The Second Life of Mirielle West is the story of a ‘20 socialite, Mirielle, who gets diagnosed with leprosy. Nowadays, this disease is treatable with antibiotics; back then, it still carried a huge social stigma, meaning that patients were just carted off to special hospitals. Mirielle ends up in one of them, a Louisiana military facility named Carville, away from her husband and her daughters. From then on, her life will never be the same.

Yay Southern Gothic! It’s one of my (many) favorite genres, so I couldn’t pass up the chance to read The Farmhouse at Peace and Plenty. Said Farmhouse is the place where Jenny and Kyle, a couple who’s trying to fix their own marriage, rent for the summer. Clear-cut, right? Well, not really, no.
