Suspense | Women's Fiction

A breathtakingly poignant novel of suspense from one of fiction's newest leading voices.

From bestselling author and Quill award nominee Pam Jenoff comes a rich, ambitious, and startling novel about a woman who must face a past she'd rather forget in order to uncover a dangerous legacy that threatens her future.

Ten years ago, American Jordan Weiss's idyllic experience as a graduate student and coxswain at Cambridge was shattered when her boyfriend and fellow crewmember, Jared Short, drowned in the River Cam the night before the biggest race of the year. Since that time, Jordan, a State Department intelligence officer, has traveled the world on dangerous assignments but has managed to avoid returning to face her painful memories in England. When her terminally ill friend Sarah asks her to come to London, though, Jordan finds herself requesting a transfer to the one place she swore she'd never go again.

In London, Jordan attempts to settle into her new life, pushing aside her haunting memories and taking on an urgent mission beside rakish agent Sebastian Hodges. Shortly after her arrival, just when she thinks there's hope for a fresh start in England, she is approached by a former college classmate who makes a startling assertion. He tells her that Jared's death was not an accident, but that he was murdered.

Jordan quickly learns that Jared's death was indeed not an accident, and that his research on World War II had uncovered a shameful secret. But powerful forces with everything to lose will stop at nothing to keep the past buried. Soon, Jordan finds herself in grave peril as she struggles to find the answers that lie treacherously close to home, the truth that threatens to change her life forever, and the love that makes it all worth fighting for.

It is a journey that sweeps readers across England and back in time to reveal the incalculable dangers that lie in the wake of war. Fast-paced and impossible to put down, Almost Home establishes Pam Jenoff as one of the best new writers in the genre.

Re: Almost Home

I'm on a VERY tight budget and I try to buy as many books as I can because I donate them all to a the local state-run nursing home, so I prefer paperbacks because they're cheaper and I get more for my money.
(Donna Holmberg 1:46am March 24, 2010)

I prefer mass-market paperbacks. I can stuff them into my bag or backpack more easily.

Most of my reading for pleasure is done in bed late at night. But paperbacks are easier to handle if, at the same time, I'm cuddling one of my cats.

I prefer paperbacks but buy some keeper books in hardback, too.
(

Yes. Basically, if I've been anxiously waiting for the next book in a series, I'll take it any way I can get it. Otherwise, paper is fine, whether it's a TB or an MMB, which do fit in my purse better than the TB's do, I must admit!

Later,

As a reader, I prefer the trade size paperback. They are easier on my arhritic hands and the print is easier on the eyes....Gads I'm getting old....But I do love to collect some of my all time favorites in hardcover for my bookshelf.
(

I prefer paperbacks both the mass & trade sizes. I have a handful of hardcover books & I got them on sale everytime...they are just too expensive for me to justify buying one book at a price when I could get 2 or more for the same cost.
(

At home I like hardbacks, but when on the go, like the light weight of paperbacks. As a teen, I took a lot of books on my first backpack trip. After about an hour, my shoulders were groaning and those hard books got farmed out to everybody else, so we could get on with the hike. I've never forgotten the trip or how "heavy" books can be.
(

If I am collecting & intend to keep a series I buy hardback. Otherwise paperback satisfies.
(
Mary Preston 4:58pm March 24, 2010)

Like them both, but paperbacks are easier to read while you are eating. TeeHee!
(
Kelli Jo Calvert 5:10pm March 24, 2010)

Either one is ok with me. Just as long as I get the books I want to read! LOL
(

Soft is easier for me to hold, whether riding in the car, soaking in the tub, or resting.
(
Karin Tillotson 6:45pm March 24, 2010)

Like others here, I'm on a very tight budget, but I also have too little space. That means that my shelves have to be set so that they will just accommodate regular paperbacks. I'll often read a book in hardcover when it first comes out and then get a keeper paperback. In addition I have problems with my hands and a paperback is lighter to hold.

MMP- I can two of them for the
price of a trade size and
almost 4 of them for the price
of a HB. I don't reread or
keep them. I pass them on so I
go with the MMP
or buy them used if only available as a HB or trade
size.
(
Lisa Richards 9:26pm March 24, 2010)

I prefer mm paperbacks, cause of the price!! I will by trade-size pbs, tho. Hardcovers, I try to get from the library!!
(
Martha Lawson 9:40pm March 24, 2010)

What is the difference between a trade paperback and a norman paperback? I like paperback books, but am unfamiliar with the prior one.
(
Gladys Paradowski 10:30pm March 24, 2010)

I usually like the paperback since it will fit easily in my purse. But if a book is coming out in hardback by one of my autobuys and I know that it will be at least 6 months I will buy it. I have no patience in waiting to see what happens in a story.
(
Cindy Olp 12:11pm March 25, 2010)

I prefer mass market paperback because they take up less space, but will get trade size if that's what comes out first. There are only three authors I read that I will buy in hardcover. And that's only because they changed to hardcover well into the series and I don't want to wait the extra year to get the story.
