Summary "Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years' experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she's been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene? Ruth hesitates before performing CPR and, as a result, is charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender, takes her case but gives unexpected advice: Kennedy insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. Conflicted by Kennedy's counsel, Ruth tries to keep life as normal as possible for her family--especially her teenage son--as the case becomes a media sensation. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each other's trust, and come to see that what they've been taught their whole lives about others--and themselves--might be wrong."--

Summary "A magnificently mordant reckoning with mortality by the great British novelist Francesca Stubbs has a very full life. A highly regarded expert on housing for the elderly who is herself getting on in age, she drives restlessly round England, which is 'her last love'. She wants to 'see it all before she dies'. Amid the professional conferences she attends, she fits in visits to old friends, brings home-cooked dinners to her ex-husband, texts her son, who is grieving over the sudden death of his girlfriend, and drops in on her daughter, a quirky young woman who lives in a floodplain in the West Country. The space between vitality and morality suddenly seems narrow, but Fran is not ready to settle yet, with a 'cat upon her knee'. She still prizes her 'frisson of autonomy', her belief in herself as a dynamic individual doing meaningful work in the world. This dark and glittering novel moves back and forth between an interconnected group of family and friends in England and a seemingly idyllic expat community in the Canary Islands. It is set against a backdrop of rising flood tides in Britain and the seismic fragility of the Canaries, where we also observe the flow of immigrants from an increasingly war-torn Middle East. With Margaret Drabble's characteristic wit and deceptively simple prose, The Dark Flood Rises enthralls, entertains, and asks existential questions in equal measure. Of course, there is undeniable truth in Francesca's insight: 'Old age, it's a fucking disaster!'"--

Summary The Great War is over. The Robots have won. The humans who survived have two choices--they can submit and serve the vicious rulers they created or be banished to the Reserve, a desolate, unforgiving landscape where it's a crime to be human. And the robots aren't content--following the orders of their soulless leader, they're planning to conquer humanity's last refuge. With nothing left to lose, Six, a feisty, determined young woman whose family was killed with the first shots of the war, is a rebel with a cause. On the run for her life after an attempted massacre, Six is determined to save humanity before the robots finish what the Great War started and wipe humans off the face of the earth, once and for all.

Summary "The original set of the 1925 production of The Phantom of the Opera still sits on the Universal lot in Hollywood. As legend has it, every time a crew has attempted to break it down, they've been met with freak accidents--as if some spirit still lingers in the old plywood and fading paint. Some say this spirit has manifested as a little girl that roams the lot after dark. She is waiting to tell the true ghost story behind the ones recorded on celluloid. It's a story that begins one hundred years ago--before Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff--with a German artist, his muse and the secret behind the birth of American horror. A young Maddie Ulm and her mother, cast out of their small German village due to her mother's dabbling in the occult, do their best to eke out a living. When Maddie is struck with the spanish flu, it's her mother's rituals that bring her back from death, but changed. Frozen at her young age and unable to die, Maddy fights for her place in the world. She starts to use her gifts as a sideshow attraction, dying and returning to life in increasingly elaborate ways. She quickly learns the value of her unique relationship with death, as she becomes involved in the nascent german film industry. Her talents are recognized, and she is invited to Hollywood, where she works with such greats as Lon Cheney and Boris Karloff, putting her mark on American Horror's foundational cinema, though her condition keeps her from achieving the credit and power she desires."--
