Sparks Like Stars
Review: If you need a story that is thought-provoking and emotional, give Sparks Like Stars a try. Or if you love historical fiction, because it's about an actual event; a Soviet-backed coup against the President of Afghanistan..... More

Atomic Love
Review: Right from the start, I could tell this was a story that would pull me in. I thought it was a nice mix of romance and spy thriller. However, as someone who loves historical fiction, this book does not feel like a thriller; it feels like historical romance. But it's a compelling read, and I should note the romance is not too over the top .. More

Discussion Questions -A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes
Book Club Pick Author-A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes
Review: I tend to love books that are complex with lots of layers and challenges. And Greek Mythology fascinates me. I'm a huge fan of Madeline Miller's CIRCE and THE SONG OF ACHILLES, so I never expected to like this book as much, but I did. This story tells what happens to the women when their men go to war, what it's like to be female in an ancient male-dominated society ... More
From the Jacket: This is the women's war, just as much as it is the men's. They have waited long enough for their turn . . . This was never the story of one woman, or two. It was the story of them all . . . In the middle of the night, a woman wakes to find her beloved city engulfed in flames. Ten seemingly endless years of conflict between the Greeks and the Trojans are over. Troy has fallen. ... More
Praise: "With her trademark passion, wit, and fierce feminism, Haynes gives much-needed voice to the silenced women of the Trojan War. Her thoughtful portraits will linger with you long after the book is finished." -Madeline Miller, author of Circe

"A Thousand Ships does more than acknowledge the suffering of women. It tells in lively fashion gripping tales of bravery, treachery and revenge. . . . It's a timely notion as the modern world reckons with who gets to tell the stories of its diverse populations." -Washington Post More
