Happy #BookBday (2/10/14 Edition)

Today we wish Happy #BookBday to two fabulous works of fiction:

THE LAST GOOD PARADISE by Tatjana Soli
From the bestselling author of THE LOTUS EATERS and THE FORGETTING TREE comes a black comedy set on an island resort, where guests attempting to flee their troubles realize they can’t escape who they are. “Passions ignite and plots are hatched as Soli’s wise, piercing insights into human nature ground the novel and make it a rewarding read.” — Booklist

THE SECRETS OF MIDWIVES by Sally Hepworth
Perfect for readers who enjoyed Chris Bohjalian’s MIDWIVES and the BBC series Call the Midwife. “Hepworth dazzles in this smart and engaging tale of three generations of midwives in Providence, R.I. Telling the story from three points of view—those of her grandmother, Floss; her well-meaning but often overbearing daughter, Grace; and Grace’s reticent daughter, Neva—Hepworth effortlessly switches from the past to the present, moving the story forward while skillfully providing just the right amount of backstory.” Publishers Weekly, starred review
