Trish and Jess start with a chat about what else they've been reading recently, which included Joe Hill's newest novel, BuzzFeed articles, and essays about the Polyvagal Theory. They move on to talk about the powerful heartbreak of Toni Morrison's "Beloved." They qualify when they are willing to accept unbelievable circumstances in books and what makes a book feel hopeless. They end with a Top 5 list of other books that broke their hearts. Next month, Jess's dad guest stars for Father's Day to talk about one of his favorite books, "The Poisonwood Bible," by Barbara Kingsolver.
