I don't read a lot of "suspense" novels, but this one is amazing. Here's why.

The Stranger in the House: A Review of Ten White Geese

"This is suspense at its most spare. A psychological screw – familiar but unnamed, liberating but fatalistic – cranks tighter with every paragraph..."

Ben Franklin wrote more letters to his baby sister than he wrote to anyone else. And she did some writing of her own, while raising 12 children and numerous grandchildren, managing a business, and dodging British soldiers. Learn more about Jane's obscure but remarkable story in my latest review for +The Discarded Image. 

Book of Ages: The Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin
New #Nonfiction #BookReview

"What would it mean to write the history of an age not only from what has been saved but also from what has been lost? What would it mean to write a history concerned not only with the lives of the famous but also with the lives of the obscure?These are the questions that led Harvard historian Jill Lepore to dig into the personal history of Jane Franklin, sister of the great statesman."

My latest review for +The Discarded Image addresses sexual violence against Native women.

Book Review: The Round House by Louise Erdrich

...And though these characters are fictional, the violence they encounter is not. Erdrich recently reported in the New York Times that though “one in three Native women is raped,” “federal prosecutors decline to prosecute 67 percent of sexual abuse cases” and “more than 80 percent of sex crimes on reservations are committed by non-Indian men, who are immune from prosecution by tribal courts.”

At least 3 articles have appeared in just the last month, sussing out some of the reasons why we’re still reading her..."
