2 New Books about Life after WWII

by Susan Roberts

There are so many WWII era books that it always amazes when someone writes a book from a perspective that I haven't read before.  I recently read two new books that look at WWII in the years following the war.  A Quiet Genocide takes place in Amsterdam and is about the after-effect of the war on a family.  The Lonely Tree takes place as the Jewish people attempt to establish the country of Israel after the war.

Solace Island by Meg Tilly ~ a Review

by MK French

Maggie was dumped the day before her wedding, so she retreats to Solace Island in the Pacific Northwest with her sister Eve. She doesn't need Eve trying to fix her up with their neighbor Luke, even if he is really handsome and the two click almost immediately. She absolutely doesn't need the black vehicle trying to run her down in the middle of town or the feeling that she's being followed, as well as discovering there's more to Luke than she thought.

The voting may be over for The Great American Read, but we are still discussing books from the list. My post-apocalyptic book club chose to read The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood for its November meeting (all the library book clubs chose books from the list and thanks to a grant the library was able to purchase the books for the members). I volunteered to lead the discussion. Below is the guide I created and some of my thoughts on the book.
