Book Summary:

Winner of the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award “Reginald Gibbons’s first novel takes place in east Texas in 1910 during the time of white rule—not by law but by lynch mob. Amid the suffocating racism and fear, half-Choctaw, half-white Reuben Sweetbitter and Martha Clarke, a white woman, fall in love. . . . Reuben and Martha’s love is strong, but, dishearteningly, racism is stronger. Timely in the subject of interracial love, this authentic, richly -detailed novel plumbs sacrifice, fear, and the loss of one’s identity, bringing the -anguish of the two young lovers to life. Highly recommended.”—Library Journal “Far more than a spellbinding love story . . . a novel wide and deep in its understanding. . . . An unforgettable story, a remarkable piece of work.”—Dallas Morning News “I love this novel: it sings, it soars. Simultaneously deft and deep, it brings a lost world back to brilliant light.”—Andrea Barrett “Surprising in every way. . . . The novel’s ending is as strong as its beginning—terrifying and beautiful, a true tour de force.”—Chicago Tribune

Book Summary:

One woman. Two men. A war. Twenty-year-old Amelia marries Italo, a man she's never met. To escape an Italy reeling from the Great War, she sails to him in Far North Queensland to farm sugarcane. But before she meets her husband, she's thrown into the path of Fergus, a man who'll mark the rest of her life. Faced with a lack of English and hostility from established cane growers, caught between warring unions and fascists, Amelia's steady hand grows Italo's business to great success, only for old grudges to break into new revenge. She is tested by forces she couldn't foresee and must face her greatest challenge: learning to live again. Sweeping in its outlook, Sweet Bitter Cane is a family saga but also an untold story of migrant women - intelligent, courageous and enduring women who were the backbone of the sugarcane industry and who deserve to be remembered.

Book Summary:

One + one + one more = perfection. Ryan Shannon's life has finally hit a smooth patch. He's reached the point where he believes he's mastered the single-dad challenge. He brews beer and owns his own brewery with his brother, Quinn. The brewery is so successful they need to hire someone to manage their burgeoning sales. When Quinn surprises him with the announcement that he's fallen in love with someone and she has a brother--a hot brother--named Cole, Ryan is sceptical of the setup. But Quinn begs him to join them for a dinner so that his girlfriend won't worry about her brother feeling left out. After one hookup, Cole claims he isn't interested in anything more. Which is when Ryan hires the brewery's new sales director--Lynette Williams, a woman fresh out of MBA school with plenty of debt, desperate to find her own way in life. That's when things really get complicated. Not to mention very...very hot. They all claim that their connection is nothing more than really great sex. But Ryan, Cole and Lynette find themselves depending on one another in ways they never imaged they'd want or need--or ultimately love.
