionally charged scenes will touch the hearts of female readers as Felicia’s past blunders come home to roost.” — Library Journal, starred review

WILD BY NATURE: From Siberia to Australia, Three Years Alone in the Wilderness on Foot by Sarah Marquis
“Swiss explorer Marquis’s stunning memoir cannot be compared with similarly themed accounts such as Cheryl Strayed’s WILD.

This title is destined to become a classic in the travel writing genre.” — Library Journal, starred review
