"I get an urge, like a pregnant elephant, to go away and give birth to a book." STEPHEN FRY
Set on the shores of Lake Superior, this intricate family saga is beautifully written. Doe the reading world need more lighthouse stories? Yes, if it's this one!
Richardson's engaging novel is a tribute to the 1930s Kentucky Pack Horse Library. Cussy Mary Carter, Troublesome's traveling librarian, is also one of the Kentucy blue-skinned people. A solid book group selection.
Lombardo's amazing first novel had me reading into the wee hours. The Sorenson family is one I'll never forget. I love the cover art, too.
Once in awhile a novel comes along that absolutely enchants me. I love Harry and his unique friends (including his trees). I totally agree with Debbie McComber who says the book "is worth its weight in gold".
Once again Boyne has written an amazing novel. This time his centeral character is a writer who will do anything to succeed. Excellent!
Choo's memerizing novel, set in 1930s Malaysia, is a rich and hautning story that follows the journeys of Ren, an 11-year-old houseoy; and Ji Lin, a young seamstress/dance hall girl. Such a wonderful piece of work!
Hooper's lyrical prose sets off this story set in a Newfoundland fishing village where all the fish have disappeared. A fascinating novel!
Excellent novel set after the Civil War about a girl's school and its unusual inhabitants. Those trilling heart birds are the oddest creatures I've come across in a novel. Love the cover design. Deep and rich, a novel that will be perfect for reading groups who want something different in their repertoire.
Great adventure book with some monsters thrown in along the way. Fans of Preston/Child books should enjoy it. I almost read it in one sitting!
A sassy and fun gay romance! I read it in one sitting. Loved it! So did Bookseller Chloe.
I loved this novel set in New York in the 1950s about the mounting of a Broadway muscial starring a white actress and a black actor. There should have been an original cast album with this fine book!
What a fine novel! Set in 1924 South Carolina about three strong women uniting to stand up to injustices in their small town.
A heartfelt novel about how postpartum depression affects a mother and her daughter. A strong family story.
A witty and moving story about a gay man who goes back East to help out his ex-wife run her Airbnb.
