The American Bride by Karla Darcy: “Cara continually falls under the scrutiny of Julian who despite his married state can’t take his eyes off the woman he doesn’t know is his bride.  She infuriates him and yet he finds his life and the lives of his wards are totally involved with this American upstart.” (November 2012)

Desperado’s Wife: A Memoir by Amy Friedman: “Suburban raised and Ivy League educated, Amy Friedman is an American writer living in Ontario, Canada. A minor celebrity, she writes a newspaper column about whatever pleases her–subjects as far flung as life on the sheep farm she shares with her lover; South African apartheid; good bourbon; flying a Cessna. Her life seems charmed. Then one day a local prison volunteer challenges her to write about the prisons that surround her adopted city.” (November 2012)

Moon Over Donamorgh by Marlene Dotterer: “In 1803, Ireland is firmly under the thumb of British rule, torn with the ongoing turmoil between Protestant and Catholic. In this fractious climate, Seamus Firnan of Donamorgh secretly leads the people of his estate in the worship of an ancient goddess, practicing rites that were in place millennia before Christianity invaded the island. Sworn to the Goddess since his birth, Seamus is a Protector: one who guards the nearby forest, home to fairies and other magical creatures.” (December 2012)
