The Portable Veblen - Elizabeth McKenzie

In this whimsical novel we meet a young couple on the brink of marriage in contemporary northern California. Our protagonist is the eponymous Veblen, an endearing if slightly eccentric (she talks to squirrels) woman who has long been under the thumb of her hypochondriac mother. Her fiance Paul is an ambitious doctor, in every way the antithesis of his hippie parents. Together, they have enough family dysfunction to potentially derail their happy ending. This book is an insightful and satisfying portrayal of contemporary marriage and the necessity of shedding the ghosts of your past in order to build a shared future.

Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy - Karen Abbott

The latest book from historian Karen Abbott, Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy, tells the true story of four spies during the American Civil War. Two of the women spied for the Confederacy and two spied for the Union. These women were some of the most successful intelligence gatherers during the war, often ignored and underestimated by men on both sides of the conflict. Abbott's portrayal of their exploits reads as smoothly as any espionage thriller, tracking the women as they employed creative methods to covertly obtain and transmit information, in some instances narrowly avoiding detection and capture.
