From multiple award-winner and renowned author Anthony Doerr comes the dazzling and electric novel about a blind French girl and an orphaned German boy whose fates lead them to one another as they struggle to survive the heat of the Second World War. Marie-Laure lives in Paris with her father, the Keeper of Keys at the Museum of Natural History. At the age of six, cataracts bring her blindness. Her father then constructs a scale model of their neighborhood, so she can learn her way back home. Six years later, the Germans began their occupation of Paris, so Marie-Laure and her father flee to Saint-Malo where her great-uncle Etienne lived in a tall, narrow house near the sea. Entrusted to Marie-Laure's father is the museum's most precious and perhaps most dangerous artifact—the Sea of Flames. In a coal mining town in Germany live the orphaned siblings, Werner and Jutta. They find an old radio, and Werner, being a curious boy, grows a talent in fixing radios. His knack for electronics earns him a recommendation in a ruthless Hitler Youth academy. He is assigned to a division that locates and eliminates rebels who make anti-German broadcasts. When Werner's unit is called to trace the resistance in Saint-Malo, his path finally collides with Marie-Laure's in an encounter that will change their lives forever.

During the apartheid in South Africa, an interracial union was forbidden by the law and could ensue five years of imprisonment. Trevor’s father was a Swiss man and his mother was a Xhosa woman—he was the living proof of their relation. Because of this, Trevor grew up being hidden and protected by his mother, by all means possible, in fear of the government taking him away from her. When South Africa was finally liberated from the white colonization, Trevor and his mother went off on an adventure entailing multitudes of difficulties and seizing opportunities. The book, Born a Crime, tells the tale of a young mixed-race boy growing up in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It tells his story of overcoming difficulties he could possibly face with his strong, courageous, dedicated, and religion mother who was determined to take her son away from all the violence, poverty, and abuse that she, herself, faced. Every story within the overarching story of Trevor involves crises that are overwhelming, dangerous, and touching—with a touch of humor. From having to survive eating caterpillars for dinner, experiencing attempted kidnapping, to simply trying to work out how the world of dating in high school, Trevor shows the stories reflecting himself through wit and humor. He creates a tale entwining small sagas of trying to grow up as a fine man amidst a difficult and dangerous world, guided by his own sense of humor and his mother’s unconditional love.

Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic lung cancer at the age of thirty-six, just nearing his ten-year mark as a neurosurgeon in training. At one moment, he was a doctor treating patients and the next, he was a patient needing doctors. His diagnosis changed everything, including the future that he and his wife, Lucy, had envisioned. When Breath Becomes Air is Kalanithi's account of his transition from being a young medical student fixated on answering the profound question about what makes one's life meaningful in spite of the certainty of death, to a trained neurosurgeon in charge of one's source of identity—the human brain, and ultimately to a man welcomed to fatherhood as well as to the realization of his mortality. What makes life worthwhile when death is but an inevitability? How will you move forward when the future you have imagined crumbles into an impasse? Why bring new life into the world when your own is slipping right between your fingers? These are only some of the thought-provoking questions Kalanithi presents in this masterfully written memoir. Paul Kalanithi passed away on March 9, 2015. Though unfinished, When Breath Becomes Air continues to serve as a guide to those who have lost their way. It is the reflection of a brave and dignified man—once a doctor, then a patient—who continued to affirm life even in the face of death. Wait no more, take action and get this book now!

Book Short Summary:

A few moments after birth, Lisbeth is taken from the arms of her mother and immediately handed to those of a black wet nurse named Mattie. Mattie is a slave, and upon the orders of her master, she is forced to leave her own child and care for another. Lisbeth and Mattie then form an unlikely bond that grows only stronger through the years. Lisbeth comes to know a life of privilege and affluence, but neither is enough to ease away the loneliness brought by the company of her subservient mother and indifferent father. Over time, Mattie becomes more like family to her than her own flesh and blood. Their hearts grow even closer—their bond even stronger—with every visit to the quarters of the slaves as well as their warm, welcoming community. Laila Ibrahim's Yellow Crocus is a story set in the turbulent mid-1850s—a period when tensions are high and the country is at the brink of change. It tells of the bond between two women from opposite worlds—a love that is undimmed by time, unbound by race.

Book Short Summary:

In Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, renowned historian Yuval Noah Harari chronicles both the creation and evolution of humankind. Harari recounts the manner in which both history and biology have defined and enriched our understanding of what truly being “human” means. Unlike most books that either utilize a biological or a historical approach in narrating the history of humankind, Sapiens opens at the dawn of modern cognition approximately 70,000 years ago. From how human evolution has played a part in transforming the world’s ecosystem to how empires and civilizations arose, Harari integrates science and history to reexamine generally accepted ideologies, link developments in the past to the matters of the present, and evaluate detailed events in a much wider perspective. We are entering a new age—an era where humans can not only successfully shape the world but also shape themselves. Where does this lead humankind? More importantly: what do you want to become?

