A wild ride of revenge and mending broken hearts, along an expansive Route 66 road trip. Told in alternating timelines and perspectives, we have a front row seat to the devastating consequences of jealousy and miscommunications; however, we also see the power of loyalty and family ties; even after years of hardship and pain, we know who we can turn to at the day’s end. Filled with great musical references and compelling characters, this is a great read for fans of historical fiction.

In the Face of the Sun

Books | Denny S. Bryce

A wonderfully touching love story filled with self acceptance, healing, and striving to be the change we wish to see in our society. The idea of marvels and oddities is clever, engaging, and brilliantly shows how the simplest, to the most complex details of living, are a wonder that we should more often stop and savor. This is not just a love story of romance; it is a love story for parents, friends, faith, and to oneself. Refreshing and so very relevant. I can’t wait for the sequel!

Love from A to Z

Books | S. K. Ali

A deeply dark and twisted tale of obsession, control, and morbid desire and codependency. Outrageous and over the top, yet strangely alludes to modern culture’s attraction to the macabre, to the anguish of others. Certainly not for everyone, but an interesting read for horror fans.

Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke

Books | Eric LaRocca

An intense and whimsical novel of misunderstandings, injustice, imagination, and resilience. Told in thoughtful and dreamy prose, we have a novel that is not only a portal into the past, but also an unfortunate nod to modern mob mentalities and conflict-centered culture. Our protagonist is endearing and sympathetic, a symbol of bravery and self assurance in a world where our every move and intention is questioned.

Books | Rivka Galchen

A dark, sensual drama of secrets and love lost. Told in alternating times and points of view we see the damage that unkept promises cause, the consequences of lust, loyalty, honor. Filled with anger and resolve, this novel attests to the power of words and vows, to love and the quest of justice and freedom.

Books | Beatriz Williams

A colorful, all-encompassing interpretation of one of the most intriguing women in history. Through phenomenal research, we journey with Cleopatra through her triumphs, tragedies, loves, and betrayals. We see her not only as a queen, a goddess incarnate, but as a mortal woman, with faults and feelings, fantasies and failures. Romantic and reflective, we can ponder the accomplishments and ambitions of Cleopatra in a new light; this novel helps show us a side of her that is more than pure legend.

Books | Myriam J. A. Chancy

A deeply moving series of reflections on grief, trauma, want, and hope. Striking and unflinching, with the disjointed rhythm of despair and small joys, of silence and optimism. Beautifully respectful of healing and self awareness.

Tides

Books | Sara Freeman

A hard-hitting novel on survival, justice, and heroism in World War II. Reflective and emotional, we follow our characters as their relationships are broken down and built back up, as they make impossible decisions in the face of oppression, and as they put their nation, their neighbors, their morals above their own safety.
