Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.<br /><b><br />“Beautiful and propulsive . . . Despite the singularity of [Tara Westover’s] childhood, the questions her book poses are universal: How much of ourselves should we give to those we love? And how much must we betray them to grow up?”—<i>Vogue</i></b><br /><br /><b>“Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others.”—<i>The New York Times Book Review</i></b>

<p>The classic collaboration from the internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, soon to be an original series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant.</p><p><strong>“<em>Good Omens</em> . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—<em>Washington Post</em><br /><br /></strong>According to <em>The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter</em>, <em>Witch</em> (the world's only <em>completely</em> accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.</p><p>So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.</p><p>And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .</p>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER </b>• <b>A seaside town helps one young woman reclaim the light after darkness in an uplifting novel from #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Debbie Macomber.</b><br /><br /><b>“Romantic, warm, and a breeze to read—one of Macomber’s best.”—<i>Kirkus Reviews</i></b><br /><br /> Annie Marlow has been through the worst. Rocked by tragedy, she heads to the one place that makes her happy: Oceanside in the Pacific Northwest, the destination of many family vacations when Annie was a teenager.<br />   <br /> Once there, Annie begins to restore her broken spirit, thanks in part to the folks she meets: a local painter, Keaton, whose large frame is equal to his big heart—and who helps Annie fix up her rental cottage by the sea; Mellie, the reclusive, prickly landlord Annie is determined to befriend; and Britt, a teenager with a terrible secret. But it is Keaton to whom Annie feels most drawn. His quiet, peaceful nature offers her both comfort and reprieve from her grief, and the two begin to grow closer.<br /><br /> Then events threaten to undo the idyll Annie has come to enjoy. And when the opportunity of a lifetime lands in her lap, she is torn between the excitement of a new journey toward success and the safe and secure arms of the haven—and the man—she’s come to call home.<br /><br /> In this heartwarming tale, Annie finds that the surest way to fix what is damaged within is to help others rise above their pain and find a way to heal.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Cottage by the Sea</i><br /></b><br />“Macomber never disappoints. Tears and laughter abound in this story of loss and healing that will wrap you up and pull you in; readers will finish it in one sitting.”<b>—<i>Library Journal</i> (starred review) </b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “Macomber’s story of tragedy and triumph is emotionally engaging from the outset and ends with a satisfying conclusion. Readers will be most taken by the characters, particularly Annie, a heartwarming lead who bolsters the novel.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i></b>

<b>A decadent rock star. A deeply religious radio host. A disgraced scientist. And a teenage girl who may be the world’s last hope. From the mind of Chuck Wendig comes “a magnum opus . . . a story about survival that’s not just about you and me, but all of us, together” (<i>Kirkus Reviews</i>,<i> </i>starred review).</b><br /><br /> Shana wakes up one morning to discover her little sister in the grip of a strange malady. She appears to be sleepwalking. She cannot talk and cannot be woken up. And she is heading with inexorable determination to a destination that only she knows. But Shana and her sister are not alone. Soon they are joined by a flock of sleepwalkers from across America, on the same mysterious journey. And like Shana, there are other “shepherds” who follow the flock to protect their friends and family on the long dark road ahead.<br /><br />For as the sleepwalking phenomenon awakens terror and violence in America, the real danger may not be the epidemic but the fear of it. With society collapsing all around them—and an ultraviolent militia threatening to exterminate them—the fate of the sleepwalkers depends on unraveling the mystery behind the epidemic. The terrifying secret will either tear the nation apart—or bring the survivors together to remake a shattered world.<br /><br /><b>Advance praise for <i>Wanderers</i><br /><br /></b> “This career-defining epic deserves its inevitable comparisons to Stephen King’s <i>The Stand</i>.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i> (starred review)</b><br /><br /> “A suspenseful, twisty, satisfying, surprising, thought-provoking epic.”<b>—Harlan Coben,<i> </i>#1<i> New York Times </i>bestselling author of<i> Run Away</i></b><br /><br /> “A true tour de force.”<b>—Erin Morgenstern, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Night Circus</i><br /></b><br /> “A masterpiece with prose as sharp and heartbreaking as <i>Station Eleven</i>.”<b>—Peng Shepherd, author of <i>The Book of M</i></b><br /><br /> “A magnum opus . . . It reminded me of Stephen King’s <i>The Stand—</i>but dare I say, this story is even better.”<b>—James Rollins, #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Crucible </i>  </b><br /><br /> “An inventive, fierce, uncompromising, stay-up-way-past-bedtime masterwork.<i>”</i><b>—Paul Tremblay, author of <i>A Head Full of Ghosts</i> and <i>The Cabin at the End of the World</i> </b><br /><br />“An American epic for these times.”<b>—Charles Soule, author of <i>The Oracle Year</i></b>

Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III and Francesca Leandra Solomon were meant to be. They were so in love that everybody prayed for what they had.<br /><br />Everything was glorious.

Two years was a piece of cake. She’d finish her schooling and wait for him. And when he finally returned home, they would marry.<br /><br />But two months into Luca’s deployment, the unthinkable happens, and Frankie is left alone and heartbroken, knowing that she’ll have to face the rest of life without Luca at her side.<br /><br />***<br /><br />Fast forward two years, and Frankie is exactly where her fiancé’s father left her, in a pit of despair that she has no hope of ever finding her way out of.<br /><br />She lives life one second at a time, depressed and alone, hoping tomorrow won’t hurt like today.<br /><br />She finds a job, moves, and hopes that the nightmares won’t swallow her whole.<br /><br />But just as she thinks that she’s getting better, one of her nightmares walks through the doors of her ER, and that nightmare has a name.<br /><br />Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III.
