An American Marriage (Oprah’s Book Club): A Novel (Oprah’s Book Club 2018 Selection)

I met Tayari at a booksellers' convention a few years ago. She was rather sweet and soft-spoken when seated next to me at our table, but when she got up to speak to a ballroom filled with peers and colleagues, as well as a bunch of us booksellers and publishers she blew it out of the water. This woman is fierce! And oh what a writer. If you ever have the chance to sit in an audience and listen to an author speak about why they wrote their book, their writing process, their meaning, etc. DO IT! It will change how you read. - NS

Pathfinder Pioneer: The Memoir of a Lead Bomber Pilot in World War II

“Along the way he exposes the reader not only to much detail about the air war over Europe – including hours long missions under fire – and offers many little insights into commonplaces of wartime life and military service at the time, but also to life in contemporary America and Britain, punctuated here and there with some sly humor… this is an excellent personal account of the war as seen from the cockpit of a B-17.” (NYMAS Review)

White Rose, Black Forest

“There is much to praise in Eoin Dempsey’s White Rose, Black Forest, but for me it stands out from the glut of war fiction because of its poetic simplicity. The novel does not span a massive cast of characters, various continents, and the entire duration of the conflict. It is the tale of one young man, one young woman, and the courage to change the tide of a war. Emotional, taut, and deftly drawn, White Rose, Black Forest is a stunning tale of bravery, compassion, and love.” —Aimie K. Runyan, bestselling author of Daughters of the Night Sky

And the fine line between despair and redemption Wes walks will keep you holding your breath until the very end. This is a masterful debut.” —Katherine Sherbrooke, author of Fill the Sky
