Stephen Dau Author- THE BOOK OF JONAS

THE BOOK OF JONAS

by Stephen Dau

Beautifully told with underlying themes of war, family, and survival, THE BOOK OF JONAS slowly reveals Jonas’ past and his present assimilation into a new life in the United States.  Jonas is originally from an unnamed Muslim country where a military operation has destroyed his home and family.  We know we will learn Jonas’ secrets as we get to know him and it is his search for his memory and for his survival that carry us breathlessly through his narrative.

It is also the story of an American soldier and his mother, who searches for the truth about her son as she tries to put a life together without him.  Secrets are slowly revealed and closure comes with the hope of peace … in a beautifully written debut. -tlg

Ken Follett Author- FALL OF GIANTS

FALL OF GIANTS

by Ken Follett

From the #! NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of WORLD WITHOUT END and THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH.

“(Ken Follett) is masterly in conveying so much drama and historical information so vividly … Grippingly told.”- New York Times Book Review

From the danger of a Welsh coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a Russian palace, and from the boardrooms of powers to the bedroom of the aristocracy, FALL OF GIANTS takes readers into the entangled fates of five families – and into a century we thought we knew, but that will never seem the same again.
