The Girl from Oto

by Amy Maroney

How far would you go to unveil a 500-year-old secret? American Zari Durrell scores a coveted post-doctorate position in Scotland, researching the life and work of portrait artist Cornelia van der Zee. But when Zari decodes clues hidden in two sixteenth-century portraits attributed to Van der Zee, she unearths the traces of another artist entirely: a mysterious young woman named Mira. Obsessed, Zari tracks Mira along the pilgrim’s route of Camino de Santiago in the rugged Pyrenees mountains—and plunges deep into the past. The harrowing tale of Mira herself unfolds as Zari’s quest to uncover the truth intensifies. Born in the Pyrenees during a time wracked by war, plague, and shifting political boundaries, Mira grows up in a convent believing she is an orphan, unaware of the dark secret in her past. When her peaceful existence is shattered, Mira risks everything to learn the truth about her origins—and confront those who would destroy her.

The Devil Take Tomorrow

by Gretchen Jeannette

George Washington has been marked for death. British agents embedded in the Continental Army wait only for the order to strike. Racing against time, rebel spy Ethan Matlock sets out to protect the one man who can save the Revolution. Without General Washington, the whole American enterprise might easily collapse, for no one else has demonstrated the ability to keep together an army that constantly threatens to fall apart. Boldly Ethan infiltrates the heart of the British military, occupiers of grand old Philadelphia, where elegant officers posture in drawing rooms and frolic in the bedrooms of the rich. Surrounded by twenty thousand redcoats, aware that the slightest misstep could lead to the gallows, Ethan resorts to vicious measures to unravel a conspiracy of power-hungry men. Against his better judgment, he becomes entangled with the provocative Miss Maddie Graves, whose fierce devotion to the American cause ironically threatens his mission.