Book Short Summary:

Daniel James Brown's The Boys in the Boat tells the true story of overcoming the insuperable and achieving the improbable. Brown's story recounts the glorious triumph of the nine American boys who revealed the face of true grit to the entire world during the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The University of Washington's eight-oar rowing team composed of boys from middle-class families: sons of farmers, shipyard workers, and loggers. Victory seemed out of reach even from the beginning, but no odds ever stopped them from defeating their rivals from the East Coast, the elite from Great Britain, and even the German rowing crew representing Adolf Hitler himself. Enthralling and truly relatable, Brown's The Boys in the Boat tells of a quest for victory and salvation. It is founded on the boys' journals as well as their personal accounts of the phenomenal feat—a narrative about the era's remarkable triumph over great odds and finding the light in the dark when all hope seems lost.

Book Short Summary:

Change has arrived in America. With it comes a new world order—the rise of a theocratic regime called the Republic of Gilead which takes the Old Testament at its every word. Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the ill-fated Handmaids in the new Republic of Gilead. In the present world, Handmaids are stripped of their own names, their rights, their families, and even their ability to read and write. Now a mere possession of one of the new regime's formidable Commanders and his Wife, Offred's value lies only in her fertility and her capacity to bear a child. Gripping and grotesque, The Handmaid's Tale is a dystopian masterpiece that illustrates what could happen when the liberal transforms into the puritanical, and what people are capable of when the puritanical ultimately distorts into the radical.

Book Short Summary:

*Winner of the Pulitzer Prize* A New York Times Book Review Top Ten Book* A National Book Award Finalist* From Anthony Doerr, the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning author of Cloud Cuckoo Land, the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. *Soon to be a Netflix limited series from the producers of Stranger Things* Marie-Laure lives in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where her father works. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel. In a mining town in Germany, Werner Pfennig, an orphan, grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find that brings them news and stories from places they have never seen or imagined. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments and is enlisted to use his talent to track down the resistance. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” (Los Angeles Times).

Book Short Summary:

On the New York Times bestseller list for 19 weeks * A New York Times Notable Book * A Barack Obama Favorite * A National Book Award Finalist * Named a Best of the Year by Fresh Air, Time, Entertainment Weekly, Associated Press, and many more—one of the ten books that appeared on the most lists for 2021 “If you’re looking for a superb novel, look no further.” —The Washington Post From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of All the Light We Cannot See, comes the instant New York Times bestseller that is a “wildly inventive, a humane and uplifting book for adults that’s infused with the magic of childhood reading experiences” (The New York Times Book Review). Among the most celebrated and beloved novels of 2021, Anthony Doerr’s gorgeous third novel is a triumph of imagination and compassion, a soaring story about children on the cusp of adulthood in worlds in peril, who find resilience, hope—and a book. In Cloud Cuckoo Land, Doerr has created a magnificent tapestry of times and places that reflects our vast interconnectedness—with other species, with each other, with those who lived before us, and with those who will be here after we’re gone. Thirteen-year-old Anna, an orphan, lives inside the formidable walls of Constantinople in a house of women who make their living embroidering the robes of priests. Restless, insatiably curious, Anna learns to read, and in this ancient city, famous for its libraries, she finds a book, the story of Aethon, who longs to be turned into a bird so that he can fly to a utopian paradise in the sky. This she reads to her ailing sister as the walls of the only place she has known are bombarded in the great siege of Constantinople. Outside the walls is Omeir, a village boy, miles from home, conscripted with his beloved oxen into the invading army. His path and Anna’s will cross. Five hundred years later, in a library in Idaho, octogenarian Zeno, who learned Greek as a prisoner of war, rehearses five children in a play adaptation of Aethon’s story, preserved against all odds through centuries. Tucked among the library shelves is a bomb, planted by a troubled, idealistic teenager, Seymour. This is another siege. And in a not-so-distant future, on the interstellar ship Argos, Konstance is alone in a vault, copying on scraps of sacking the story of Aethon, told to her by her father. She has never set foot on our planet. Like Marie-Laure and Werner in All the Light We Cannot See, Anna, Omeir, Seymour, Zeno, and Konstance are dreamers and outsiders who find resourcefulness and hope in the midst of gravest danger. Their lives are gloriously intertwined, and Doerr’s dazzling imagination transports us to worlds so dramatic and immersive that we forget, for a time, our own. Dedicated to “the librarians then, now, and in the years to come,” Cloud Cuckoo Land is a beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship—of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.

