SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 WELLCOME BOOK PRIZE LONGLISTED FOR THE 2018 INTERNATIONAL DYLAN THOMAS PRIZE Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child.

It is a tale about the desperate attempts we make to save ourselves, and those we love, from heartbreak.

“Powerfully magnetic. . . . In the lineage of great works by Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. . . . A thoroughly contemporary—and deeply moving—portrait of a marriage.” —The New York Times Book Review Ilesa, Nigeria. Ever since they first met and fell in love at university, Yejide and Akin have agreed: polygamy is not for them. But four years into their marriage—after consulting fertility doctors and healers, and trying strange teas and unlikely cures—Yejide is still not pregnant. She assumes she still has time—until her in-laws arrive on her doorstep with a young woman they introduce as Akin’s second wife. Furious, shocked, and livid with jealousy, Yejide knows the only way to save her marriage is to get pregnant. Which, finally, she does—but at a cost far greater than she could have dared to imagine. The unforgettable story of a marriage as seen through the eyes of both husband and wife, Stay With Me asks how much we can sacrifice for the sake of family.

Johnny and Carla DiGiacomo are the hub of a big, extended, in many ways, conventional Italian American family. But less than conventional choice made early in their marriage--to take in the orphaned daughter of distant relations will test their notions of love and loyalty, as well as the sexual boundaries within which families exist. Told with earthy humor, Stay With Me, Lella is about the arrangements and rearrangements Italian Americans coped with in the years after World War II, as they began to make their way into the mainstream. Marisa Labozzetta lives with her husband and three children in Northampton, Massachusetts.

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wait for You and Be with Me comes a daring tale that pushes boundaries . . . At 21, Calla hasn't done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends. But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought shed left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming. Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s business from they moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn't give them her mom.
