A stunning Civil War historical fiction, about the famous soldier Richard Etheridge, a sergeant in the newly formed African Brigade, tasked with rooting out guerilla rebels in eastern North Carolina. An extremely personal and human account of this period of our history, which also brilliantly manages to remind the reader that so many of these issues of racism and inequality continue to this day. I loved this book. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden

A big, loud, colorful opinionated Irish family centers around Kate, the middle sister who is now in her 40's and getting over a divorce as a result of the trauma of losing a baby. It was messy and heartbreaking but she seems to have been (mostly) able to move. She's also a recovering addict, working as a counselor in an addiction facility, and has met someone new. She seems to have been able to put her life back together until her ex shows up in Ireland for a funeral and they are reconnected after six years. Will they get back together? A fun book with quirky characters and contemporary life issues with familiar, and not-so-familiar family dynamics. ~ Reviewed by Jen Grigsby
