Violent, disturbing, provocative, thought-provoking -- this is a book you'll want to talk about. It raises fascinating philosophical questions for which there are no easy answers. I can't stop thinking about it.

If you loved "What Alice Forgot," you'll love this one too! Intriguing plot, great characters; interesting twists. The suburbs of Sydney, Australia, feel much like Glen Ellyn! Loved it!!

A beautiful story set in Chicago in the Jazz Age.  Rose wants to be a "good girl" but yearns to sing more than just church music.  Powerful story excellently told.
