cvrThe River’s Memory by Sandra Gail Lambert (2014)
“‘Time is a river.’ Lambert uses this rusty literary device with freshness and passion while employing within it another device, convincingly drawing readers to Florida river life, reaching back 10,000 years ago, then flowing to the present via women’s first-person stories. Lovingly crafted details abound, succinctly revelatory of women’s lives: . . . Lambert portrays many mesmerizing characters over the centuries whose lives entwine with that of the river.” — Whitney Scott, Booklist

Take a few moments with a family photograph album

cvrEver Yrs by Nance Van Winckel (2014)
. . .the [photograph] album (digital or otherwise) is a collection of photos, but it is also a collage of the people who came before us, or representations of ourselves at various times and places somewhere in the past—a glimpse of a prior time that we can recall because of the proof in our hands. Van Winckel’s novel is an ode to this otherwise lost expression of family. But, more than that, Ever Yrs is the family album we have always wanted to read because it is directly addressed to a person of the future from a person of the past. –Jacqueline Kharouf, Colorado State University
