Jill's Cat Video of the Month
4th of July
Through all the years of strife and triumph, America has been shaped not just by our elected leaders and our formal politics but also by our music-by the lyrics, performers, and instrumentals that have helped to carry us through the dark days and to celebrate the bright ones.

From "The Star-Spangled Banner" to "Born in the U.S.A.," Jon Meacham and Tim McGraw take readers on a moving and insightful journey through eras in American history and the songs and performers that inspired us. Meacham chronicles our history, exploring the stories behind the songs, and Tim McGraw reflects on them as an artist and performer. Their perspectives combine to create a unique view of the role music has played in uniting and shaping a nation.

Beginning with the battle hymns of the revolution, and taking us through songs from the defining events of the Civil War, the fight for women's suffrage, the two world wars, the Great Depression, the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, and into the twenty-first century, Meacham and McGraw explore the songs that defined generations, and the cultural and political climates that produced them. Readers will discover the power of music in the lives of figures such as Harriet Tubman, Franklin Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King, Jr., and will learn more about some of our most beloved musicians and performers, including Marian Anderson, Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Duke Ellington, Carole King, Bruce Springsteen, and more.

Songs of America explores both famous songs and lesser-known ones, expanding our understanding of the scope of American music and lending deeper meaning to the historical context of such songs as "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," "God Bless America," "Over There," "We Shall Overcome," and "Blowin' in the Wind." As Quincy Jones says, Meacham and McGraw have "convened a concert in Songs of America," one that reminds us of who we are, where we've been, and what we, at our best, can be.

July 16th is the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing
In 1961, President John F. Kennedy proposed the nation spend twenty billion dollars to land a man on the Moon before the end of the decade. Based on eyewitness accounts and newly discovered archival material,  Chasing the Moon  reveals for the first time the unknown stories of the fascinating individuals whose imaginative work across several decades culminated in America’s momentous achievement. More than a story of engineers and astronauts, the moon landing—now celebrating its fiftieth anniversary—grew out of the dreams of science fiction writers, filmmakers, military geniuses, and rule-breaking scientists. They include

• Science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, whose writing inspired some of the key players in the Moon race. A scientific paper he wrote in his twenties led to the U.S. beating Russia in one area of space: communications satellites.
• Wernher von Braun, the former Nazi military genius who oversaw Hitler's rocket weapons program. After working on ballistic missiles for the U.S. Army, he was recruited by NASA to manage the creation of the Saturn V moon rocket. 
• Astronaut Frank Borman, commander of the first mission to circumnavigate the Moon, whose powerful testimony before Congress in 1967 decisively saved the U.S. lunar program from being cancelled.
• Poppy Northcutt, a young mathematician who was the first woman to work in Mission Control. Her media exposure as a unique presence in this all-male world allowed her the freedom to stand up for equal rights for women and minorities.
• Edward Dwight, an African American astronaut candidate, recruited at the urging of the Kennedy White House to further the administration’s civil rights agenda—but not everyone welcomed his inclusion.

Setting these key players in the political, social, and cultural climate of the time, and including captivating photographs throughout,  Chasing the Moon  focuses on the science and the history, but most important, the extraordinary individuals behind what was undoubtedly the greatest human achievement of the twentieth century.

Fiction
The Golden Hour by Beatriz Williams (Signed copies on order!)

The Bahamas, 1941. Newly-widowed Leonora “Lulu” Randolph arrives in Nassau to investigate the Governor and his wife for a New York society magazine. After all, American readers have an insatiable appetite for news of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, that glamorous couple whose love affair nearly brought the British monarchy to its knees five years earlier. What more intriguing backdrop for their romance than a wartime Caribbean paradise, a colonial playground for kingpins of ill-gotten empires?

Or so Lulu imagines. But as she infiltrates the Duke and Duchess’s social circle, and the powerful cabal that controls the islands’ political and financial affairs, she uncovers evidence that beneath the glister of Wallis and Edward’s marriage lies an ugly—and even treasonous—reality. In fact, Windsor-era Nassau seethes with spies, financial swindles, and racial tension, and in the middle of it all stands Benedict Thorpe: a scientist of tremendous charm and murky national loyalties. Inevitably, the willful and wounded Lulu falls in love.

Then Nassau’s wealthiest man is murdered in one of the most notorious cases of the century, and the resulting coverup reeks of royal privilege. Benedict Thorpe disappears without a trace, and Lulu embarks on a journey to London and beyond to unpick Thorpe’s complicated family history: a fateful love affair, a wartime tragedy, and a mother from whom all joy is stolen.

