42462426. sx318 I received a copy of this audiobook from Harperaudio and am excited about listening to it. I have read some great reviews of this book, so I hope it lives up to my expectations.

When her beloved nanny, Hannah, left without a trace in the summer of 1988, seven-year-old Jocelyn Holt was devastated. Haunted by the loss, Jo grew up bitter and distant, and eventually left her parents and Lake Hall, their faded aristocratic home, behind.

Thirty years later, Jo returns to the house and is forced to confront her troubled relationship with her mother. But when human remains are accidentally uncovered in a lake on the estate, Jo begins to question everything she thought she knew.

Then an unexpected visitor knocks on the door and Jo’s world is destroyed again. Desperate to piece together the gaping holes in her memory, Jo must uncover who her nanny really was, why she left, and if she can trust her own mother…

In this compulsively readable tale of secrets, lies, and deception, Gilly Macmillan explores the darkest impulses and desires of the human heart. Diabolically clever, The Nanny reminds us that sometimes the truth hurts so much you’d rather hear the lie.


Forged Through Fire: A Reconstructive Surgeon's Story of Survival, Faith, and HealingThis is not the type of book that I often read, but when I saw it was being offered by Just Reads Tours, I jumped at the chance to read this memoir. (Digital Edition) My husband had an accident at work where he ended up with electrical burns and was in the hospital for a few months on and off. It was not as bad as Mark McDonough would have gone through, but it has given me an interest in those suffering from serious burn injuries.

When Mark McDonough was a teen, a catastrophic fire claimed the lives of his mother and younger brother. It also left Mark with burns on over 65 percent of his body. During a long and painful recovery, his faltering faith in God was strengthened by a remarkable near-death experience. Inspired to pursue a career as a plastic surgeon to help those who suffer as he has, McDonough has overcome numerous other adversities on his journey, including addiction and a stroke. Now he shares his incredible true story of survival and perseverance to bring hope and healing to those dealing with great physical and emotional pain.

Anyone who has suffered or watched a loved one suffer from a personal trauma, disease, or loss that has tested or stolen their faith and exhausted their emotional resources will find real hope in this redemptive story.


80634From the library I have a few books to get read that will fulfill a prompt in the Popsugar Challenge. My next physical book will be 24 Hours by Greg Iles. This one was recommended by a fellow blogger at Fictionophile.

24 HOURS — that’s how long it takes a madman to pull off the perfect crime. He’s done it before, he’ll do it again, and no one can stop him.

But this time, he’s just picked the wrong family to terrorize. Because Will and Karen Jennings aren’t going to watch helplessly as he victimizes them. And they aren’t going to let him get away with it.

Have you read any of the above books. Let me know what you thought about them. What are you going to read next?
