A Flicker in the Dark
Review: I just finished listening to "A Flicker in the Dark" by Stacy Willingham, and I loved it! It was captivating and suspenseful from start to finish. It begins when we meet Chole Davis, 32 years old, living in Baton Rogue, Lousiana, working as a successful psychologist, and very happy with her life. But, when she was twelve, several girls went missing... More

Book Club Pick-  The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O'Farrell
The Marriage Portrait
By Maggie O'Farrell
From the Jacket: Florence, the 1550s. Lucrezia, third daughter of the grand duke, is comfortable with her obscure place in the palazzo: free to wonder at its treasures, observe its clandestine workings, and devote herself to her own artistic pursuits. But when her older sister ...More
Review: If you love a good ending, then grab this book. Maggie O'Farrel's book takes place in Florence, Italy, in the 1550s and starts with a young dutchess Lucrezia, in an arranged marriage. When her engaged sister unexpectedly dies, she is expected to take her ... More
Praise: " A glittering, propulsive new novel . . . Few writers play as confidently with the nuts and bolts of language, and historical characters netted from the past. O'Farrell adroitly shrinks Lucrezia to her own vanishing point, even if the probable cause of the duchess's demise was a pulmonary embolism rather than poison. O'Farrell's creative license beautifully frames the chasms that open up between husband and wife, implicating an institution that has galvanized our canonical writers, including the Victorian poet Robert Browning, whose dramatic monologue 'My Last Duchess' was inspired by Branzino's portrait of Lucrezia." -Oprah Daily

" O'Farrell pulls out little threads of historical detail to weave this story of a precocious girl sensitive to the contradictions of her station . . . You may know the history, and you may think you know what's coming, but don't be so sure. O'Farrell and Lucrezia, with her 'crystalline, righteous anger,' will always be one step ahead of you.. . . O'Farrell [is] one of the most exciting novelists alive." -The Washington Post More
