The Daughters of Erietown
1957, Clayton Valley, Ohio. Ellie has the best grades in her class. Her dream is to go to nursing school and marry Brick McGinty. A basketball star, Brick has the chance to escape his abusive father and become the first person in his blue-collar family to attend college. But when Ellie learns that she is pregnant, everything changes. Just as Brick and Ellie revise their plans and build a family, a knock on the front door threatens to destroy their lives. The evolution of women's lives spanning the second half of the twentieth century is at the center of this beautiful debut that richly portrays how much people know--and pretend not to know--about the secrets at the heart of a town, and a family.
The Distant Dead

Adam, a former university professor, shared a close connection with Sal Prentiss, a lonely sixth grader who is the one to find his body. Nora Wheaton, the middle school's social studies teacher, suspects Sal knows more than he's telling about how his favorite teacher died.
