Unexpected Interruptions by Trice Hickman

Unexpected Interruptions by Trice Hickman

September 17, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 2

Shadows of Damascus by Lilas Taha

May 9, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 3

Today we have a guest review from Anu K. You can find her on Twitter. Enjoy! Bullet wounds, torture and oppression aren’t the only things that keep a man—or a woman—from being whole. Debt. Honor. Pain. Solitude. These are things wounded war veteran Adam Wegener knows all about. Love—now, that… Read more »
