Till she becomes a governess in her childhood house and meets her new master Mr. Charles Thornfield. They both have things to hide but can you start building a new relationship based on lies and dark deeds of the past?

All The Single Ladies: UnMarried Women And The Rise of Independent Nation
by Rebecca Traister
This is not a novel but a research about the twenty-first century phenomenon of the American single woman. However, it appers that this is not the first time when women in America decide to stay single or marry much later in their lifes. This results in a lot of significant changes of everyday life.

by Amy Hatvany
This novel is for those who tend to explain one's adult behaviour or style of living by blaming childhood experience. Two sisters separated in the early childhood grew up apart under different childhood circumstances: one adopted in a new family, the other - in numerous state facilities. They reunite after thirty five years. Amy Hatvany's characters are skillfully crafted to navigate through perpetual existential questions of whether we are what we are because of our early experiences incurred.
by Melissa Broder
If you are sad today, read it. Maybe the essays written by a poet and the Twitter account creator Melissa Broder won't cheer you up but will definitely distract you from your own sadness. The gripping themes of sex, death, love, low self-esteem, addiction, etc. mixed up with the author's humor might help you to find your place in this crazy modern world.

What might draw people to each other, how to survive loneliness or resist it? The author explores the topic by means of art.
by Chris Pavone
