Move over, Charlotte Brontë. The authors of the New York Times bestselling My Lady Jane are back with a fantastic, romantic, comedic, entirely (but not really) faithful retelling of JANE EYRE. You may think you know the story. After a miserable childhood, penniless orphan Jane Eyre becomes a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester. Despite their significant age gap (yikes!) and his uneven temper (YIKES!) they fall in love—and Reader, she marries him. Or does she?

We have a different story to tell. There will be murder. Mayhem. Conspiracy. And of course, romance. Prepare for the most epic ghost hunt this side of Wuthering Heights, in which all is not as it seems, and a certain gentleman, Mr. Rochester, is hiding more than skeletons in his closets.

This is almost a love story. But it’s not as simple as that.
Ellis and Michael are twelve-year-old boys when they first become friends, and for a long time it is just the two of them, cycling the streets of Oxford, teaching themselves how to swim, discovering poetry, and dodging the fists of overbearing fathers. And then one day this closest of friendships grows into something more. But then we fast-forward a decade or so, to find that Ellis is married to Annie, and Michael is nowhere in sight. Which leads to the question: What happened in the years between?
With beautiful prose and characters that are so real they jump off the page, Tin Man is a love letter to human kindness and friendship, and to loss and living.

“Each spare sentence as delicate as a brushstroke; combined they paint a vibrant, emotional work that will leave you enthralled.”—Steven Rowley, author of Lily and the Octopus

In Patriot Number One, journalist Lauren Hilgers follows a dauntless family through a world hidden in plain sight as they navigate the process of creating a new life in America: a byzantine network of employment agencies and language schools, of underground asylum brokers and illegal dormitories that Flushing’s Chinese community relies on for survival. As the irrepressibly opinionated Zhuang and the more pragmatic Little Yan pursue legal status and struggle to reunite with their son. Tang, a democracy activist who was caught up in the Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989, is still dedicated to his cause after more than a decade in exile. Karen, a college graduate whose mother imagined a bold American life for her, works part-time in a nail salon as she attends vocational school, and refuses to look backward. With a novelist’s eye for character and detail, Hilgers captures the joys and indignities of building a life in a new country—and the stubborn allure of the American dream.

ANATOMY OF A MIRACLE by Jonathan Miles

With his widely praised novels Dear American Airlines and Want Not, Jonathan Miles established himself as one of the most insightful and original voices in modern American fiction. His exquisite new novel Anatomy of a Miracle cements his reputation as a storyteller of rare sensibility and intellectual curiosity. Brilliantly written and powerfully executed, Anatomy of a Miracle does nothing less than render the supernatural tangible, as one man struggles with the possibility—and the consequences—of a miracle in his own life. At once universal and intimate, transcendent and grounded, Miles’ unforgettable novel will touch your heart and bring you face-to-face with extraordinary hope, with profound doubt, and with the ultimate question: How would you react if a miracle happened to you?
