Book Talk: We Recommend
Recommended by Laraine Worby, Reference Department
Ordinary people in extraordinary times…
Leon and Louise by Albert Capus,
translated by John Brownjohn Leon and Louise meet and fall in love in France
at the end of World War 1. They are tragically
separated but after many years they are reunited in Germanoccupied
Paris. This beautiful story is told in the context of war
a nd hardship, where sacrifices are made for love and family.
A hundred flowers by Gail Tsukiyama
Set during the Chinese Cultural Revolution of Mao’s reign,
this is a deceptively simple tale of an ordinary family facing
extraordinary times. With a 6-year-old boy at its center and told
through the eyes of various members of a multi-generational
family, the story of love and devotion unfolds with a vivid
glimpse into the daily life during these oppressive times. See what
else library staff recommend .
