In the fast-paced psychological thriller traditions of Gillian Flynn, Jessica Knoll, and Liane Moriarty, Edgar Award nominated-author Kathryn Haines Miller (The Girl Is Murder) spins an engrossing tale of what might be the worst birthday ever. Helen’s life is simple. She has a job. She has a boyfriend. She has her weekly NA meetings. No drugs, no drinking, no sex, not even any caffeine—not anymore. Because Helen knows this: once you’re an addict, you’re always an addict. There is no such thing as recovered. And on her thirtieth birthday, the stability she’s cobbled together for herself will vanish. A call from the police, a body found, a dead woman with Helen’s name in her back pocket—it’s all so hard to believe. But then when Helen finds out the victim was her childhood best friend, a girl who went missing in high school, it’s too much. Helen knows she has to stick to the routine that keeps her in control, and with the way the police are eyeing her for this, she’s worried about looking suspicious. But the unfortunate reemergence of her old friend—and the mysteries that always surrounded her—means Helen can trust no one, not even herself.

Ralph is a traveler. He has his own plane … or so he thought. Astral traveler Ralph didn't really think about whether the astral plane was his own until the girl from Mayfair Towers approached him with her mystery. He told me his story. Ralph explained that he thought this would be a simple investigation, perhaps impressing the lovely girl from Mayfair Towers, by using his secret mystic gift. An experienced and knowledgeable astral adversary, however, transformed this simple investigation. Unlike this adversary, Chong, Ralph was essentially a novice in other dimensions. Now, beyond the investigation, Ralph was involved in a paranormal struggle. Ralph had other complications in his life, female complications. He had to balance his male awkwardness, sensuality, knowledge and secrets with three attractive females. Paranormal worlds, astral worlds, OOBE planes and dimensions, I’m sure Ralph and Chong know of these but for me, I can only ask, from what dimensional world was Ralph telling me this story? Wherever it is that Ralph exists now, how did he manage?

Lileon is a beautiful land that bursts forth in vivid, exceptional colors. Tall, vibrant, jewel-like grass dances in a sparkling wind against an azure sky. The people of Lileon live simple, peaceful lives that were made all the more calm when they rejected the technology that once defined them. But the Lileons are not alone. Walking among them are the Shadow People, black-and-white apparitions who move in and out of Lileon. Shimmering windows provide the only glimpses between the worlds—and in an instant—one of these portals will change everything the people of both worlds believe. Like the rest of his people, Cullen Fairchild, the son of Reia Richard Fairchild, the ruler of Lileon, knows nothing of the Shadow People. When he locks eyes with a beautiful woman through one of the ephemeral portals, he is astonished and intrigued. Katherine Carr, the woman from another world, is equally intrigued by her glimpse of the handsome blond man who keeps appearing and disappearing. He seems familiar somehow. They should never have met, let alone fallen in love, but now nothing will keep the lovers apart. They seemed destined for one another, but when Cullen tells Kat of Lileon, it’s too much for her to believe. He’s from a different world? Literally? Cullen’s attention is distracted by the plotting of his uncle Emile, who dreams of making his brother, Richard, pay for past crimes. The waiting over, Emile puts his plan into action. In the end, will Kat believe Cullen? Will Cullen be able to stop Emile from taking over not only Lileon but Kat’s world as well? Will the invisible boundary between their worlds keep Cullen and Kat together—or keep them apart?

Sometimes, life plays little jokes. For Jeannette McDonald, growing up in a small town in West Virginia in the 1950s, life had three particular jokes in mind: naming her after a famous movie star, giving her a birthday just after Valentine’s Day, and letting her grow up on a street named Gladden—a place as far from glad as Jeannette was from being a movie star. Growing up is supposed to be a time of wonder and joy. For the girl on Gladden Street, the wonder was in discovering that when life plays jokes, anything is possible if you keep a healthy attitude. Ms. McDonald relates that some of life’s harshest realities can lead to new awakenings and a better life. Peppered with a series of brief, episodic, coming-of-age vignettes that illustrate Ms. McDonald’s life and much of the American landscape of the 1950s, The Girl from Gladden Street provides a reminder that some of our most valuable lessons come from events experienced during the most impressionable times of life.

It has taken me a long time to piece all this together. Memories come not like heavy rain but the drops falling from leaves after it. There were elements missing. At last I knew I would not be whole until I found them... June Cohen was born on Human Street in 1929. Her street ran through the centre of Krugersdorp, a mining town near Johannesburg where June's father, Laurie, a doctor, and his wife of Lithuanian Jewish heritage, had decided to establish themselves thirty years on from the family's crossing to South Africa. June was named after the month she was born in. In the wake of his mother's death, New York Times columnist Roger Cohen embarks on a compassionate and sensitive portrait of the journeys made by both his maternal and paternal family, exploring the stories that have filtered through to him since childhood. Told through personal letters and collective memories, Cohen follows his family from Lithuania to South Africa, England, the United States and Israel. He illuminates the uneasy resonance of the racism his relatives witnessed living in apartheid-era South Africa and explores the pervasive sense of 'otherness' that originated from his Jewish heritage of persecution and from the repeated loss that accompanied his forebears' multiple migrations. And through this, he begins to understand better the manic depression that has permeated his family and that plagued his mother until her last moments. A sweeping family story spanning continents, families and great swathes of history, Roger Cohen's deeply personal examination of Jewish identity is a tale of displacement and remembrance, an account of suicide and resilience, a meditation on identity and belonging, a classic for our times.
