♥ Book Title : Remembering the Bones
☯ Full Synopsis : "Finalist for the Commonwealth Writers Prize: A poignant, comic and “effective feminine counterpoint to . . . Philip Roth’s Everyman” (The Washington Post). Born on the same day as Queen Elizabeth II, Canadian Georgina Whitley is one of ninety-nine lucky Commonwealth residents invited to Her Majesty’s eightieth birthday lunch at Buckingham Palace. But en route to the airport to board the plane for London, Georgie’s car slips off the road and plunges into a thickly wooded ravine. Thrown from the car, injured, and unable to move, she must rely on her full store of family memories, her no-nonsense wit, and a recitation of the names of the bones in her body—an exercise from childhood—to remind her that she is still very much alive. But what has the entirety of her life meant? As Georgina lies stranded and helpless, she reflects on her eighty years as a daughter, mother, sister, wife, and widow, on lost loves and secrets, and on painful moments of the past she struggles not to recall. With this exquisite, suspenseful and surprising tale of the staying power of family through time and memory, “Itani exposes the richness and depth beneath the surface of one ordinary life” (The New Yorker)."Article| Frances Itani| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : American Nightingale
☯ Full Synopsis : "Of the 350,000 American women in uniform during World War II, none instilled more hope in American GIs than Frances Slanger. In Army fatigues and helmet she splashed ashore with the first nurses to hit the Normandy beach in June 1944. Later, from a storm-whipped tent amid the thud of artillery shells, she wrote a letter to Stars and Stripes newspaper that would stir the souls of thousands of weary soldiers. Hundreds wrote heartfelt responses, praising Slanger and her fellow nurses and honoring her humility and patriotism. But Frances Slanger never got to read such praise. She was dead, killed the very next day when German troops shelled her field hospital, the first American nurse to die in Europe after the landing at Normandy. Frances Slanger was a Jewish fruit-peddler's daughter who survived a chilling childhood in World War I-torn Poland and immigrated to America at age seven. Inspired by memories of her bitter past and a Nazi-threatened future, she defied her parents' wishes by becoming a nurse and joining the military. A woman of great integrity and courage, she was also a passionate writer and keeper of chapbooks. This is the story of her too brief life."Article| Bob Welch| Statement ..."