The stories of two unforgettable women thread together in this extraordinary epic of espionage, sacrifice, human love, and human courage, set against a shocking true crime . . . and the rise and fall of a legendary royal couple.

The Flight Girls by Noelle Salazar

A stunning story about the Women Airforce Service Pilots, whose courage during World War II turned ordinary women into extraordinary heroes

1941. Audrey Coltrane has always wanted to fly. It’s why she implored her father to teach her at the little airfield back home in Texas. It’s why she signed up to train military pilots in Hawaii when the war in Europe began. And it’s why she insists she is not interested in any dream-derailing romantic involvements, even with the disarming Lieutenant James Hart, who fast becomes a friend as treasured as the women she flies with. Then one fateful day, she gets caught in the air over Pearl Harbor just as the bombs begin to fall, and suddenly, nowhere feels safe.

To make everything she’s lost count for something, Audrey joins the Women Airforce Service Pilots program. The bonds she forms with her fellow pilots reignite a spark of hope in the face of war, and—especially when James goes missing in action—give Audrey the strength to cross the front lines and fight for everything she holds dear.

Shining a light on a little-known piece of history,  The Flight Girls  is a sweeping portrayal of women’s fearlessness in the face of adversity, and the power of friendship to make us soar.

Summer of '69 by Elin Hilderbrand

Four siblings experience the drama, intrigue, and upheaval of a summer when everything changed, in  New York Times  bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand's first historical novel 

Welcome to the most tumultuous summer of the twentieth century. It's 1969, and for the Levin family, the times they are a-changing. Every year the children have looked forward to spending the summer at their grandmother's historic home in downtown Nantucket. But like so much else in America, nothing is the same: Blair, the oldest sister, is marooned in Boston, pregnant with twins and unable to travel. Middle sister Kirby, caught up in the thrilling vortex of civil rights protests and determined to be independent, takes a summer job on Martha's Vineyard. Only-son Tiger is an infantry soldier, recently deployed to Vietnam. Thirteen-year-old Jessie suddenly feels like an only child, marooned in the house with her out-of-touch grandmother and her worried mother, each of them hiding a troubling secret. As the summer heats up, Ted Kennedy sinks a car in Chappaquiddick, man flies to the moon, and Jessie and her family experience their own dramatic upheavals along with the rest of the country. 

In her first historical novel, rich with the details of an era that shaped both a nation and an island thirty miles out to sea, Elin Hilderbrand once again earns her title as queen of the summer novel.

Crescendo: The True Story of a Musical Genius Who Forever Changed a Southern Town by Allen Cheney

A story of mercy, miracles, and melody—and above all else: love.

During the Great Depression, Fred Allen is born poor and hungry in the shadow of rural Georgia’s infamous cotton mills. By the time Fred is three years old, he can play hymns on the piano without missing a note. In kindergarten, he amazes adults with Chopin. Terrified that Fred’s genius is proof of a curse, his parents lock away the piano.

Cut off from his only source of joy, little Fred sinks into the chasms of neglect, depression, and hunger. Then Eleanor, a woman just released from prison for attempted murder, rents a room in his family’s deteriorating home. Under her fierce eye, Fred is protected, fed, and loved. “You gotta find a way to get out,” Eleanor says. “You were born for so much more than this.”

Fred undertakes an arduous but miraculous journey through the Juilliard School in New York City, Union Theological Seminary, Columbia University, and eventually the professional music scene. With the help of a few miracles, he climbs the ladder of success, marries, becomes a father and a scholar, and establishes an enviable reputation as a Grammy-nominated music producer.

Then in heartbreaking speed, Fred’s past catches up with him, and his family becomes divided. He must choose either to pursue his dreams of fame and success or love.
But miracles aren’t just for those with big-city dreams. In Thomasville, Georgia, amid the wreckage of his history, Fred and his resilient wife, Winnie, reassemble the pieces of their lives and encounter what just might be the greatest miracle yet—not just for them but for the entire town.

This inspiring story is sure to encourage anyone who has ever hoped their creative abilities might touch the lives of others.

The Vagabonds: The Story of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison's Ten-Year Road Trip by Jeff Guinn

The fascinating story of two American giants—Henry Ford and Thomas Edison—whose annual summer sojourns introduced the road trip to our culture and made the automobile an essential part of modern life, even as their own relationship altered dramatically. 

In 1914 Henry Ford and naturalist John Burroughs visited Thomas Edison in Florida and toured the Everglades. The following year Ford, Edison, and tire maker Harvey Firestone joined together on a summer camping trip and decided to call themselves the Vagabonds. They would continue their summer road trips until 1925, when they announced that their fame made it too difficult for them to carry on.

