Deborah Harkness, Daniel Silva, & Marja Mills Debut on the Indie Bestseller List

Book of LifeWe’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending July 20, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #1 in Hardcover Fiction) The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness: “In the trilogy’s final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowledge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago.” (July 2014)

(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Fiction) The Heist by Daniel Silva: “Sometimes the best way to find a stolen masterpiece is to steal another one…”

(Debuted at #6 in Hardcover Nonfiction) The Mockingbird Next Door by Marja Mills: “In 2004, with the Lees’ blessing, Mills moved into the house next door to the sisters. She spent the next eighteen months there, sharing coffee at McDonalds and trips to the Laundromat with Nelle, feeding the ducks and going out for catfish supper with the sisters, and exploring all over lower Alabama with the Lees’ inner circle of friends.”
