As an astronomer, Michael Braden's job is to protect a gianttelescope from the elements at the legendary Palomar Observatory in southernCalifornia. But one night, in a midnight storm, a young woman is found on themountain, smeared with blood and wearing only a flimsy party dress. She is mute,or so it appears. Michael knows he must shield her too. And as Elena's storybegins to reveal itself, stretching tautly from Havana to Mexico and back toPalomar, Michael becomes engulfed in a firestorm both psychological andphysical, where the past relentlessly pursues the present in a dark race forlove, redemption and a new life. Set both on the border between California and Mexico--wherewaves of immigrants and criminals overwhelm the mountain with kidnapping, secretidentities and murder--and in the small Canadian town of Penetanguishene, TheTruth About the Night beautifully reflects another kind of violence,where entire galaxies must be destroyed to create new life and order. A stunningblend of superb storytelling and cinematic dialogue with a powerful explorationof the fragile truths that connect us all, Martyn Burke delivers a novel that isas provocative as it is entertaining.

In this “thought-provoking blend of history, biography, women’s studies, and travelogue” (Library Journal) Mia Kankimäki recounts her enchanting travels in Japan, Kenya, and Italy while retracing the steps of ten remarkable female pioneers from history. What can a forty-something childless woman do? Bored with her life and feeling stuck, Mia Kankimäki leaves her job, sells her apartment, and decides to travel the world, following the paths of the female explorers and artists from history who have long inspired her. She flies to Tanzania and then to Kenya to see where Karen Blixen—of Out of Africa fame—lived in the 1920s. In Japan, Mia attempts to cure her depression while researching Yayoi Kusama, the contemporary artist who has voluntarily lived in a psychiatric hospital for decades. In Italy, Mia spends her days looking for the works of forgotten Renaissance women painters of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, and finally finds her heroines in the portraits of Sofonisba Anguissola, Lavinia Fontana, and Atremisia Gentileschi. If these women could make it in the world hundreds of years ago, why can’t Mia? The Women I Think About at Night is “an astute, entertaining…[and] insightful” (Publishers Weekly) exploration of the lost women adventurers of history who defied expectations in order to see—and change—the world.

We never know how events affect our lives. In Sea Birds, events that seem to be totally unrelated gradually draw several lives together in the tropical paradise of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Sea Birds describes in a series of stories how the personal relationships of the people involved develop. Even in paradise, there is crime, greed, love, hate, and passion leading to an ultimate new beginning Anjanette was abandoned as a child of mixed heritage. She now, as an adult, operates the Arawak Eco-Camp with the goal of preserving the Caribbean land where it is located and providing educational opportunities for those interested in learning about the Virgin Islands land and the sea around them. Unfortunately, her land is a magnet for people more interested in exploiting the islands than in preserving them. Sea Birds describes the struggles of Anjanette and her friends to save the Eco-Camp from development as a resort hotel and casino. During this time, she learns much about her family, her husband, and her friends, culminating with an unexpected ending. Comments from readers: I completed the book with tears of happiness streaming down my face. A frequent visitor to the Virgin Islands. I could vividly paint the characters as I went along. A serious book collector.
