For those who like Drama with a capitol D, Not a Sound by Heather Gudenkauf is a “breathless story of a young nurse who has lost everything after a tragic accident“ (the Publisher). All that changes when she discovers the body of a fellow nurse in the dense bush by a river near her cabin and she is plunged into a disturbing mystery. In Against all Odds by Danielle Steel, a single mother tries to make the center hold as her children fall apart. New Boy by Tracy Chevalier is a re-telling of Othello, set in a modern prep school while House of Names by Colm Toibin makes Greek tragedy come alive in all its gory glory.
