Did you know that female secret agents from England worked in occupied France during World War II? They were part of the SOE- Special Operations Executive, headed by Eleanor Trigg. This book tells the fictionalized biographies of some of these women. It is narrated by Eleanor, Grace, a woman who finds some of the pictures of the operatives in a suitcase in Grand Central Station after the war is over and also by Marie, one of the women recruited to become an operative. Marie becomes obsessed with the fate of these women after she learns who Eleanor Trigg was. Each chapter is told from a different woman’s perspective.

The Common Good
by Robert B Reich

Submitted by Lynn M.
Laying aside partisan bickering, Reich addresses the way that government, media, and the corporate world have been undermined by the determination to win at any cost, and by the erosion over time of adherence to unspoken norms and laws. The whole idea of a common good has been lost, and while a few people win, most of us lose. He suggests we demand that leaders behave like the trustees of the common good they are supposed to be. But how we're meant to do this when the only people who still have the power to change things are the very ones who most benefit from the status quo, he does not make clear.

The Life We Bury
by Allen Eskens

Submitted by Kelly K.
A college student’s writing assignment involves interviewing a dying Vietnam veteran who was imprisoned for a murder he possibly didn’t commit. The student is coping with his own guilt, an alcoholic mother, an autistic brother and a girlfriend with issues of her own, as he tries to find the actual murderer. This story is filled with great suspense/detective work, realistic characters as well as exploration of humanity and redemption.