Although the Vagabonds traveled with an entourage of chefs, butlers, and others, this elite fraternity also had a serious purpose: to examine the conditions of America’s roadways and improve the practicality of automobile travel. Cars were unreliable and the roads were even worse. But newspaper coverage of these trips was extensive, and as cars and roads improved, the summer trip by automobile soon became a desired element of American life.

In  The Vagabonds  Jeff Guinn shares the story of this pivotal moment in American history. But he also examines the important relationship between the older Edison and the younger Ford, who once worked for the famous inventor. The road trips made the automobile ubiquitous and magnified Ford’s reputation, even as Edison’s diminished. The automobile had come of age and it would transform the American landscape, the American economy, and the American way of life.

Guinn brings to life this seminal moment when a new industry created a watershed cultural shift and a famous businessman became a prominent political figure.  The Vagabonds  is a wonderful story of two American giants and the transformation of the country.

Siege: Trump Under Fire by Michael Wolff

Michael Wolff, author of the bombshell bestseller  Fire and Fury , once again takes us inside the Trump presidency to reveal a White House under siege.

Just one year into Donald Trump’s term as president, Michael Wolff told the electrifying story of a White House consumed by controversy, chaos, and intense rivalries.  Fire and Fury , an instant sensation, defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in  Siege , Wolff has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side.

At the outset of Trump’s second year as president, his situation is profoundly different. No longer tempered by experienced advisers, he is more impulsive and volatile than ever. But the wheels of justice are inexorably turning: Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt” haunts Trump every day, and other federal prosecutors are taking a deep dive into his business affairs. Many in the political establishment—even some members of his own administration—have turned on him and are dedicated to bringing him down. The Democrats see victory at the polls, and perhaps impeachment, in front of them. Trump, meanwhile, is certain he is invincible, making him all the more exposed and vulnerable. Week by week, as Trump becomes increasingly erratic, the question that lies at the heart of his tenure becomes ever more urgent: Will this most abnormal of presidencies at last reach the breaking point and implode?

Both a riveting narrative and a brilliant front-lines report,  Siege  provides an alarming and indelible portrait of a president like no other. Surrounded by enemies and blind to his peril, Trump is a raging, self-destructive inferno—and the most divisive leader in American history.

Serafina and the Seven Stars by Robert Beatty

When Mr. Vanderbilt, the kind master of Biltmore, asks Serafina to move upstairs into one of the house's grandest rooms, she's sure it's to keep an eye on the guests who have arrived for the estate's annual hunt. 


But as Serafina investigates, she becomes more and more unsettled by what Biltmore has become-a place haunted by nameless terrors where no dark corridor is safe. Even worse, she begins to doubt her own senses. Is Braeden really hundreds of miles away, or did he return to Biltmore for one strange night before vanishing? Is the bond between them truly broken or is it stronger than ever? 


Then Serafina witnesses a crime that turns her world upside down. How can all that once seemed good and worthy of protection now be evil? And how can she guard those around her when she can't even be sure of the truth of her own heart? 


Serafina and the Seven Stars  marks the return of a heroine like no other, as   master storyteller Robert Beatty weaves his darkest, most astonishing tale yet.

And when it is your child that has been kidnapped and is in the grip of The Chain, you find yourself capable of doing things you could never conceive.

Hideaway by Nicole Lundrigan

What makes you continue to read a story that is so dark and unsettling you can’t imagine it being real? The fact that you know that families like the Janes’ do exist and you have to find out what happens. This is an emotionally charged and powerful story. Told by the two children involved, both young and naïve, and easily manipulated because your parents are supposed to only want what is best for you. This is a house of evil. I could not put this one down. A most disturbing story… thank you, Mommy Dearest!

Lies by T.M. Logan

What if 4-year-old William had been looking the other way and hadn’t seen his mother’s car? What if Joe hadn’t followed his wife? Would Joe have found out that what he thought was a perfect marriage was really a lie? Would Joe have ended up on the verge of being arrested for murder because of overwhelming evidence (mostly because of smart phones and social media) that he had killed his wife’s lover? We will never know the what if’s because Joe did follow his wife’s car that night, and he did have an altercation with Ben, and Ben has not been seen since. The lies just keep building until you are sure that you finally know the truth and then you are totally blindsided by the ending. One of the scariest – because innocent people can be charged and found guilty of murders they haven’t committed – and best reads of the year! (Seconded by Jackie!)

