Happy #PubDay

Happy #bookbday to a LILAC GIRLS read-alike, a witty epistolary novel, and an SF favorite newly in hardcover!

THE WARTIME SISTERS by Lynda Cohen Loigman
For fans of LILAC GIRLS, the next powerful novel from the author of Goodreads Choice Awards semifinalist THE TWO-FAMILY HOUSE about two sisters working in a WWII armory, each with a deep secret. “With a perceptive lens on the challenges of whittling away grievances that have built up over years, THE WARTIME SISTERS is a powerful pressure cooker of a family drama.”–Booklist

HOLY LANDS by Amanda Sthers
A witty, heartwarming, and heart-wrenching epistolary novel about a dysfunctional family–led by a Jewish pig farmer in Israel–struggling to love and accept each other. “Comic, moving, and occasionally profound, Sthers’ novel is a delight.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

ALL SYSTEMS RED: The Murderbot Diaries (Volume 1) by Martha Wells
Now available in hardcover, ALL SYSTEMS RED is the first entry in Martha Wells’ New York Times and USA Today bestselling science fiction series, The Murderbot Diaries–winner of the 2018 Hugo, Nebula, Alex, and Locus Awards. “SecUnit, aka Murderbot, is a semiorganic corporate profit center, genderless and constructed of cheap parts to perform contract bodyguard services for clients who mostly don’t want them…. The creepy panopticon of SecUnit’s multiple interfaces allows a hybrid first-person/omniscient perspective that contextualizes its experience without ever giving center stage to the humans.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
