But Broken Harbor holds memories for Scorcher, and working this case could resurrect something he thought he had tightly under control.

THE SANDCASTLE GIRLS by Chris Bohjalian (Historical Fiction)

THE SANDCASTLE GIRLS, Chris Bohjalian's 15th book, is a spellbinding tale that travels between Aleppo, Syria, in 1915 and Bronxville, New York, in 2012 --- a sweeping historical love story steeped in the author’s Armenian heritage, a subject his legions of fans have been asking him to write about for years.

THE ROOTS OF THE OLIVE TREE by Courtney Miller Santo (Fiction)

Meet the Keller family, five generations of firstborn women --- a line of daughters unbroken --- living together in the same house on a secluded olive grove in the Sacramento Valley of Northern California. Told from varying viewpoints, Courtney Miller Santo’s debut novel captures the joys and sorrows of family --- the love, secrets, disappointments, jealousies and forgiveness that tie generations to one other.




  1. The Roots of The Olive Tree looks really good. I love family sagas so I hope my library has it in the system.

  2. It does sound good. It won't be out in paperback until the end of the month...the library should have it in hardcover. Hope you enjoy it..let me know..
