"The House of Velvet and Glass” by Katherine Howe (Voice, $25.99) Author of the bestseller “The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane,” Howe has returned with a sweeping historical tale set in Boston in 1915. Reeling from the deaths of her mother and sister, Sibyl Anderson is cloistered in an unfulfilling life until she meets with psychology professor Benton Derby to help save her brother from the sway of a mysterious woman. Mystery, romance, and spiritualism all come into play in Howe’s spellbinding storytelling.
“The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict” by Trenton Lee Stewart (Little, Brown, and Company, $17.99) Before there was a “Mysterious Benedict Society,” there was a boy named Nicholas Benedict. Nine-year-old Nicholas has more than his share of problems: Not only is he an orphan, but he suffers from narcolepsy, not to mention dealing with vicious bullies, selfish adults and strange circumstances. In this rich backstory of a beloved character, Stewart offers up all the elements that have made this series so popular.
