Ben Macintyre & Rachel Joyce Debut on the Indie Bestseller List

We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending August 5, 2012–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Nonfiction) Double Cross: The True Story of D-Day Spies by Ben Macintyre: “The story of D-Day has been told from the point of view of the soldiers who fought in it, the tacticians who planned it, and the generals who led it. But this epic event in world history has never before been told from the perspectives of the key individuals in the Double Cross System.” (July 2012)

(Debuted at #7 in Hardcover Fiction) The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce: “Still in his yachting shoes and light coat, Harold embarks on his urgent quest across the countryside. Along the way he meets one fascinating character after another, each of whom unlocks his long-dormant spirit and sense of promise. Memories of his first dance with Maureen, his wedding day, his joy in fatherhood, come rushing back to him—allowing him to also reconcile the losses and the regrets. As for Maureen, she finds herself missing Harold for the first time in years.” (July 2012)
