Katherine J Chen recommends
The Moon Represents My Heart (2023)
"In The Moon Represents My Heart, Pim Wangtechawat paints an emotional and panoramic portrait of a family as united by their gift as they are tested by it. Intimate, tender and imaginative, this novel takes the reader on a time-traveling adventure while imparting the wisdom of how cherished and truly priceless time is."
The Sisterhood (2023)
"Though set in a dystopian world replete with endless horrors, The Sisterhood ultimately tackles a much more universal story, that of a woman on a quest to seek identity and purpose in a society which denies her access to both. Where any passion beyond the all-encompassing authority of Big Brother is forbidden, much love simmers beneath the surface of Katherine Bradley's fast-paced and suspenseful work. The Sisterhood's greatest gift, however, may be in its message of hope, capable of surmounting even the most formidable of odds and the most uncertain of futures."
Dark Earth (2022)
"At the heart of Rebecca Stott's Dark Earth are those things as old as time itself: the love between two sisters, the bonds that bring women together, the power of telling a story around a fire. Though Stott turns her expert eye back thousands of years, this novel pulses with the energy of a brave new world, a world as beautiful as it is dangerous, where a belief in myth and magic can save your life."
"A book simmering with life, language, intellect--and delicious Pakistani cuisine. It will leave readers' hearts and souls content and their mouths watering."
