Summary

A debut novel for fans of The Lovely Bones: "An intriguing tale of love after death and an insightful look at the bereavement process." —Kirkus Reviews  “Today is my death anniversary. A year ago today I was still alive." Rachel, Max, and their daughter Ellie had the perfect life—until the night Rachel’s heart stopped beating. She was thirty-six. Just as her family can’t forget her, Rachel can’t quite let go of them either. As Max and Ellie work through their grief, Rachel struggles, too—with bemusement, anger, sadness, and regret—to come to terms with her death.   Caught in a place between worlds, with a family just within reach but so far away, Rachel watches as her husband, her daughter, and her own mother move from denial to acceptance. As time passes, as they settle back into their routines, and begin to smile again, Rachel fears that she’s fading from their lives…   This literary debut about remembrance—and becoming a memory—is “beautifully written and full of love” (Fern Britton).

    An extraordinary new novel by Samantha Harvey—whose books have been nominated for the Man Booker Prize, the Women’s Prize for Fiction (formerly the Orange Prize), and the Guardian First Book Award—The Western Wind is a riveting story of faith, guilt, and the freedom of confession.
    It’s 1491. In the small village of Oakham, its wealthiest and most industrious resident, Tom Newman, is swept away by the river during the early hours of Shrove Saturday. Was it murder, suicide, or an accident? Narrated from the perspective of local priest John Reve—patient shepherd to his wayward flock—a shadowy portrait of the community comes to light through its residents’ tortured revelations. As some of their darkest secrets are revealed, the intrigue of the unexplained death ripples through the congregation. But will Reve, a man with secrets of his own, discover what happened to Newman? And what will happen if he can’t?
    Written with timeless eloquence, steeped in the spiritual traditions of the Middle Ages, and brimming with propulsive suspense, The Western Wind finds Samantha Harvey at the pinnacle of her outstanding novelistic power.

    New York Times Bestseller: A sprawling epic of an American railroad dynasty’s “sensational intrigues and stormy struggles for power” (The New York Times Book Review).   Founded in Portersville, Pennsylvania, in the latter days of Andrew Jackson’s presidency, the Interstate is a small regional railroad with vast potential. Also, it is the birthright of Aaron deWitt’s sons: ruthless yet charming Rufus and stubborn, idealistic Stephen. When Stephen wins control of the Interstate, his victory starts a series of events that will roil the deWitt family for generations.   Over decades, the Interstate grows into an enterprise capable of shaping the future of the nation. Yet, both its triumphs and defeats sow the seeds of the deWitt family’s downfall. Brothers plot against brothers, sons demean fathers, wives betray husbands—all in pursuit of monumental power. Not even Cornelia, Rufus’s beautiful and cunning daughter, can ensure that the deWitt family name won’t disappear.   Spanning nearly a century, Never Victorious, Never Defeated is a brilliant dramatization of the lives of America’s robber barons and further proof that Taylor Caldwell “never falters when it comes to storytelling” (Publishers Weekly).

    The two novellas capture the sometimes-surreal tale of two young men nearly coming into their own in cinematic scenes. Being the works that preceded them all, this can’t not be part of every Murakami-lovers library.
