THE DAUGHTERS by Adrienne Celt

BARBARA THE SLUT AND OTHER PEOPLE by Lauren Holmes

A fresh, honest, and darkly funny debut collection about family, friends, and lovers, and the flaws that make us most human.

MRS. SINCLAIR’S SUITCASE by Louise Walters

Roberta, a bibliophile works at The Old and New Bookshop in England. She discovers a letter inside her grandmother’s old suitcase that provides insight into her grandmother’s past and to the family’s history.

THE GIRL WHO SLEPT WITH GOD by Val Brelinski

A family’s world is upended when the oldest daughter returns from a missionary trip to Mexico and discovers she’s pregnant with—she believes—the child of God.
