Wicked by Gregory
Wicked is the book that started it all! The basis
for the smash hit Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Gregory Maguire's
breathtaking New York Times bestseller Wicked offers us a

In this haunting and richly imagined dual-narrative tale,
two women of very different eras are united by the secrets hidden within the
walls of an English manor house.
In 1933, naive twenty-two year-old
Alice—pregnant and unmarried—is in disgrace. Her mother banishes her from London

any other nobleman—she can't help but incite him to walk on the wild
Maddie Townsend might live in a town called Serenity but
there's been nothing calm or peaceful about her life since her marriage broke
up. This stay-at-home mom has no job skills, an out-of-control sixteen-year-old
son, a talkative fourteen-year-old who's suddenly gone silent, a six-year-old
daughter whose heart is broken, an ex-husband whose younger girlfriend is
expecting their baby and two best friends who think she's somehow qualified to
help them open a fitness spa for women.
In February 1966, Dieter Dengler
was shot down over "neutral" Laos in territory controlled by Pathet Lao
guerrillas and North Vietnamese regulars. After his capture, the German-born
Dengler proved to be no ordinary prisoner. Already a legend in the navy for his
unique escape skills, which he had demonstrated during survival training in the
California desert, he found himself caught in a desperate situation, imprisoned
by the enemy and by the jungle itself....
