A powerful and enlightening book about a Nigerian woman's life in her homeland and as an immigrant in the U.S.  Richly drawn characters, meticulous observations about race, and a thouching love sotry all masterfully told.  There are many good books about the immigrant experience available, but this is my favorite.

ISBN: 9781616205041
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Algonquin Books - August 22nd, 2017

Story of a young intern who 13 years ago had an affair with her congressman boss and how he came out unscathed but her life was shattered (sound familiar?).  The story of how her life progresses cleverly unfolds through the eyes of the intern, her mother, her daughter and the wife of the congressman.  Each character’s voice is distinct and moves the story along.  This is a smart, feminist tour de force about feminine power and shame.  The book has a complicated and very well executed structure with lovely and lively prose.  I am a big fan!

When a mysterious figure appears on the village green on a cold November day in Three Pines, Armand Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec, knows something is seriously wrong. Yet he does nothing. Legally, what can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized. In her latest utterly gripping book, Louise Penny shatters the conventions of the crime novel to explore what Gandhi called the court of conscience. A court that supersedes all others.


Since We Fell Cover Image
$27.99
ISBN: 9780062129383

Published: Ecco Press - May 9th, 2017

Gripping story of a journalist whose apparently ideal life begins to fray after a chance encounter on a rainy afternoon. This novel is by turns heart- breaking, suspenseful, romantic, and sophisticated, Since We Fell is a novel of profound psychological insight and tension. Lots of unexpected twists and turns kept me engaged and guessing until the very end.
