Elaine had a hard time narrowing down the list to only six titles this year. She hated passing up ” The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” by Lisa See, “An American War” by Omar El Akkad, and “News of The World” by Paulette Jiles.
So mark your calendars, get set, and begin reading if you haven’t already!
