Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
Tell the Wolves I'm Home

SMR, January 1, 2013

What defines a friendship, a relationship, a family? What part does love play? Grief? This is the story of 14 year old June and her relationship to her sister, her parents, her beloved uncle and godfather, and the man who became her friend. It's beautifully and wonderfully written. My favorite book of 2012.

The Madonnas of Leningrad (P.S.) by Debra Dean
The Madonnas of Leningrad (P.S.)

SMR, January 19, 2012

Marina has Alzheimer's and is becoming more and more distant from her family as she remembers her life in Leningrad during World War II. Part historical novel, part love story, part memoir, part Alzheimer's story. The horrors of war and the discovery of the importance of details and little joys. Beautifully and hopefully written.
