Eight new novels that have a travel theme

At Condé Nast Traveler, Marisa Meltzer tagged eight new reads "that will transport you across the globe," including:
We Shall Not All Sleep by Estep Nagy

Seven Island is such a small island off the coast of Maine that it has only two houses: one occupied by the Hillsinger family and the other by the Quicks. Set over three days in the summer of 1964, the two patrician families are dealing with the anniversary of a death, an actual spy in their midst, and children running way too wild. And then there are the servants, who are preparing for a farming ritual called the Migration. Could the politics and culture clashes of the Cold War era play out on one tiny island?
Read about the other entries on the list.

The Page 69 Test: We Shall Not All Sleep.
