Crow Talk (2024)
Eileen Garvin
"Bursting with beautifully detailed observations of Pacific Northwest wildlife, Crow Talk will speak to the hearts of nature and bird lovers. Eileen Garvin's story is itself a rich ecosystem that interconnects two women's family histories, traumas, fears, disappointments - and above all, their determination to heal. As biologist Frankie attempts to decipher the language of crows and songwriter Anne tries to understand why her son can't speak, the new friends find themselves muted in multiple ways - unable to pursue their scientific and creative passions, ask for help, set limits, forgive. The crows in the story always know how to speak their minds, and perhaps there are lessons to be learned from their candid communications. This book is a must-read for crow devotees and critics alike!"
A Winter's Rime (2023)
Carol Dunbar
"Just as every snowflake is shaped by unique environmental conditions, each of us is born into circumstances that intricately pattern our adult behavior. Once determined, can these patterns be changed? That's the provocative question in A Winter's Rime, the poignant story of a young woman who's learning how to trust herself and the people around her in the aftermath of repeated trauma. Set in an atmospheric winter landscape, Dunbar's second novel tenderly demonstrates the healing power of friendship, empathy, and closure."
Five First Chances (2023)
One Last Chance

Sarah Jost
"Jost's brilliant debut is a fascinating exploration of how the choices we make affect our relationships, and ultimately our ability to feel good about our lives. Full of hope and heart, this book is a compassionate ode to the beautiful messiness of being human."
