Just in time for the Holidays: Fiction

winter  See if the premises of these new fictions titles grab you.  “In the Midst of Winter” by Isabel Allende gets off with a bang when a professor, struggling with sobriety, rear-ends a car driven by an undocumented nanny.  The accident threatens her with more than deportation; the damage exposes a body in her trunk.    This story “will stay with you long after you turn the final page” (Barnes and Noble).  ‘In the shadow of Alabama” by Judy Reene Singer, a woman who never understood her father learns about his World War II experience leading black soldiers in Alabama. “The Story of Arthur Truluv” by Elizabeth Berg begins with a chance meeting in a cemetery, where Arthur’s daily visit to his wife’s grave is interrupted by the presence of an introspective girl.
