"We don't get visitors. Not out here. We never have."
Junior and Henrietta live a quiet life on a secluded farm, away from the turbulent city life of the future. After years of seeing no one, a man suddenly appears on their doorstep and announces to Junior that he's been chosen to be a part of the work force on the construction of a space station. Junior is confused and looks to his beloved Henrietta for reassurance, but although she seems to know the man, she will not speak. Foe has us hooked in through tense conversations where we get glimpses of the truth and is nearly impossible not to finish in one sitting. The author's second novel is another psycho-thriller with a science-fiction touch that only confirms the author's great talent. Eerie and mind-bending, Foe is an unforgettable novel that deals with the question: "How do you really know someone?"

2 CHILDREN FOR SALE
The sign sits on a farmhouse porch in 1931, but could be found anywhere in this era of poverty and desperation. Struggling reporter Ellis Reed takes a photograph of the gut wrenching scene, with his own family's dark past in mind. At the paper, Lillian Palmer is far too familiar with the heartbreak of children deemed unwanted. Both haunted by the sign, she and Ellis must decide how much they are willing to risk to mend a fractured family.
Inspired by an actual newspaper photograph that stunned the world, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and the unexpected paths that bring us home.

Willa has lead an ordinary life, punctuated by a few dramatic moments: her mother leaving home when she is 11, being (maybe?) held at gunpoint when she is 21, a car accident which left her a widow and single parent in her forties; all events that contributed to Willa’s resilient, accepting, and somewhat understated nature. But when an unexpected phone call has her flying off to Baltimore and lands her among a colorful group of new friends, Willa will get an opportunity to finally become her own person and create her own defining moments.
Tyler’s characteristic understanding and caring telling of the lives of ordinary people makes Clock Dance a touching story, punctuated with lively dialog and filled with characters you will miss when you turn the last page.
