The Replacement Wife by Darby Kane
Elisa Wright is a mom and wife, living a nice, quiet life in a nice, quiet town. She’s also convinced her brother-in-law is a murderer. Josh has one dead wife and one missing fiancée, and though he grieved for them he starts dating someone new. Elisa fears for that woman’s safety, and she desperately wants to know what happened to her friend, Josh’s missing fiancée.
Searching for clues means investigating her own family. And she doesn’t like what she finds. A laptop filled with incriminating information. Other women. But when Elisa becomes friends with Josh’s new girlfriend and starts to question things she thinks are true, Elisa wonders if the memories of a horrible incident a year ago have finally pushed her over the edge and Josh is really innocent.
Find Your Unicorn Space by Eve Rodsky
In her acclaimed New York Times bestseller Fair Play, Eve Rodsky urged women to rebalance their domestic responsibilities and reclaim time for themselves. Her book started a national conversation and launched a movement toward greater equality on the home front…and then quarantine hit, and life as we knew it was upended. Now all of us are faced with an even more pressing question: how can we—even in the bleakest days of working-from-home, remote-schooling, and too-much-togetherness—carve out a little time for ourselves?
This personal time—what Rodsky calls Unicorn Space, what makes us interesting—isn’t just a luxury, she explains. The research is clear that it’s a necessity for our mental health, our physical well-being, and our very sense of self. But how do we find any time for ourselves in a moment when we have less autonomy than we’ve ever had? And what do we do with that freedom when we actually get it? Find Your Unicorn Space is a practical program for reclaiming (or discovering for the first time) the natural gifts, interests, and talents that make you uniquely you.
Once Upon a Time We Ate Animals by Roanne van Voorst and Scott Emblen-Jarrett
Though increasing numbers of people know that eating meat is detrimental to our planet’s health, many still can’t be convinced to give up eating meat. But how can we change behavior when common arguments and information aren’t working?
Acclaimed anthropologist Roanne Van Voorst changes the dialogue. In Once Upon a Time We Ate Animals, she shifts the focus from the present looking forward to the future looking back—imagining a world in which most no longer use animals for food, clothing, or other items. By shifting the viewpoint, she offers a clear and compelling vision of what it means to live in a world without meat.
