 Kristin Hannah has a vast following of readers, and we are among them.  We were not disappointed in the new novel coming from her this month.  The Allbright family, Ernt, Cora, and Leni, has been touched by war, and Leni, a thirteen year old girl, is growing up in a violent home.  Ernt has come back from Vietnam and has a temper that can bubble up at any moment.  When an army buddy dies and leaves Ernt his land and home in the Alaskan frontier, it is just the new start that they need.  But like in most situations, their problems follow them, and Cora and Leni are still fearful for their lives, now with civilization cut off from them.  With her characteristic flair, Ms. Hannah weaves a heart-wrenching story you won't soon forget and won't want to end.

Eitan Green, a neurosurgeon living in a small city in Israel, is out driving his SUV in the desert late at night when he accidentally hits and kills an illegal Eritrean immigrant.  He leaves the scene, returns to his home where his wife, a police detective,  and his two sons are sound asleep, and unknowingly sets off a series of unexpected, sometimes dangerous, events.  From that night on, Eitan's life is one lie after another.  And each new happening means he has to cover his tracks more scrupulously.

Waking Lions has it all-great writing, suspense, fleshed-out characters and moral dilemmas.  Furthermore, it brings up themes of guilt, the Mideast conflict, illegal immigrants and how well do we truly know ourselves or others.  I eagerly await Gundar-Goshen's second novel.

"Late one evening toward the end of March, a teenager picked up a double-barreled shotgun, walked into the forest, put the gun to someone else's forehead and pulled the trigger.  This is the story of how we got there."  So begins Mr. Backman's 5th book, a novel much different than his previous ones.  It revolves around a youth hockey team in a small Swedish town.  You don't have to love hockey to appreciate the way he builds characters,  delves into the day to day grind of sports and takes us into the deep intrigues that can come from living in a close community. We think this may be his best work to date and can't wait to see what he has coming next.

This book could have easily have been written as non-fiction,  The characters are real and many of the facts are, too.  In 1888 Thomas Edison sued George Westinghouse for the unheard of sum of 1 billion dollars for infringing on his light bulb patent.  Westinghouse defended himself by hiring a 26 year old lawyer right out of Columbia Law School named Paul Cravath.  Among the cast of characters is Nikola Tesla who Paul hopes will be the key to proving that Westinghouse's invention was based on different science. Imagine the thinking, the preparation, the law, that went into the defense Cravath needed to overcome  312 lawsuits by Edison. The way Graham Moore weaves the story shows why his winning the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for the Imitation Game was no fluke. There's also a wonderful love interest for Paul, the real life singer Agnes Huntington. Don't Google or read the author's notes at the end to find out what really happened, just enjoy an intriguing story.