Book Short Summary:

The key to happiness is the mind. With the mind, we can switch our life to suffering or we can switch it to happiness, just as we change television channels, choosing to watch programs about fighting and war, or peaceful things, like the nature programs people seem to enjoy. Experiencing happiness or suffering depends entirely on what we do with our mind. -Lama Zopa Rinpoche in Sun of Devotion, Stream of Blessings Sun of Devotion, Stream of Blessings is the record of a remarkable series of powerful and clear Dharma teachings given by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche in 2014 to students at Leeds and London in the United Kingdom. Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive⿿s editor Gordon McDougall was present throughout these teachings and has now skillfully edited them into written form that retains the flavor of a great master giving precise instructions to the students sitting before him. In Sun of Devotion, Stream of Blessings, Rinpoche explains how to take care of our minds so that our happiness is in our own hands, gives profound teachings on the Buddhist philosophy of emptiness, discusses the need for ethics and a solid refuge, shows us how to cut the root of samsara, explores why practicing certain tantras is important and especially emphasizes how the guru is the most powerful object of our Dharma practice. Gordon has presented the subjects taught by Rinpoche in the order in which they were given, beginning with a deep commentary on the meaning of sang-gyä, the Tibetan term usually translated as "buddha," and retaining the powerful method by which Rinpoche would repeatedly reinforce and expand upon earlier topics. Rinpoche also spends much time discussing the great qualities of Khadro-la (Rangjung Neljorma Khadro Namsel Drolma), the incredible being who has become so important to Tibetan Buddhism, FPMT and the world.

Book Short Summary:

"A touching story of heroism and loss, a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of love to transcend the most unthinkable circumstances." —Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Girls of Paris From the internationally bestselling author of The Orphan Collector comes a haunting and lyrical tale of love and humanity in a time of unthinkable horror. The debut novel from a powerful voice in historical fiction, this resonant and courageous saga of a young German woman during World War II and the Holocaust is a must-read for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and The Alice Network. “Bloom where you're planted," is the advice Christine Bölz receives from her beloved Oma. But seventeen-year-old domestic Christine knows there is a whole world waiting beyond her small German village. It's a world she's begun to glimpse through music, books—and through Isaac Bauerman, the cultured son of the wealthy Jewish family she works for. Yet the future she and Isaac dream of sharing faces greater challenges than their difference in stations. In the fall of 1938, Germany is changing rapidly under Hitler's regime. Anti-Jewish posters are everywhere, dissenting talk is silenced, and a new law forbids Christine from returning to her job—and from having any relationship with Isaac. In the months and years that follow, Christine will confront the Gestapo's wrath and the horrors of Dachau, desperate to be with the man she loves, to survive—and finally, to speak out. Set against the backdrop of the German homefront, this is an unforgettable novel of courage and resolve, of the inhumanity of war, and the heartbreak and hope left in its wake. "A haunting and beautiful debut novel." —Anna Jean Mayhew, author of The Dry Grass of August "Ellen Marie Wiseman boldly explores the complexities of the Holocaust. This novel is at times painful, but it is also a satisfying love story set against the backdrop of one of the most difficult times in human history." —T. Greenwood, author of Keeping Lucy

Book Short Summary:

In this reverse love story set in Paris and London, which The Wall Street Journal hailed as “funny and soulful…immediately appealing,” a failed monogamist attempts to woo his wife back and to answer the question: Is it really possible to fall back in love with your spouse? Despite the success of his first solo show in Paris and the support of his brilliant French wife and young daughter, thirty-four-year-old British artist Richard Haddon is too busy mourning the loss of his American mistress to a famous cutlery designer to appreciate his fortune. But after Richard discovers that a painting he originally made for his wife, Anne—when they were first married and deeply in love—has sold, it shocks him back to reality and he resolves to reinvest wholeheartedly in his family life…just in time for his wife to learn the extent of his affair. Rudderless and remorseful, Richard embarks on a series of misguided attempts to win Anne back while focusing his creative energy on a provocative art piece to prove that he’s still the man she once loved. Skillfully balancing biting wit with a deep emotional undercurrent, this “charming and engrossing portrait of one man’s midlife crisis” (Elle) creates the perfect picture of an imperfect family—and a heartfelt exploration of marriage, love, and fidelity.

Book Short Summary:

A stunningly powerful novel of humanity's will to survive against all odds during an epidemic by a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. An International Bestseller • "This is a shattering work by a literary master.”—Boston Globe A city is hit by an epidemic of "white blindness" which spares no one. Authorities confine the blind to an empty mental hospital, but there the criminal element holds everyone captive, stealing food rations and raping women. There is one eyewitness to this nightmare who guides seven strangers—among them a boy with no mother, a girl with dark glasses, a dog of tears—through the barren streets, and the procession becomes as uncanny as the surroundings are harrowing. A magnificent parable of loss and disorientation, Blindness has swept the reading public with its powerful portrayal of our worst appetites and weaknesses—and humanity's ultimately exhilarating spirit. "This is a an important book, one that is unafraid to face all of the horror of the century."—Washington Post A New York Times Notable Book of the Year A Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year
