It started with an itch--first on her feet, then migrating up her legs--like a thousand mosquito bites. Then came the exhaustion, and the six-hour naps that only seemed to deepen her fatigue. Then came a trip to the doctor and, a few weeks shy of her twenty-third birthday, a diagnosis: leukemia, with a 35 percent chance of survival. Just like that, the life she had imagined for herself was engulfed in flames. By time she boarded a plane home to New York, she had lost her job, her apartment, and her independence. She would spend much of the next four years confined to a hospital bed, fighting for her life.
When Suleika finally walked out of the hospital--after three and a half years of chemo, a clinical trial, and a bone marrow transplant--she was, according to the doctors, "cured." But as she would soon learn, a cure is not where the work of healing ends; it's where it begins. She had spent the past 1,500 days in desperate pursuit of one goal--to survive. And now that she'd done so, she realized she had no idea how to live.
Suleika embarked--with her new best friend, Oscar, a scruffy terrier mutt--on a 100-day, 15,000-mile road trip across the country. What she learned on this trip is that the divide between the sick and the well doesn't really exist. It is porous, and the vast majority of us will travel back and forth between these realms throughout our lives.
Enter to win The Knife Thrower's Wife, an unputdownable, twisty, dark, and unexpectedly humorous thriller.
Illustrator Julia Green thinks she's living the dream in suburban Houston, until she has sleepwalking nightmares featuring her husband as a knife thrower with scantily clad Julia strapped to his target. And Austin's aim is regrettably poor.
Along with the nightmares she also has wild and funny daydreams. Wondering what her subconscious is trying to tell her, she paints and analyzes her dreamscapes. Soon, as Julia questions her lifestyle and state of mind, she exhumes present and past betrayals and secrets, and realizes that her friend, Trix, is correct -- that she's been a mushroom -- kept in the dark and fed shit.
When an unexpected tragedy occurs, Julia becomes the focus of the media and police, and she must cast off her submissive persona, find inner strength, and navigate treacherous waters to her long-overdue awakening.
From FOREWORD/CLARION REVIEWS:

Visual lines show how Julia feels "tiny, hairy centipede feet of fear" and capture her house as "a domestic detention unit".
From bestselling author Sariah Wilson comes a charming romance about living your life one dream at a time.
Madison Huntington is determined to live her dreams. That means getting out from under her family’s wealth and influence by saying no to the family business, her allowance, and her home. But on a teacher’s salary, the real world comes as a rude awakening—especially when she wakes up every morning on a colleague’s couch. To get a place of her own (without cockroaches, mold, or crime scene tape), Madison accepts a position as a roommaid. In exchange for free room and board, all she needs to do is keep her busy roommate’s penthouse clean and his dog company. So what if she’s never washed a dish in her life. She can figure this out, right?
Madison is pretty confident she can fake it well enough that Tyler Roth will never know the difference. The finance whiz is rich and privileged and navigates the same social circles as her parents—but to him she’s just a teacher in need of an apartment. He’s everything Madison has run from, but his kindhearted nature, stomach-fluttering smile, and unexpected insecurities only make her want to get closer. And Tyler is warming to the move.
Rewarding job. Perfect guy. Great future. With everything so right, what could go wrong? Madison is about to find out.
