Mally Becker recommends
'Til All These Things Be Done (2022)
Suzanne Moyers
"A rich and beautifully written story of family, tragedy, and love. . . . The author renders her characters in vivid detail, capturing their strengths and foibles with heart and a brilliant ear for dialogue. Moyers also provides a clear-eyed portrait of the prejudices of the time that unfortunately feels too familiar in the 21st century. 'Til All These Things Be Done is exactly the book any lover of historical fiction - or of stories about the power of families to hurt and heal - would want to have."
The Convention of Wives (2022)
Debra Green
"Debra Green is a wonderful storyteller, and her sweeping tale of family secrets had me turning pages from beginning to end. The Convention of Wives tells the story of Dina Aharoni Wasserman and Julia Cawley Kinsella, two young wives and mothers who meet in the 1970s, lose touch, then reunite decades later in a dramatic climax that reveals the mysterious end to their earlier friendship. Green masterfully moves the narrative back and forth in time and place, weaving together the lives of Dina's Jewish ancestors and Julia's Christian heritage to remind the reader that long-hidden family trauma still lives and breathes in each of us. A gripping family saga."
