THE DREAM DAUGHTER
by Diane Chamberlain

October 2018 LibraryReads pick!

THE LOVELY BONES meets THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE in Chamberlain‘s new novel about a mother who must take a mind-bending leap of faith in order to save her unborn baby girl who has a heart defect.

“Chamberlain expertly blends the time-travel elements with the wonderful story of a mother’s love and the depths of sacrifice she makes for her child. This is a page-turning crowd-pleaser.” Publishers Weekly

“Chamberlain stretches her sense of familial relationships and toe-curling suspense in new directions, weaving in elements of trust, history, and time as she explores the things we do for love. With a little tension and a lot of heart, THE DREAM DAUGHTER will delight Chamberlain’s fans and hook new readers.” Booklist

THE FLAME: Poems Notebooks Lyrics Drawings
by Leonard Cohen

If you felt Leonard Cohen’s death in 2016 as a personal assault, this book is a posthumous balm: a collection of previously unpublished poems, lyrics, and sketches. All of Cohen’s work has a raw, straight-to-the-heart intensity—reach for this the next time you need inspiration for a wedding toast that will leave them gutted, or any other moment you need a little sustenance for the soul.

“Poignant and brave, lit up with flashes of anger, this is a luminous collection and classic Cohen.” Booklist, starred review
