The Age of Light
The Age of Light
by Whitney Scharer

For all lovers of historical fiction, THE AGE OF LIGHT by debut novelist Whitney Scharer will capture your imagination and force you to google more details on both main characters, photographer Lee Miller and Man Ray.  Scharer's portrayal of Miller gives readers a colorful portrait of self-transformation.  It's all here -- art, love, war, and heartbreak.

I Owe You One
I Owe You One
by Sophie Kinsella

Another classic rom-com by Sophie Kinsella! Fixie is such a quirky, lovable character who experiences hope and heartbreak in a way that is so relatable to most women. There's family drama, old flames, and a man with woodland eyes. What's not to love?

Leading Men
by Christopher Castellani
The glamour of old Hollywood and the glitter of the Italian Riviera form the backdrop of this lush novel where fact and fiction converge.  Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, and others of the literati spring to life through the eyes of narrator Frank Merlo. Frank reflects on a lifetime of being in the shadow of greatness, pondering over the years through a haze of nostalgia whether it is more noble to have loved deeply, or to have  been  loved deeply. The author's meditations on art, inspiration, genius, and love provide psychological depth and human insight in this beautifully crafted novel.
