This month's Midwest Connection Picks


book cover

Little Faith
Nickolas Butler

Lyle Hovde’s daughter has become deeply involved with an extremist church. While reckoning with his own faith—or lack thereof—Lyle soon finds himself torn between his unease about the church and his desire to keep his daughter and grandson in his life. But when the church’s radical belief system threatens Isaac’s safety, Lyle is forced to make a decision from which the family may not recover.


book coverChronicles of a Radical Hag (with Recipes)
Lorna Landvik

With her customary warmth and wit, Lorna Landvik summons a lifetime at once lost and recovered, a complicated past that speaks with knowing eloquence to a confused present. Chronicles of a Radical Hag reminds us of the power of words and of silence, as well as the wonder of finding in each other what we never even knew we were missing



book cover

Beautiful Bad
Annie Ward

Maddie and Ian's love story began overseas; he was in the army and she was visiting her best friend, Jo. Two decades later, married with a son, they are living the perfect suburban life. But when an accident leaves Maddie badly scarred, she begins attending writing therapy, where she reveals her fears about Ian's PTSD; her concerns for the safety of their young son; and the couple’s tangled and tumultuous past with Jo.


book cover Beginnings
Thomas Peacock

Beginnings: The Homeward Journey of Donovan Manypenny is the story of Donovan Manypenny. Raised by his grandparents on a northern Wisconsin Ojibwe reservation until their passing when he is ten years old, he becomes a ward of the state of Wisconsin and enters the child welfare system—foster care, children’s home, and adoption. The trauma he experiences as a result of losing his grandparents and way of life leads him to put his past behind him for over forty-three years. Then at the age of fifty-three, events in his life take him back to his childhood home, retracing the historical westward migration of his Ojibwe ancestors. Heartfelt and bittersweet, and layered with meaning, Beginnings: The Homeward Journey of Donovan Manypenny will resonate with anyone who longs to make the journey home, wherever that may be, as well those who seek or have experienced cultural or spiritual awakening, and healing.
