<b>#1聽<i>New York Times</i>聽Bestseller<br />More than 4 million copies sold<br />A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick<br /><br />"I can't even express how much I love this book! I didn't want this story to end!"--Reese Witherspoon<br /><br />"Painfully beautiful."--<i>The New York Times Book Review<br /></i></b><br />For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.<br /><br /><i>Where the Crawdads Sing</i>聽is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

<p><strong>A Read with Jenna <em>Today</em> Show Book Club Pick!</strong></p><p><strong>From the </strong><em><strong>New York Times</strong></em><strong>聽bestselling author of </strong><em><strong>Commonwealth</strong></em><strong> and </strong><em><strong>State of Wonder</strong></em><strong>, comes Ann Patchett鈥檚 most powerful novel to date: a richly moving story that explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go. </strong><em><strong>The Dutch House</strong></em><strong> is the story of a paradise lost, a tour de force that digs deeply into questions of inheritance, love and forgiveness, of how we want to see ourselves and of who we really are.</strong></p><p>At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves.</p><p>The story is told by Cyril鈥檚 son Danny, as he and his older sister, the brilliantly acerbic and self-assured Maeve, are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another. It is this unshakeable bond between them that both saves their lives and thwarts their futures.</p><p>Set over the course of five decades, <em>The Dutch House</em> is a dark fairy tale about two smart people who cannot overcome their past. Despite every outward sign of success, Danny and Maeve are only truly comfortable when they鈥檙e together. Throughout their lives they return to the well-worn story of what they鈥檝e lost with humor and rage. But when at last they鈥檙e forced to confront the people who left them behind, the relationship between an indulged brother and his ever-protective sister is finally tested.</p>

They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky.聽<br /><br />What happens to them--and to the men they love--becomes an unforgettable drama of loyalty, justice, humanity and passion. These heroic women refuse to be cowed by men or by convention. And though they face all kinds of dangers in a landscape that is at times breathtakingly beautiful, at others brutal, they鈥檙e committed to their job: bringing books to people who have never had any, arming them with facts that will change their lives.<br /><br />Based on a true story rooted in America鈥檚 past, <i>The Giver of Stars</i> is unparalleled in its scope and epic in its storytelling. Funny, heartbreaking, enthralling, it is destined to become a modern classic--a richly rewarding novel of women鈥檚 friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.聽<br /><br /><b>SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE!</b>

<b>FBI Agent Atlee Pine returns to her Georgia hometown to investigate her twin sister's abduction, only to encounter a serial killer in this #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling thriller.</b><b><br /></b>FBI Agent Atlee Pine's life was never the same after her twin sister Mercy was kidnapped--and likely killed--thirty years ago. After a lifetime of torturous uncertainty, Atlee's unresolved anger finally gets the better of her on the job, and she finds she has to deal with the demons of her past if she wants to remain with the FBI.<br /><br /> Atlee and her assistant Carol Blum head back to Atlee's rural hometown in Georgia to see what they can uncover about the traumatic night Mercy was taken and Pine was almost killed. But soon after Atlee begins her investigation, a local woman is found ritualistically murdered, her face covered with a wedding veil--and the first killing is quickly followed by a second bizarre murder.<br /><br /> Atlee is determined to continue her search for answers, but now she must also set her sights on finding a potential serial killer before another victim is claimed. But in a small town full of secrets--some of which could answer the questions that have plagued Atlee her entire life--digging deeper into the past could be more dangerous than she realizes . . . <br /><br />
