Motherland: A Novel (affiliate link)
Inspired by the stories told by her father about his German childhood and letters between her grandparents that were hidden in an attic wall for fifty years, Motherland is a novel that attempts to reckon with the paradox of the author’s father—a product of her grandparents’ fiercely protective love—and their status as passive Nazi–sympathizers known as Mitläufer.
At the center of Motherland lies the Kappus family: Frank is a reconstructive surgeon who lost his beloved wife in childbirth. Two months later, just before being drafted into medical military service, Frank marries a young woman charged with looking after the surviving baby and his two grieving sons. Alone in the house, Liesl attempts to keep the children fed with dwindling food supplies, safe from the constant Allied air attacks and the tides of desperate refugees flooding their town. When one child begins to mentally unravel, Liesl must discover the source of the boy’s infirmity or lose him forever to Hadamar, the infamous hospital for “unfit” children.
Grow Your Own Herbs: The 40 Best Culinary Varieties for Home Gardens (affiliate link)
In First to Fly, lauded historian Charles Bracelen Flood draws on rarely seen primary sources to tell the story of the daredevil Americans of the Lafayette Escadrille, who flew in French planes, wore French uniforms, and showed the world an American brand of heroism before the United States entered the Great War.
As citizens of a neutral nation from 1914 to early 1917, Americans were prohibited from serving in a foreign army, but many brave young souls soon made their way into European battle zones. It was partly from the ranks of the French Foreign Legion, and with the sponsorship of an expat American surgeon and a Vanderbilt, that the Lafayette Escadrille was formed in 1916 as the first and only all-American squadron in the French Air Service.
Dead Inside: A True Story (affiliate link)
I never was a badass. Or a slut, a junkie, or a stoner, like they told me I was. I was just a kid looking for something good, something that felt like love. I was a wannabe in a Levi’s jean jacket. Anybody could see that. Except my mother. And the staff at Straight.
I was thirteen when I ran away from my abusive home. After a month in a shelter for kids–the best month of my childhood–my mother heard about Princess Di and First Lady Nancy Reagan’s visit to this place that was working miracles with troubled teens. Straight Inc., it was called.
Straight described itself as a drug rehab, a “direction for youth.” Strictly false advertising. An accurate description came from the ACLU, which called it “A concentration camp for throwaway teens.” Inside the windowless warehouse, Straight used bizarre and intimidating methods to “treat” us; to turn us into the type of kids our parents wanted.

Their love inspired a legend, but first, it will ignite a war in this gender-swapped Hades and Persephone retelling.

But Hades is destined for a dark and terrible greatness, and the Underworld welcomes her with open arms. Hell has finally found its god.
Zeus’ betrayal will not go unpunished. Hades’ disgrace will have its vengeance, but destiny intervenes, and Hades is faced with choosing between revenge and an unexpected love.
