The lowdown from Goodreads

Publish Date January 5, 2016

Simply told but deeply affecting, in the bestselling tradition of Alice McDermott and Tom Perrotta, this urgent novel unravels the heartrending yet unsentimental tale of a woman who kidnaps a baby in a superstore and gets away with it for twenty-one years.

Lucy Wakefield is a seemingly ordinary woman who does something extraordinary in a desperate moment: she takes a baby girl from a shopping cart and raises her as her own. It s a secret she manages to keep for over two decades from her daughter, the babysitter who helped raise her, family, coworkers, and friends.

When Lucy s now-grown daughter Mia discovers the devastating truth of her origins, she is overwhelmed by confusion and anger and determines not to speak again to the mother who raised her. She reaches out to her birth mother for a tearful reunion, and Lucy is forced to flee to China to avoid prosecution. What follows is a ripple effect that alters the lives of many and challenges our understanding of the very meaning of motherhood.

Author Helen Klein Ross, whose work has appeared in โ€œThe New Yorker,โ€ weaves a powerful story of upheaval and resilience told from the alternating perspectives of Lucy, Mia, Mia s birth mother, and others intimately involved in the kidnapping. โ€œWhat Was Mineโ€ is a compelling tale of motherhood and loss, of grief and hope, and the life-shattering effects of a single, irrevocable moment.

๐Ÿ“šELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE BY GAIL HONEYMAN BOOK REVIEW๐Ÿ“š
In my best Kevin Hart voice, I wasnโ€™t ready for this book. I've got full review on the blog. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿป
Also, we are toying with a new format, so let us know what you think. ๐Ÿค”
"Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine was a delightful, emotional & unexpected read for me. Reading the title description, I thoughtย I was in for a quirky, heartwarming read that would end with a unique love connection.ย Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fineย is all those things, and so much more." @stslusher ๐Ÿ“–
The lowdown from Goodreads
Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what sheโ€™s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.
Then everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been livingโ€“and it is Raymondโ€™s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

"We are only one episode on & I am hooked. Jessica Biel is delivering a phenomenal performance & she is an executive producer on the series. When Cora spends her first night in jail and doesn't have her sleeping pills, Jessica displays so much frustration, fear, anger & pain that it's so hard to watch, but as a viewer, we can't look away. The Sinner airs tonight, so don't miss it." ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

From @usa_network Young mother Cora Tannetti is overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage that leads her to commit a startling -- and very public -- act of violence, with no explanation as to why she did it. When Detective Harry Ambrose begins his investigation and grows obsessed with uncovering Cora's hidden motive, the two work together to try to get deep into her psyche to learn about the violent secrets that are hidden in her past. The eight-episode thriller -- which tries to uncover the "why" instead of the "who" or "what" -- stars Jessica Biel, who also serves as an executive producer, and Bill Pullman in the lead roles..