A Nearly Normal Family by M.T. Edvardsson

The Sandalls seem like a perfectly normal family. They even would say they were if asked. But, what really is normal? Stella is 17. She has always been her own person and rarely conformed to what others thought she should do. But, even those that thought she was strong willed and stubborn didn’t believe she could kill someone and yet she is in remand for killing a 33 year old man that she allegedly had an affair with. Her father, Adam, is a pastor and he knows that his strong beliefs and his desire for Stella to be the person he thinks she should be has driven a wedge between them. Ulrika is a very successful lawyer who has let her job take precedent over trying to forge a meaningful relationship with her daughter. Amina is Stella’s best friend and has been since they were youngsters. She seems to be the only one who truly understands Stella and the only one Stella really cares about. But, has that all changed? The story begins with Stella on trial for murder and her father about to testify. It is told from 3 points of view, Adam’s, Ulrika’s and Stella’s. As each tells their story they reveal things about themselves that help us understand who they are and why each is doing what he or she is doing. They each separately decide to do what needs to be done to save their family and friendship but will it work or will it backfire terribly? This is a compulsive, totally addictive psychological thriller, legal thriller and intense family drama all rolled into one.

The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt by Andrea Bobotis

I can't say enough good things about this book! As 75 year old Judith Kratt begins to make an inventory of the many beautiful antique items in her ancestral home many of the items bring back memories of her life in 1929 as a 13yo helping her father, Daddy Kratt, run his general store in the small upstate town of Bound, SC and watching how he, often ruthlessly, ran 'his' town and his family. The story is told beautifully through the voice of Judith going back a few years before the night in 1929, when her brother Quincy was murdered, to 1985. Judith is a wonderful, but complicated character and the perfect person to describe what life was like in the deeply segregated south at a time when cotton was king. She always speaks her mind, has trouble relating to others, likes things organized, and loves routines. She is the complete opposite of her younger sister who is truly a free spirit. As Judith makes her list and savors her memories her life suddenly changes. Her sister, Rosemary, who left town 60 years earlier the night their brother was killed and whom she has had no contact with since suddenly returns to Bound. Judith is forced to face more than just her happy memories, as the truth finally comes out about what really happened on that fateful night in 1929. The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt is a story to savor. Even though I wanted to know what happened the night Quincy died I didn’t want the story of Judith’s life to end. The writing is exquisite and paints a picture of a small southern town and its occupants from its hay days in the 20s to the 1980s where time has essentially stood still for many of the occupants.

Whisper Network by Chandler Baker

The Whisper Network is a novel whose time has definitely come. I loved it and couldn’t put it down. It is told first from the perspective of women in general and then in the voice of each of the main characters. It teaches a chilling lesson of how inappropriate actions and words in the work place are often ignored, excused or justified because of pure greed or of potential harm to a career or a friendship. The lives of four women, all in-house lawyers for a large sports apparel company, will never be the same after the company CEO dies suddenly and they find out the general counsel, Ames Garrett, is slated to be promoted to CEO. For years there were whispers about Ames’s treatment of women but nothing was ever openly talked about until the women decide, finally, that enough is enough. And then someone dies!

A Family of Strangers by Emilie Richards

I really enjoyed this book. The family dynamics were fascinating and led to quickly becoming engaged. Ryan is an interesting individual, she is someone who forged a path and developed a lifestyle counter to that of her family and how she was raised. A surprise phone call from her much older sister she rarely hears from sets her on a journey she can never imagine. Part of it she is uniquely qualified for, finding the circumstances of a crime when she has a cold case podcast is not a huge undertaking. Showing up and keeping her six and eight year old nieces for an indeterminate time is something else all together. There is plenty of family interaction and a former flame is involved. Plenty of action and a complex plot.

Her Deadly Secrets by Laura Griffin

A really good standalone from Laura Griffin. While not part of the Tracers series, the characters here are as well developed and capture your interest from the first pages. The family dynamics and views inside a marriage are well written and very fast paced. Once you start the book you will find your heart pounding at the risks Kira will take to find the truth. The security team interaction is a good glimpse at men and women who put themselves at risk with every job.

A great look behind the curtain at many current realities and issues with a stunning plot twist.

Under Currents by Nora Roberts

A shattering look at what goes on behind closed doors, especially tragic when the victims are children. On the surface Zane and Britt have the perfect childhood, the North Carolina mountains, their father is a successful surgeon and their mother is the perfect hostess. A loving aunt is nearby, but held at a distance. One night the darkness inside the home spills out, but will anyone dare to confront a successful surgeon? The book has such deep and rich characters and does a perfect segue to the adult lives of Zane and Britt. Many of the supporting characters are so strong they could have their own story as the main focus.
