The hallowed halls of Yale University hide a dark underbelly. The secret societies are more than just boys’ clubs for the rich and privileged, hosting occult practices and ancient magic that outsiders can’t fathom. So sinister are their origins that the Ninth House was created to monitor their behaviors and keep hidden bizarre and ethereal rituals. Alex Stern, a high school dropout with a full ride to the university to manage the elite members with a unique, unspeakable talent. Perhaps in over her head, Alex discovers that there’s more to these groups then hazing and parties.

After devouring the typical prenatal reads, Angela Garbes still had questions. Why is my body doing this? Why is society telling me not to do that? It’s easy for onlookers to judge the occasional glass of wine but most can’t understand the turmoil of a miscarriage, ruptured birth plan, or lost sense of self. Diving into these issues, Garbes captures the triumphs and defeats of those experiencing pregnancy and motherhood. From the elation (or trauma) of the pink strip, to the challenges of returning to work, this must-read book focuses on the mother as a human, and not simply a vessel.
