Books of the week of April 26

“Happy Place”
By Emily Henry

In this new book by Emily Henry, the bonds of friendship and romantic relationships are tested. Harriet Kilpatrick is an aspiring brain surgeon. Wyn Connor is a charmer. Harriet suffers from trying to make everyone else happy. Wyn suffers from trying to make everyone like him. The two of them couldn’t be more perfect for one another. At least, they were until five months ago when Wyn called and broke up with Harriet in four minutes. Now, their four best friends have forced both of them to come on the annual week-long group trip. They will sing, dance, swim, eat a lot of lobster rolls, and much more in a cozy lake town in Vermont. The only catch is that no one knows they broke up. For an entire week, they will have to pull of the rouse of their life in front of the four people who know them the best. Sounds easy enough. However, as the week passes, the truth of their breakups, their friendships and growing up are revealed.

In this romantic contemporary fiction, the real-life ups and downs of any kind of relationship are depicted well. This book takes the reader on a journey of learning to recognize your own hopes and dreams and how those can change your relationships with those closest to you. You can find this book in the library and on the Libby app.

“The House of Eve”
By Sadeqa Johnson

In the 1950s, a teenage Ruby is on track to be the first one in her family to go to college on a full scholarship. When a taboo love affair with a white Jewish boy causes a hiccup in her plans, Ruby has some difficult decisions to make that could alter her chance to have a better life.

In Washington, D.C., Eleanor arrives on the campus of Howard University where she meets William Price. William is from an affluential family. Eleanor struggles to find her place in William’s world all while working hard to get her degree.

Both Ruby and Eleanor have difficult choices to make that will set the course of their lives forever. Their lives intertwine in the most beautiful, incredible way. These two women show so much strength and compassion to others and to themselves. The lives they lead are not easy and the world is not always kind to them. Nevertheless, Ruby and Eleanor persevere. Check “House of Eve” out at the library or on Libby.
