 You will assume you are listening to a story about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement - a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle. Assume nothing.

 The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
 By Mary Ann Shaffer
 
 pic
 
 January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb…. As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends—and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society—born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island—boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all.
 Mrs. Neath-Foster
 
 The President Is Missing
 By Bill Clinton & James Patterson

 The White House is the home of the President of the United States, the most guarded, monitored, closely watched person in the world. So how could a U.S. president vanish without a trace? And why would he choose to do so?

 Splendid Slippers
 By Beverly Jackson
 
 slippers
 
 For a thousand years, Chinese mothers tightly bound the feet of their daughters and encased them in tiny, exquisitely embroidered slippers. How and why did this torturous tradition evolve and continue into the 20th century? Beverley Jackson's vast collection of photographs and a prized collection of "splendid slippers" create a uniquely poignant and evocative portrait of Chinese culture.
