Books to keep on your radar:  


WHEN THE APRICOTS BLOOM Gina Wilkinson is a novel inspired by the author’s own experiences.  The story is told through the eyes of three very different women in Iraq at the turn of the millennium, and each woman must confront the complexities of trust, friendship, and motherhood under the rule of a dictator and his ruthless secret police.  


 


WE RUN THE TIDES by Vendela Vida is a coming-of-age story that centers around a girl’s disappearance in 1984 San Francisco. It's both a gripping mystery and a tribute to the wonders of youth, in all its beauty and confusion.  It’s also an achingly beautiful story of female friendship, betrayal, and the changing landscape of San Francisco.  


 


AFTERSHOCKS by Nadia Owusu is a deeply felt memoir that grapples with the multiplicity of identity, the push and pull of belonging, the meaning of home,  the emotional toll of family secrets, the complexities of family, and the ripple effects, both personal and generational, of emotional trauma.  


 


BLACK WIDOWS by Cate Quinn is a domestic thriller set in Utah and the novel focuses on the wives from a polygamistic family.  Each of the wives are extremely different from one another. The only thing that they had in common was Blake. Until all three are accused of his murder.
