Tell The Wolves I'm Home

I just finished reading this amazing book by Carol Rifka Brunt.  I didn't want it to end and at the same time I couldn't wait for it to end so I could find out how it would end.  I suggest you drop everything, go buy this book, and start reading it immediately.  The central action takes place in 1987 during the height of the AIDS epidemic and its accompanying fear and stigma.  Woven brilliantly into the narrative is the damage that can be done by family secrets and the misguided attempts to control information and events.  Throw in two sisters trying to reclaim their relationship and a family doing the best it can and you wind up with a powerful novel of the redemptive power of love.  Just go read it.

Unfortunately for those of us who like to read multiple books by the same author this was her first novel and she's only written one other so far.

Sweeter for the wait, right?
