A Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics

As Lucy Muchelney watches her ex-lover's sham of a wedding, she wishes herself anywhere else. It isn't until she finds a letter from the Countess of Moth, looking for someone to translate a groundbreaking French astronomy text, that she knows where to go. Showing up at the countess' London home, she hoped to find a challenge, not a woman who takes her breath away. Celebrate Bookstore Romance Day this week, with this charming novel from Seattle author Olivia Waite.

The Oysterville Sewing Circle

At the break of dawn, Caroline Shelby rolls into Oysterville, Washington, a tiny hamlet at the edge of the raging Pacific. She's come home to heal, and returns to her favorite place: the sewing shop owned by Mrs. Lindy Bloom, the woman who inspired her and taught her to sew. Thus begins the Oysterville Sewing Circle — where women can join forces to support each other through the troubles they keep hidden. The #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs brings us her most ambitious and provocative work yet — a searing and timely novel that explores the most volatile issue of our time — domestic violence.

Set in the far future, Ration is an unflinching take on the ways in which society can harm the very people it seeks to protect. The girls who live in the Apartments must weigh their own hunger against the lives of others. 

When wrongly accused of ordering an “A” ration, a meal made from the body of another, Cynthia is punished with brutality at the hands of the girls and exile from the only home she’s ever known. 

Cody T. Luff holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College. He teaches at Portland Community College.
