Today we celebrate:
LILA by Marilynne Robinson
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robinson has created a “tour de force” (Booklist, starred review) with the final volume in her Gilead trilogy. It’s a National Book Award nominee, an October Indie Next pick, and has two starred reviews and a major media line-up.
THE SILENT SISTER by Diane Chamberlain
Riley McPherson had always been told that her sister committed suicide, but when she cleans out her deceased father’s house, she discovers that Lisa is alive and hiding under an assumed identity. “A story of redemption, paranoia, and the power of shared bonds, THE SILENT SISTER is a powerful and thrilling novel. This tautly paced and emotionally driven novel will engross Chamberlain’s many fans as well as those who read Sandra Brown and Carla Buckley.” — Booklist
NIGHT BLINDNESS by Susan Strecker
Another October Indie Next pick and a BEA Shout ‘n Share selection is Strecker’s debut novel about a woman who returns home to take care of her ill father but is haunted by a horrible accident from her past. “Debut novelist Strecker presents an impressive story filled with moving characters and the raw emotions they go through.” — Library Journal
