The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane offers as gifts to the reader a well-drawn plot wrapped with the intricate research Lisa See is known for. I connected with her characters by way of examining family bonds, bucking cultural norms, surviving tragedy, and simply enjoying a cup of tea. This is an absorbing novel rich with culture, history, and a deep sense of shared humanity. 


Little Bee by Chris Cleave

Katie

Incredibly well-written. Little Bee and Sarah will live in the reader's memory for some time. Tnesion, questions of morality, and emotionally-charged writing are balanced by Cleave's wit and compassion. I lost sleep because of this one!

The Secret River by Margorie K. Rawlings

Reviewed by: 
Katie

"When hard times turn to soft times . . . ." Exquisitely rendered illustrations do quiet justice to a gently told, beautiful story of love, friendship, imagination, and the deep valve of helping one's neighbors.

This book has more twists and turns than a European street. Stylish, elegant, and perfectly paced, The Expats will keep you guessing. Deception, suspicion, secrets, and lies all set against the sleek, chic back-drop of Luxembourg. I loved it!
