Jean's "5 Best of 2020"
This wonderful story begins in Brooklyn, then jumps the pond and takes you on a fantastical journey through Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast.
How far a mother will go to protect her children. Revenge.
The stunning story behind a famous artist. The harshness of her life finally revealed. Secrets keep even from her family.
A strong young girl is forced into a marriage with a much older man. All she ever really desires is an education. I devoured this important novel of Nigerian domestic slavery. Adunni is the strongest and bravest young woman I've come across in a long, long time.
A smart beachy read full of edgy characters and suspense. A young woman inherits her mother's bookshop in San Francisco. All the inner workings of an independent store. And some romance.
