Out of the Silence by Eduardo Strauch

A personal story of survival, hope, and spiritual awakening in the face of unspeakable tragedy.

It’s the unfathomable modern legend that has become a testament to the resilience of the human spirit: the 1972 Andes plane crash and the Uruguayan rugby teammates who suffered seventy-two days among the dead and dying. It was a harrowing test of endurance on a snowbound cordillera that ended in a miraculous rescue. Now comes the unflinching and emotional true story by one of the men who found his way home.

Four decades after the tragedy, a climber discovered survivor Eduardo Strauch’s wallet near the memorialized crash site and returned it to him. It was a gesture that compelled Strauch to finally “break the silence of the mountains.”

In this revelatory and rewarding memoir, Strauch withholds nothing as he reveals the truth behind the life-changing events that challenged him physically and tested him spiritually, but would never destroy him. In revisiting the horror story we thought we knew, Strauch shares the lessons gleaned from far outside the realm of rational learning: how surviving on the mountain, in the face of its fierce, unforgiving power and desolate beauty, forever altered his perception of love, friendship, death, fear, loss, and hope.

I'll Never Tell by Catherine McKenzie

Deeply buried secrets make for a disturbing family reunion in bestselling author Catherine McKenzie’s tantalizing novel of psychological suspense.

What happened to Amanda Holmes?

Twenty years ago, she was found bludgeoned in a rowboat at the MacAllister family’s Camp Macaw. No one was ever charged with the crime.

Now, after their parents’ sudden deaths, the MacAllister siblings return to camp to read the will and decide what to do with the prime real estate the camp occupies. Ryan needs to sell. Margaux hasn’t made up her mind. Mary believes in leaving well enough alone. Kate and Liddie—the twins—have opposing views. And Sean Booth, the groundskeeper, just hopes he still has a home when all is said and done.

But it’s more complicated than a simple vote. The will stipulates that until they unravel the mystery of what happened to Amanda, they can’t settle the estate. Any one of them could have done it, and each one is holding a piece of the puzzle. Will they work together to finally discover the truth, or will their secrets finally tear the family apart?

Twelve Unending Summers by Cholet Kelly Josue

At age sixteen, Cholet Josué arrived on the shores of Miami in a Haitian wooden boat—and immediately put the past behind him.

"...an engrossing human triumph and a genuine American story." —Joel Dreyfuss, journalist and correspondent

But more than two decades after landing in Miami, the elusive question of identity pursues Cholet, forcing him to confront a difficult truth: the cultures that formed him have each indelibly stamped his soul.

*Bahamian. Haitian. American. Where can I fully belong?*

Courageously, he dismantles his own story to uncover a way to unashamedly, unabashedly fit in with three different worlds while belonging to none.

Three Women by Lisa Taddeo

Enter to win an early finished copy of the book Elizabeth Gilbert hailed as "a nonfiction literary masterpiece" and Jojo Moyes called "as unputdownable as the most page-turning fiction."

Desire: it thrills us and torments us, it controls our thoughts, destroys our lives, and it’s all we live for. Yet we almost never speak of it. And as a buried force in our lives, desire remains largely unexplored—until now. Over the past eight years, journalist Lisa Taddeo has driven across the country six times to embed herself with ordinary women from different regions and backgrounds. The result, Three Women, is the deepest nonfiction portrait of desire ever written and one of the most anticipated books of the year.

By delving into the sex lives of three ordinary women—a housewife in a loveless marriage, a glamorous entrepreneur whose husband’s needs are increasingly at odds with her own, and a high school student who has an alleged affair with an esteemed teacher—Lisa Taddeo lays bare the longing, anticipation, confusion, and despair that go hand in hand with desire, love, sex, and heartbreak. Told with astonishing frankness and immediacy, we anticipate that Three Women will be the most talked-about book of the summer—powerful, tantalizing, timely, and compelling.

“I literally could not put it down.” —Gwyneth Paltrow on Instagram

"Nothing short of revolutionary.” —Stephanie Danler

"Riveting, assured, and scorchingly original." —Dave Eggers
