    Our book is "My Cousin Rachel," by Daphne du Maurier.

    Orphaned at an early age, Philip Ashley is raised by his older cousin, Ambrose. Resolutely single, Ambrose delights in Philip as his heir, and Philip grows to love Ambrose's grand estate as much as he does. But the world the two construct is shattered when Ambrose travels to Florence, where he falls in love and marries a mysterious distant cousin named Rachel. And there he dies suddenly.


    Jealous of his marriage, racked by suspicion at the hints in Ambrose's letters, and grief-stricken by his death, Philip prepares to meet his cousin's widow with hatred in his heart. But when she arrives at the estate, Rachel seems to be a different woman from the one described in Ambrose's letters. Beautiful, sophisticated, and magnetic, Philip cannot help but feel drawn to Rachel. And yet, questions linger: did she have had a hand in Ambrose's death? And how, exactly, did he die? As Philip pursues the answers to these questions, he realizes that his own fate could hang in the balance.

    Our book is "All That Is Mine I Carry With Me: A Novel," by William Landay.

    One afternoon in November 1975, ten-year-old Miranda Larkin comes home from school to find her house eerily quiet. Her mother is missing. Nothing else is out of place. There is no sign of struggle. Her mom’s pocketbook remains in the front hall, in its usual spot. And so begins a mystery that will span a lifetime. What happened to Jane Larkin?

    Investigators suspect Jane’s husband. A criminal defense attorney, Dan Larkin would surely be an expert in outfoxing the police. But no evidence is found linking him to a crime, and the case fades from the public’s memory, a simmering, unresolved riddle. Jane’s three children—Alex, Jeff, and Miranda—are left to be raised by the man who may have murdered their mother.
    Two decades later, the remains of Jane Larkin are found. The investigation is awakened. The children, now grown, are forced to choose sides. With their father or against him? Guilty or innocent? And what happens if they are wrong? This is a story about family—family secrets and vengeance—that grapples with a primal question: When does loyalty reach its limit?
