Painted Horses by Malcolm Brooks came from Grove Atlantic.
I had a geology professor who maintained that the word dam(n) should always be a four letter word so I am very interested in this novel about 1950s America, an archeologist working on a damming project, and a man living in the canyon that's going to be flooded.
Euphoria by Lily King came from Atlantic Monthly Press.

An Untamed State by Roxane Gay came from Black Cat.
This tale of a Haitian American woman who lives a life of privilege before she is kidnapped by a group who resents everything she represents has been highly lauded already and I know I'll turn to it when I need a heart pounding read.
Marching to Zion by Mary Glickman came from Open Road.
The story of both an interracial and interfaith love in the close of the 1910s in America, this book should capture an inflammatory time and carry the reader along.

About two children linked by tragedy trying to grow up and put their past behind them, this sounds phenomenal.
