Ames Sheldon recommends
The Long-Lost Jules (2021)
Jane Elizabeth Hughes
"In The Long-Lost Jules, Jane Elizabeth Hughes has created an enthralling page-turner of a novel about international finance and money laundering that skips from England across the continent and back again. The relationship between private banker Amy and Oxford don Leo is especially engaging. This is a delight to read!"
Finding Grace (2022)
Maren Cooper
"Finding Grace is a riveting dive into the heartache and terror that parents experience dealing with a child who lapses into mental illness during adolescence. It's a keen portrayal of the ways in which childhood trauma shapes lives. An added attraction is Maren Cooper's wonderfully evocative descriptions of Lake Superior in all its moods and seasons."
