Girl Gone Mad by Avery Bishop

Girl Gone Mad by Avery BishopThey say everything is fun and games until someone gets hurt. Well, someone did—and now the game has changed…

Emily Bennett works as a therapist in Pennsylvania, helping children overcome their troubled pasts—even as she struggles to forget her own. Once upon a time, Emily was part of a middle school clique called the Harpies—six popular girls who bullied the new girl to her breaking point.

The Harpies took a blood oath: never tell a soul what they did to Grace Farmer.

Now, fourteen years later, it seems karma has caught up to them when one member of that vicious circle commits suicide. But when a second Harpy is discovered dead shortly after, also from apparent suicide, the deaths start to look suspicious. And when Emily starts seeing a woman who looks a lot like Grace Farmer lurking in the shadows, she’s forced to wonder: Is Grace back for revenge? Or is Emily’s guilt driving her mad?

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but the Harpies are about to find out just how much words can hurt you.

Amora by Grant J. Hallstrom

Amora by Grant J. Hallstrom“If she prefers to lie in a tomb instead of my bed, I cannot stop her,” the stern patrician declared.

Explore the path to redemption, forgiveness and healing as we witness the characters in Grant Hallstrom’s novel, Amora, struggle with their pains of loss and betrayal, the burden of guilt, and the drive for revenge.

This engaging historic epic is based on the true story of the noblewoman who inspired Justin Martyr’s petition to the Roman Senate, and is a story of sacrifice, a sweeping action-adventure and a moving examination of spirituality and faith.

Executive reviews:

“This is a powerful story that will, unquestionably, resonate with people of faith, but has enough universal appeal to find a home with crossover readers as well.”

“The core concept of the novel feels like Christian forgiveness on a collision course with revenge.”

“The ideas of vengeance and forgiveness as two sides of a coin is a really compelling underlying motif for this novel.”

“I loved the inexorable pull of vengeance and betrayal pulling on all the characters. Knowing that the merciless hand of fate is moving towards Leo, creates the kind of delicious tension that drives stories in this genre.”

“The novel does a great job zooming out for the big picture but also being able to really focus in on intimate human details and moments with these characters.”

“The blending of several distinct and quite separate storylines come together very well and provide an emotionally satisfying end to the book.”

Christie Tate had just been named the top student in her law school class and finally had her eating disorder under control. Why then was she driving through Chicago fantasizing about her own death?

Enter Dr. Rosen, a therapist who calmly assures her that if she joins one of his psychotherapy groups, he can transform her life. All she has to do is show up and be honest. About everything—her eating habits, childhood, sexual history, etc. Christie is skeptical, insisting that that she is defective, beyond cure. But Dr. Rosen issues a nine-word prescription that will change everything: “You don’t need a cure, you need a witness.”

So begins her entry into the strange, terrifying, and ultimately life-changing world of group therapy. Christie is initially put off by Dr. Rosen’s outlandish directives, but as her defenses break down and she comes to trust Dr. Rosen and begins to understand what it means to connect.

Group is a deliciously addictive read, and with Christie as our guide—skeptical of her own capacity for connection and intimacy, but hopeful in spite of herself—we are given a front row seat to the daring, exhilarating, painful, and hilarious journey that is group therapy—an under-explored process that breaks you down, and then reassembles you so that all the pieces finally fit.
