“..we are all ultimately unreliable storytellers of our own lives, whether we wish it so or not…” This is a heartrending novel of family secrets, of discovering those you love are not always as you believe them to be, or even as they believed themselves to be. Intertwined with these discoveries is also a searing exploration of what it means to be an immigrant trying to both assimilate into the new and to hold onto the past. Beautifully written, you will be thinking about these people long after you have heard their stories. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
An amazing tale of the overlooked WWII heroine Virginia Hall, a young American in the service of the British SOE and later the American OSS under Wild Bill Donovan. Hall, at a time when women weren’t allowed on front line combat, almost single-handedly pioneered secret warfare deep in Nazi territory; recruiting spies, directing guerilla warfare and equipping the French Resistance. A marvelous, illuminating look at one facet of newly developing covert warfare and of the woman with a wooden leg, the “Madonna of the Mountains” who never gave up, even after betrayal and a harrowing escape over the Pyrenees. Mesmerizing! ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap

WOW. What a wild, tumultuous and disturbing ride. Set against a backdrop of a depraved, putrid and venal 18th c. Stockholm, this is a dark, intricately written literary mystery of two men trying to solve a heinous and brutal murder. As they slowly learn the bitter impetus of the crime they must come to terms as well with Man’s inhumanity to Man and attempt to rectify it somewhat. NOT for the weak at heart, this novel stays with one long after it has been finished. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
An eerie mix of normal police procedural and fairy tale, this unusual tale is of a new mother of identical twins who may, or may not, have been abducted. This story brought me back to the uncertain first days of motherhood where everything was both exhilarating and extremely frightening...and often left me wondering about my own sanity. You’ll be hooked from the first page and find yourself racing to the conclusion. Definitely unsettling! ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
