Book Review: The Secret Chord

The Secret Chord is the fourth Geraldine Brooks novel I’ve read. I’m a fan. I was especially interested when I heard she was writing about the life of David. I wanted to know why he was so beloved of the Lord.

Book Review: The Changeling

The Changeling is an odd book that explores love, marriage, and parenthood in the context of folklore. Author Victor Lavalle refers to his story as a fairy tale. I’ve always been a fan of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, especially the misdeeds of trolls. The explanation I’ve heard for a child’s fascination with these dark stories is that they provide a safe place to explore the fearful unknown. Children search for meaning in strange events. “But, why?” they ask.  “It’s magic,” is a perfectly acceptable answer.

Book Review: Waking Lions

Waking Lions is a devastating story about the complexities of immigration, race relations, and justice. At the same time, it is about the human heart in conflict with the cultural heritages that influence how people view their world.
