  1. The Eight Sister by Robert Dugoni

    I couldn’t put this book down, and neither could my husband! Takes place in the Northwest, our neighborhood, and begins with a ex-CIA operative being called on to take on a project. A growing family and shaky business could use the money. But events intercede, bringing family at risk and the whole mission at risk. The ending deals with playing things safe, or doing what is morally the right thing to do. It was a nail biter until the very end, and mirrors politics and the justice system.


  2. “No Friend but the Mountains” by Behrouz Boochani

    Boochani is a Kurdish author who tried to escape to Australia, but was instead imprisoned in a detention camp on an island. This is his debut book. Since Pres. Trump decided to abandon the Kurds, this book is a powerful reminder of the suffering of refugees. Boochani wrote the whole book on a smartphone he borrowed in prison, emailed it one paragraph or page at a time, and was awarded Australia’s highest prize for literature. This is the power of words!


  3. The Unpassing by Chia-Chia Lin

    A stunner! A Taiwanese family immigrates to the Alaskan wilderness. The harsh climate is contrasted by sibling love and Lin’s lyrical prose. Emotions run deep in this rather suspenseful novel that floats off the pages. The ending is perfect to set this book into the realm of a prize-winning debut novel.
