A Year and a Day: A Novel (affiliate link)
Fifteen-year-old Alice dreams of her first kiss, has sleepovers, auditions for Our Town, and tries to pass high school biology. It’s 1975, and at first look, her life would seem to be normal and unexceptional. But in the world that Leslie Pietrzyk paints, every moment she chronicles is revealed through the kaleidoscope of loss, stained by the fact that Alice’s mother, without warning, note, or apology, deliberately parks her car on the railroad tracks, in the path of an oncoming train.
In the emotional year that follows, Alice and her older brother find themselves in the care of their great aunt, forced to cope and move forward. Lonely and confused, Alice absorbs herself in her mother Annette’s familiar rituals, trying to recapture their connection — only to be stunned by the sound of her mother’s voice speaking to her, engaging Alice in “conversations” and offering some insight into the life that she had led, beyond her role as Alice’s mother.

Battle of the Bulge: A Guide to Modeling the Battle (affiliate link)
The Battle of the Bulge was the perfect storm for the Allies in late 1944; a tired army, overstretched supply lines, and poor intelligence on what was waiting on the other side of the hill. On 16th December, with almost complete surprise, the Germans launched their last major offensive in the West. Emerging from thick fog and through the dense woodland of the Ardennes nearly 500,000 German troops slammed into American lines.
For almost a week the Germans were able to make good ground, and the glory days of 1940 beckoned as they crushed all resistances before them, often with extreme cruelty. On Christmas Eve, the Germans had lost their initial advantage, the skies cleared and air support returned. For the next 3 weeks the battle hung in the balance. For the Americans the Battle of the Bulge would be the deadliest single battle of the Second World War.

In the age of digital footprints, is it possible to disappear? And how long would it take to notice someone is missing?
When his wife Maria is taken into hospital after a serious fall during a competitive run, Chris Morrison does what anyone would do in a crisis: he phones his family. His son Mikey answers the call, but his daughter Ruth doesn’t. She’s always been distant, often working abroad for long stretches and communicating via social media.
As Chris gets increasingly frustrated by Ruth’s lack of response, police investigations into Maria’s fall force him to answer some challenging questions. Why wasn’t Maria on the race route when she fell? Was she running after someone, or running from them?
A few uncomfortable certainties emerge: Maria and Mikey have been keeping things from Chris – and Ruth appears to have been lying to them all. But how many secrets can one family keep?
