The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colga
This title was suggested by one of the Page Turners, and we are very excited to see what's in store as we read the tale of a former librarian who moves from England to the Scottish Highlands. Expect an amazing setting, charming characters, and, according to Booklist, "a cheering tale [that] celebrates the many ways books bring people together."

This novel was described by the website Popsugar as "one part coming-of-age, one part mystery, and all parts utter delight." Join us for a literary thrill ride!
Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
This novel is based on a real-life scandal, in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country. People magazine called this book "a poignant, engrossing tale about sibling love and the toll of secrets."
