New On the Shelf

The Thinnest Air by Minka Kent.  Married to a charming and successful financial broker, two wonderful stepchildren, and a home in a mountain resort town, Meredith Price seems to be living a charmed life.  Until she disappears without a trace.  When her car is found in the parking lot of a local grocery store nothing seems amiss, her purse and phone are undisturbed, keys in the ignition as if she just faded into nothingness.  Knowing that abandoning her family isn’t something Meredith would do lightly, her sister Greer makes her way to the mountain town she called home to search for answers.  Digging into her sisters’ life, Greer must ask herself if anyone, even her, really knew Meredith. 

The Good Fight by Danielle Steel.  Meredith McKenzie grew up with the best of everything, schools, social groups, perfect marriage.  As a child, her family lived in Germany while her father prosecuted Nazi war criminals, exposing her to law and the conflict of “good and evil”.  Upon her return to the US, she sets out to blaze her own trail in life, specifically studying law with a view towards furthering the civil rights cause.  In an era of social upheaval, Meredith joins a rising tide of women breaking social, political, and professional boundaries. 

Clock Dance by Anne Tyler. Everyone has defining moments in their lives, Willa Drake can count them on one hand.  Her mother disappearing when she was eleven, a proposal at twenty-one, becoming a widow at forty-one, all events putting her on a path laid out by other people.  When she gets a phone call about her son’s ex-girlfriend getting shot and needing help, Willa drops everything to fly across the country for her.  Taking care of this woman, and her nine-year-old daughter, and her dog, puts Willa on a path she has never walked, one she chose for herself.
