Angels Carry the Sun by Phoebe Wilcox: “A coming-of-age story with a bite, Flora McDermott’s sojourn is of the rudiments that persist in the human heart–dreams, memory, love, and family, and the ever-mysterious and mutable definition of self.” (September 2010)

Kettle of Vultures by Sabrina Lamb: “Iris Chapman returns home on the day of her brother’s controversial wedding. Not unlike the kettle of low-flying vultures convening over the plane she is boarding, we are lead on a humorous journey as Iris navigates along the path of survival from the onslaught of vulturous characters in her life.” (October 2010)

1923: A Memoir by Harry Leslie Smith: “1923: A Memoir presents the story of a life lyrically described, capturing a time both before and during World War II when personal survival was dependent upon luck and guile. During this time, failure insured either a trip to the workhouse or burial in a common grave.” (November 2010)
