“A beautiful, heart-breaking gem of a novel written just the way I like them,” says Tatiana de Rosnay, international bestselling author of Sarah’s Key and A Secret Kept, “with the past coming back to haunt the present, endearing heroines and a sunny, hopeful ending. You’ll wolf it up in one delicious gulp.” Fans of historical fiction, romance, and page-turning novels will love Sarah McCoy’s The Baker’s Daughter.
“I knew very little of Queen Margaret or King Malcolm and this was a great introduction,” writes Siobian at The Owl Bookmark Blog. “Reading Susan Fraser King’s Queen Hereafter, it was easy to see why the Catholic church made Margaret a saint. Equally moving to me was the love between her and Malcolm. The scenes of them together were so sweet and I enjoyed watching her go from indifference toward the king to bliss. Overall, I liked this book and learned a lot about Scotland and its heritage.”
In February 2011, Read It Forward introduced you to Taylor Stevens and her blockbuster debut The Informationist. With The Innocent, Taylor returns with another page-turning thriller featuring the fearless Vanessa Michael Munroe. Tautly written, brilliantly paced, and with the same evocation of the exotic combined with chilling violence that made The Informationist such a success, The Innocent confirms Taylor Stevens’ reputation as a thriller writer of the first rank.
Did you know that at least one-third of the people you know are introverts? Quiet shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so. Susan Cain charts the rise of “the extrovert ideal” over the twentieth century, explores its far-reaching effects, and shows us how to empower an introverted child and how companies can harness the natural talents of introverts. This extraordinary book has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves. Check out what authors like Gretchen Rubin, Andrew Weil, and Naomi Wolf are saying, take the Quiet Quiz, read the Quiet Manifesto, learn about famous introverts in history, get advice on parenting introverted kids, and enjoy a Q&A with author Susan Cain.
