I Want You to Know We're Still Here, a poignant memoir by Esther Safran Foer, is her account of growing up in the shadow of the Holocaust, a tragedy that loomed in the backdrop of daily life, felt but never discussed. When Foer learns that her father had a previous wife and daughter, both killed in the Holocaust, she travels to the Ukraine, armed with only a black-and-white photo and hand-drawn map, determined to find the shtetl where her father hid to survive during the war.

Paulette Jiles, the critically acclaimed, bestselling author of News of the World and Enemy Women, returns to Texas in this atmospheric story.

"I am Ana. I was the wife of Jesus." So begins the new novel from Sue
Monk Kidd
, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Life of Bees and The Invention of Wings. The Book of Longings is an extraordinary story set in the first century about a woman who finds her voice and her destiny in a time of great despair and great hope. Raised in a wealthy family, Ana is rebellious and ambitious, a seeker with a brilliant, curious mind and a daring spirit. Defying the expectations placed on women, she engages in furtive scholarly pursuits and writes secret narratives about neglected and silenced women. When she meets the 18-year-old Jesus, each is drawn to and enriched by the other's spiritual and philosophical ideas. He becomes a floodgate for her intellect, but also awakens her heart. Sue Monk Kidd says, "I wanted to portray Jesus as fully human. Writing from a novelist's perspective and not a religious one, I was drawn to his humanity, which can often be overlooked. Ana wandered into my imagination and I couldn't ignore her."

Erik Larson, master of narrative nonfiction, delivers The Splendid and the Vile, a compelling portrait of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz. Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people "the art of being fearless." Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports, Larson provides a new lens on London's darkest year, transporting readers to a time of true leadership, when-in the face of unrelenting horror-Churchill's eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together. Larson's bestselling books include The Devil in the White City and In the Garden of Beasts.
