The Best Hanukkah Ever by Barbara Diamond Goldin

The Knoodle family is about to celebrate Hanukkah. They discuss what the rabbi has told them: "It is hard to give the perfect gift, one that will be treasured forever." What did the rabbi mean? Thinking they’re to give one another a gift they’d really love to have themselves, they pick names from a hat. Bubby Sadie gives Little Yekl a pickle barrel. Mama Pearl gives Papa Jack a straw hat with yellow daisies—something she has wanted her whole life! And so it goes. No one is happy...until the rabbi arrives and with Little Yekl’s help, straightens things out. Then they all celebrate "the best Hanukkah ever!" Avi Katz’s illustrations rendered in digital media bring this endearing story about holiday miscommunication to a proper conclusion.

Hidden Valley Road by Robert Kolker

*EARLY GALLEY GIVEAWAY*

“An extraordinary case study and tour de force of reporting.”—Sylvia Nasar, author of A BEAUTIFUL MIND

ABOUT HIDDEN VALLEY ROAD:
The heartrending story of a midcentury American family with twelve children, six of them diagnosed with schizophrenia, that became science's great hope in the quest to understand the disease.

What took place inside the house on Hidden Valley Road was so extraordinary that the Galvins became one of the first families to be studied by the National Institute of Mental Health. Their story offers a shadow history of the science of schizophrenia, from the era of institutionalization, lobotomy, and the schizophrenogenic mother to the search for genetic markers for the disease, always amid profound disagreements about the nature of the illness itself. And unbeknownst to the Galvins, samples of their DNA informed decades of genetic research that continues today, offering paths to treatment, prediction, and even eradication of the disease for future generations.

With clarity and compassion, bestselling and award-winning author Robert Kolker uncovers one family's unforgettable legacy of suffering, love, and hope.

The Secret Wife of Aaron Burr by Susan Holloway Scott

Enter for your chance to win a SIGNED copy of THE SECRET WIFE OF AARON BURR!

Inspired by a woman and events forgotten by history, bestselling author Susan Holloway Scott weaves together carefully researched fact and fiction to tell the story of Mary Emmons, and the place she held in the life—and the heart—of the notorious Aaron Burr.

He was a hero of the Revolution, a brilliant politician, lawyer, and very nearly president; a skillful survivor in a raw new country filled with constantly shifting loyalties. Today Aaron Burr is remembered more for the fatal duel that killed rival Alexander Hamilton. But long before that single shot destroyed Burr’s political career, there were other dark whispers about him: that he was untrustworthy, a libertine, a man unafraid of claiming whatever he believed should be his.

Sold into slavery as a child in India, Mary Emmons was brought to an America torn by war. Toughened by the experiences of her young life, Mary is intelligent, resourceful, and strong. She quickly gains the trust of her new mistress, Theodosia Prevost, and becomes indispensable in a complicated household filled with intrigue—especially when the now-widowed Theodosia marries Colonel Aaron Burr. As Theodosia sickens with the fatal disease that will finally kill her, Mary and Burr are drawn together into a private world of power and passion, and a secret, tangled union that would have shocked the nation...

Scourge of the Silver Wings by Juho Pohjalainen

I have a few extra printed copies of Scourge of the Silver Wings, a true underdog fantasy story, lying around. Do you want one? You can read it at night under your covers, with a flashlight!

A small and twitchy stranger arrives to a naval trading port. He keeps to himself at first, but can (when pushed) spin an impressive and likely untrue tale of fantastic and bizarre naval voyages. Telling this tale in a bar corner should make for a reasonable break, and a break is what he now wants.

But the town is a stage for an ideological war about to turn hot, and both sides would much like Peal to join their ranks and help them achieve total dominion over the region. They've seen through Peal's innocent disguise, just enough to realize he is more than he seems and would make for an asset... yet not nearly enough to understand that this might be a very, very bad idea.

When his hand is forced, Peal will make the survivors regret their impertinence - but he may also accumulate a few fresh regrets of his own. Far more is at stake here than material wealth or glory.

Participate in the giveaway to see how he fares - you've nothing at all to lose!

If You Tell by Gregg Olsen

#1 New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen’s shocking and empowering true-crime story of three sisters determined to survive their mother’s house of horrors.

After more than a decade, when sisters Nikki, Sami, and Tori Knotek hear the word mom, it claws like an eagle’s talons, triggering memories that have been their secret since childhood. Until now.

For years, behind the closed doors of their farmhouse in Raymond, Washington, their sadistic mother, Shelly, subjected her girls to unimaginable abuse, degradation, torture, and psychic terrors. Through it all, Nikki, Sami, and Tori developed a defiant bond that made them far less vulnerable than Shelly imagined. Even as others were drawn into their mother’s dark and perverse web, the sisters found the strength and courage to escape an escalating nightmare that culminated in multiple murders.

Harrowing and heartrending, If You Tell is a survivor’s story of absolute evil—and the freedom and justice that Nikki, Sami, and Tori risked their lives to fight for. Sisters forever, victims no more, they found a light in the darkness that made them the resilient women they are today—loving, loved, and moving on.
