Staff Pick

Barrie’s life is seemingly normal: a dog, a farm, supportive nearby family. But she has a secret. A decade’s old, magical secret seems to be well in control until a baby washes up on the nearby shore, government men show up looking for anything out of the ordinary, and her estranged husband returns as if no time has passed at all. The aftermath of the Second World War has everyone on edge but the series of stranger and stranger events threaten to derail the life that Barrie has created for herself in what was once a sleepy town.

The Love Prison Made and Unmade: My Story -- Ebony Roberts

Staff Pick

A love story unlike any other I have read, Ebony Roberts’ memoir gets vulnerable as she shares how she fell in love with Shaka Senghor during the last four years of his nineteen year prison sentence. The title alludes to the end of the romantic relationship, and her story highlights how it feels to love someone who is incarcerated as well how difficult it is for their relationship to flourish and readjust outside prison. We often forget the other victims of the legal system are family members who take care of those who are imprisoned.

More Than Enough -- Elaine Welteroth

Staff Pick

Many people know of  Elaine Welteroth’s work with Teen Vogue and of her lucky white boots, I was elated to find out she has written a memoir. Because she was the youngest editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue and the first African American director of beauty and health at Condé Nast, I thought I would fall into a book that was full of advice on how she became just that. But this book is the opposite. Instead of writing an advice book, she has been honest about her career and how hard it was being a FOD (first, only, different) in her industry and what happens when you make it to the top.
