The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Joe Jackson’s Atlantic Fever: Lindbergh, His Competitors, and Five Deadly Weeks in the Race to Conquer the Atlantic, set during five incredibly tense weeks in the Spring of 1927, one of those magical time windows in history opened in which daredevils on both sides of the Atlantic were all on the cusp of being the first to cross the ocean in solo flight - a time fraught with danger, death, innovation, larger than life personalities, and a little-known pilot who would beat them all to change history.

The Pit:

Jen Hatmaker’s Out of the Spin Cycle: Devotions to Lighten Your Mother Load, offering forty things Jesus doesn’t expect moms to do on their own; a devotional for the woman inside the mom — the Bible student, the learner, the world changer.
