Rebecca BY Daphne Du Maurier

the classic tale of suspense

“Last Night I Dreamt I Went To Manderley Again…  So the second Mrs. Maxim de Winter remembers the chilling events that led her down the turning drive, past the beeches, white and naked, to Manderley, the isolated gray stone manse on the windswept Cornish coast. With a husband she barely knows, the young bride is inexorably drawn into the life of the first Mrs. de Winter, the beautiful Rebecca, dead but never forgotten…her suite of rooms never touched, her clothes ready to be worn, her servant — the sinister Mrs. Danvers — still loyal. And as an eerie presentiment of evil tightens around her heart, the second Mrs. de Winter begins her search for the real fate of Rebecca and for the secrets of Manderley…”

This month’s selection:

Wild BY Cheryl Strayed

the #1 New York Times bestselling memoir

“At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.”

The Tiger’s Wife BY Téa Obreht

the New York Times bestseller

“In a Balkan country mending from war, Natalia, a young doctor, is compelled to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding her beloved grandfather’s recent death. Searching for clues, she turns to his worn copy of The Jungle Book and the stories he told her of his encounters with “the deathless man,” whose appearances coincide with catastrophe and who may hold the key to all the stories that ensnare Natalia. But most extraordinary of all is the story her grandfather never told her—the legend of the tiger’s wife.”
