The Paper Palace Audiobook by Miranda Cowley Heller

The Paper Palace (2021)

An exciting read as exhilarating as a summer night by a seashore.

Elle Bishop goes for a swim in the pond under ‘The Paper Palace’. This is her family’s vacation house on Cape Cod, on a beautiful August morning. As she descends underwater, she remembers the passionate encounter she had the previous evening while her husband and her mother were chatting with their guests on the other side of the house, the side that knows all of her deepest secrets. Last night Elle’s oldest friend, Jonas, and she sneaked out the back door into darkness and had sex for the first time, while their spouses chatted inside.

Over the next 24 hours, Elle must choose between the life she has built with her genuine love, Peter, and the one she always dreamed she’d have with her childhood love, Jonah if a tragic event didn’t forever change the course of their lives.

“A story of summer and secrets, love, and liars: in the course of one singular day on Cape Cod one woman must make a decision that has been brewing since she was a child.”

The Book Guide® Editor

As Heller draws the experiences that have led her to this day, we see her ultimate decision with all of its complexity. Tender yet devastating: The Paper Palace considers the tensions between desire and decency, the legacies of violence, and the misdeeds of families.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (2017)

This book is also fiercely and unapologetically socio-political and we love that. Evelyn’s story is one of being a woman in a man’s world. It is one of being a Cuban woman in a white woman’s world. It is one of being a bisexual woman in an era where attraction to women was demonized by the whole culture. It is one of hiding yourself for ambition, one of trying to decide which one takes precedent, one of aging, and one of never knowing whether your choices were right.
