Love Lives by Carol Dyhouse

Love Lives by Carol DyhouseEnter for a chance to win one of 15 copies of "Love Lives: From Cinderella to Frozen" by social historian Carol Dyhouse - the story of how women's lives, loves, and dreams have been re-shaped since 1950, the year of Walt Disney's Cinderella and a time when teenage girls dreamed of marriage, Mr Right, and happy endings...

The book illuminates how women's expectations and emotional landscapes have shifted, asking bold questions about how women's lives have been transformed since 1950.

How have women's changing life experiences been mirrored in new expectations about marriage, intimacy, and family life?

How have new forms of independence through education and work, and greater control over childbearing, altered women's life ambitions?

And were feminists right to believe that sexual equality would improve relationships between men and women?

The Vines by Shelley Nolden

The Vines by Shelley NoldenEnter for a chance to win a beautiful hardcover copy of this highly anticipated historical fiction thriller!

In the shadows of New York City lies the abandoned, forbidden North Brother Island, where the remains of a shuttered hospital hide the haunting memories of century-old quarantines and human experiments. The ruins conceal the scarred and beautiful Cora, imprisoned there by contagions and the doctors who torment her. When Finn, a young urban explorer, arrives on the island and glimpses this enigmatic woman through the foliage, intrigue turns to obsession as he seeks to uncover her past--and his own family's dark secrets.

By unraveling these mysteries, will he be able to save Cora? Or will she meet the same tragic ending as the thousands who’ve already perished on the island?

THE VINES intertwines North Brother Island's horrific and elusive history with a captivating tale of love, betrayal, survival, and loss.

"THE VINES weaves beautiful writing around an unsettling mystery: Who is the strange, scarred woman living on a seemingly uninhabitable island? Shelley Nolden's debut seems not just prescient - given the world's current focus on virology and immunizations - but also timeless, as it illustrates in painful detail how mankind seems destined to repeat our cruelest mistakes. Luckily for us readers, there's a bright thread of hope running through this book - as well as the promise of a sequel."

In Juneau, a young Native archeologist is sent to protect the ancient burial sites uncovered by an Alaskan gold mining company. He never returns.

Instead of tracking dangerous fugitives, Cutter and Lola will be keeping track of sequestered jurors in a high-profile trial. The case involves a massive drug conspiracy with ties to a mining company, a lobbyist, and two state senators. When a prosecuting attorney is murdered--and a reporter viciously attacked--Cutter realizes they're dealing with something much bigger, and darker, than a simple drug trial. The truth lies deep within the ancient sites and precious mines of this isolated land--and inside the cold hearts of those would kill to hide its secrets...
