A Few Recent Books I Recommend
The Midnight Library
For anyone who has ever wondered what if they'd chosen a different path, The Midnight Library explores the space between life and death, in which there lies a library full of books. Each book holds a different life you may have lived and an opportunity to explore what might have been. A beautiful, magical tale of possibility and reconciliation. I adored this book! Audible version wonderfully narrated by Carey Mulligan.
The Invisible Life of Addie Larue
A Faustian tale of a girl who makes a deal to live forever, and what that really means...this book is hard to put down. Addie is all of us - because who hasn't learned at some point to be careful what you wish for? She's relatable and so is her romance with the dark, as she navigates a life that goes on forever even as she slips from the minds of literally everyone she meets. Until, one day, she doesn't. The audible version was miscast, so I read this one with my eyes.
The Dream Stitcher
Moving between present day America and WW2 Poland, The Dream Stitcher is a uniquely magical tale that won't soon leave you. Goldye is a Jewish Freedom fighter who helped launch the 1943 Ghetto Uprising - and her story is inexplicably linked to an 11th century tapestry. Maude is determined to find out how Goldye and the tapestry are related to her heritage - and the story that unfolds is beautiful and heartbreaking. I completely recommend this book - both the audible version, read wonderfully by the author, or the print version.
