There is a tavern on the Thames that is known for its storytelling. People come from far and wide to tell, and be told, stories until one night a stranger staggers in with a child in his arms. The child appears to be drowned, but is she? Who is this child and this stranger? The stories that are told about this night will mesmerize and amaze you, and keep you turning the pages to find out more. ~ Reviewed by Percy Sutton

What happens when coming of age comes with more changes than expected? A family lives in the woods, apart from their village. The parents of Liba and Laya are called away, and one sister learns a family secret right before they leave. The story combines Jewish myth with historical fiction, including the advance of the Russian Pogroms on their village. I liked how the chapters alternated between one sister writing in prose and the other writing in poetry, which helps define their characters. This story will sweep you along and keep you intrigued. ~ Reviewed by Percy Sutton
