Readers won't soon forget the Philadelphia Blessings and their big-hearted family. This resonant, deft debut-which reminds us of Alice McDermott's work--delivers an unforgettable portrait of an Irish-American family as the bonds between them are tested, fractured and realigned by life.
Ruby Bell was a constant reminder of what could befall a woman whose shoe heels got too high. East Texas in 1974 is a hard enough place to live - even for the faithful who call it home -- but it's far harder to forget in this unforgettable debut written with the weight of folklore.
A kidnapped child, returned safely to his family - a happy ending. But what if that happy ending is illusory? Our selection committee readers are still talking about this engrossing, deeply thoughtful story about family mythology and identity - a story that reminds us of Richard Russo's novels.

We all need bumblebees. With the verve and wit of Bill Bryson, UK-based biology professor and conservationist Dave Goulson explains exactly how and why in this sparkling memoir. This is a terrific gift for gardeners or foodies, parents or graduates, as well as naturalists and fans of great writing.
This engaging debut is as much a study of a changing community and all its inhabitants -- human and animal --as it is a biography of a fearless, self-taught scientist (who knows more about sea turtles than most experts) and the lengths she'll go to protect what she believes in.
