"A rare treat: an elegantly written debut about a family mystery set during wartime, the slipperiness of memory and the challenges of forgiveness. Plus, we get to go to Greece! What more could you want from a novel?  Read it, read it!"

—Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us

In her stunning debut novel, The Clover House, Henriette Lazaridis Power presents a richly textured story about a young woman who uncovers the secret to a family tragedy in wartime Greece when she returns to her mother's native country to sort out an inheritance. It is a moving and evocative novel about the search for identity, the challenges of love, and the shared history that defines a family. This multi-layered, character-driven novel hits close to home and explores subjects near to Power’s heart.

 

As a first-generation Greek American, Power chose to write a story about the search for identity that centers around a woman torn between two cultures, longing to relate and feel “at home” in one settled place.

Book club rescheduled
Monday, February 16, at 7 PM
Every February, our book group meets for a discussion and dramatic reading of a play by Shakespeare. This year we're doing Othello. This meeting was originally planned for Monday, Feb. 2, but was rescheduled due to snow.  We hope for clear skies, easy driving, and any tragic outcomes only on the page. All are welcome!
(Laurence Fishburne as Othello and Kenneth Branagh as Iago, in the 1995 movie.)
