Sent to a "therapeutic community" for autism at the age of eleven, Todd Aaron, now in his fifties, has spent most of his life at Payton Living Center. A joyous man who rereads the encyclopedia compulsively, Todd's life is thrown into disarray by the arrival of both a new roommate and a menacing new staffer. His equilibrium is further worsened by Martine, a new resident who takes a romantic interest in Todd and encourages him to go off his meds to feel "normal" again. Undone by these pressures, Todd attempts an escape to return "home" to his younger brother and to a childhood that now inhabits only his dreams. A deeply moving portrayal of autism from the author of The Face Thief (2012).
Come Away with Me
One minute, Tegan Lawson has everything she could hope for: an adoring husband, Gabe, and a baby on the way. The next, a patch of black ice causes a devastating accident that will change her life in ways she never could have imagined. Tegan is consumed by grief--not to mention her anger toward Gabe, who was driving the night of the crash. But just when she thinks she's hit rock bottom, Gabe reminds her of their Jar of Spontaneity, a collection of their dream destinations and experiences, and so begins an adventure of a lifetime. From Thailand to Italy to Hawaii, Tegan and Gabe embark on a journey to escape tragedy and search for forgiveness. A lovely and moving debut.
An investigator for a Florida-based Death Row defense firm, Markus Novak has been sent to Garrison, Indiana to probe the murder of Sarah Martin ten years ago. Ridley Barnes--the man suspected of her death but never charged--has asked the firm to look into the case. Ten years ago, Sarah disappeared inside an elaborate cave system beneath rural farmland. Days later, Ridley emerged carrying her body. He has always insisted that he has no memory of where--or how--he found Sarah. Ridley claims he wants answers, but what is he really up to? And why are the locals so hostile to Markus? Superb storytelling from the always splendid Koryta (Those Who Wish Me Dead, 2014).

The Orpheus Clock: The Search for My Family's Art Treasures Stolen by the Nazis
Goodman’s Jewish grandparents (the Gutmanns, as they were known then) became one of Germany’s most powerful banking families until they perished in the concentration camps. When Goodman’s father died, he discovered that his grandparents’ extensive art collection, including works by Degas and Renoir, was stolen by the Nazis. Some pieces went directly to Hitler, others were smuggled to Switzerland and resold to collectors and dealers, while others were recovered by Allied forces only to be stolen once again. Goodman has recovered numerous treasures through painstaking detective work. An absorbing debut for fans of The Monuments Men (2009).
