Book: Let Me Die In His Footsteps by Lori Roy

Recommended by: Melanie

Two families, touched by an evil that has passed between generations in the Kentucky hills, led by superstition and ritual, finally come together to solve the mysteries that surround the incident that formed their hatred and shaped their lives. Spellbinding and suspenseful.

What a beautiful and lyrical novel. One of my favorites so far this year. Roy is so descriptive in her narrative that I could almost smell the dust and lavender. I see why this author has won awards for her writing and I definitely will be going back to read her earlier works.

Book: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Recommended by: Sherrie

This nonstop gripper tells the story of two British women in the armed services during World War II. The characterizations are revealed slowly in bits and glimpses, while the reader, as well as the Gestapo, try to determine what is true and what is misdirection.

The ethical dilemmas faced by the main and secondary characters will keep you questioning and the ramifications are far reaching. Join pilot Maddie, and her best friend in the mind game that is Code Name Verity.
