Part memoir, part history, Lauret Savoy is a Geology Professor who writes beautifully using palimpsest as a leitmotif, peeling back the layers of history written on the landscape--what gets remembered, what gets forgotten, and how if affects us all. ~ Reviewed by Percy Sutton
McGuire uses time as a way to show one place in various eras, even eons. It is a graphic novel with few words that gives perspective on our place in the world and how place is shaped by the passing of time. ~ Reviewed by Percy Sutton
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
