As Berger's novel moves back and forth from Vilna to Brooklyn, the focus is on Rosha and Mira as well as on Charlie's sister Jeanette. All three attempt to make sense of a life that often makes no sense at all. VERDICT: In this engaging debut, a semifinalist for Amazon's annual Breakthrough Novel Award, readers gain three different views of the effects of World War II on ordinary people.

Despite the title, bitterness is the dark driving force in this stirring debut novel of Holocaust survivor guilt-guilt about being safe. Told with candor and tenderness, there are two parallel stories of Jewish girls-one a teen, one an eight year old- from the same family but worlds apart during WWII.
Hazel Rochman, Booklist
A Jewish girl in Eastern Europe and her teenage American cousin experience the Holocaust years in vastly different ways in this bittersweet novel.... A tender look at immigrants in America and Nazi victims in Europe succeeds in educating and engaging readers.

An interview with Sande Boritz Berger about her forthcoming novel, The Sweetness (She Writes Press, September 2014)
New York, NY, September 2014 -- The Sweetness: A Novel by Sande Boritz Berger (She Writes Press, September 2014), is a stunning tour de force of a debut novel, inspired by true events, set during WWII, in both Vilna and Brooklyn.
"Sande Boritz Berger's impressive debut novel examines the lives of two Jewish girls, cousins, separated by an ocean and connected by brutal world events. Ms. Berger doesn't shrink from the rough history that informs her heroines' lives, but she mitigates its harshness with a deep measure of sympathy and hope." - Hilma Wolitzer, author of An Available Man
"Sande Boritz Berger has created a rich novel about survivor guilt and innocence. The guilt is readily understood. How are people who survived the Nazis supposed to know how to behave in the face of unique evil? The Kanes (Kaninskys) endured the general experience of Jews who got out. But within that experience, they are also a family of complicated individuals, who pursue differentiated goals. It is this - their individuality, not unlike that of the Anne Frank family, that gives Ms. Berger's novel its power as a work of art." - Roger Rosenblatt, author of The Boy Detective

(Sentinels of New Orleans, Book 1)
As the junior wizard sentinel for New Orleans, Drusilla Jaco’s job involves a lot more potion-mixing and pixie-retrieval than sniffing out supernatural bad guys like rogue vampires and lethal were-creatures. Her boss and mentor, Gerald St. Simon, is the wizard tasked with protecting the city from anyone or anything that might slip over from the preternatural beyond. Then Hurricane Katrina hammers New Orleans’ fragile levees, unleashing more than just dangerous flood waters. While winds howled and Lake Pontchartrain surged, the borders between the modern city and the other world crumbled. Now, the Undead and the Restless are roaming the Big Easy, and a serial killer with ties to voodoo is murdering soldiers sent to help the city recover. Gerald St. Simon has gone missing, the wizards’ Elders have assigned a grenade-toting assassin as DJ’s new partner, and an undead pirate Jean Lafitte wants to make her walk his plank. The search for Gerry and the killer turns personal when DJ learns the hard way that loyalty requires sacrifice, allies come from the unlikeliest places, and duty mixed with love serves up one bitter gumbo. Out now!

THE INHERITANCE OF A SWAMP WITCH
By Sonia Taylor Brock
The Inheritance of a Swamp Witch
In her debut novel, The Inheritance of a Swamp Witch, Sonia Taylor Brock draws on her experience growing up in Southern Louisiana to create an authentic setting complete with hanging Spanish moss, tasty cuisine, and spot-on Cajun speaking characters. The story follows Dan Rawlings, a city slicker from Los Angeles who dreams of writing an article for the LA Times that will solidify his career as an investigative journalist. He drives from Los Angeles to Southern Louisiana in search of a missing heir to the Hamilton family fortune. Initially treated warily by the townsfolk who see him as an outsider asking too many questions, he is soon invited to travel deep into the swamp, to the home of Estelle Eschte, a wise, elderly woman and the matriarch of the Eschte family.
In a Cajun English dialect thicker than molasses, Estelle reveals the family history to Dan, and he realizes she is the key to his career-breaking story. But Dan is just beginning to understand the true legacy of the Eschte family, as a host of supernatural characters line up on the sides of both good and evil, battling to lay claim to the Balance and forever alter the nature of magic as it exists in the world.
The Inheritance of a Swamp Witch is the first book in a planned eight book series, and will appeal to readers of supernatural, fantasy, paranormal urban fiction.
CONSPIRATOR'S ODYSSEY - THE EVOLUTION OF THE PATRON SAINT
By A.K. Kuykendall
In 1947, in the rural town of Roswell, New Mexico, a series of UFO’s crash-land in an area later designated as Area 51. A massive cover-up is launched. The intent: to conceal plans to strengthen the U.S. by using the genetic material from the recovered alien bodies to create the first wave of super-human soldiers. Skip forward to 1965: In order to field test the resulting serum, the strategic plot to invade Vietnam evolves, but the experiment fails miserably, as the soldiers who are tested suffer volatile unstable reactions making them prime targets for capture and slaughter. On October 3, 1998, U.S. Army Ranger Captain Kalista Flaker is given an order of assassination. Everything seems routine until she discovers that instead of destroying the enemy, her orders are to kill her very own; to eliminate any living POW’s remaining in Vietnam, then assassinate her own team of Army Rangers and Navy Seals. If all goes according to plan, Kalista is to be the sole survivor of the mission. Ignoring the commands of her superiors, Kalista manages to return from Vietnam with her comrade Lieutenant Buckner and a vial of blood slipped to her by one of the American POW’s prior to his elimination. With no detailed knowledge of the reasons behind the mission and a growing crisis of conscience as she’s forced to question her loyalty to a nation she’s sworn to protect, Kalista sets out on her own fact-finding mission. Her discoveries lead her to assume leadership of a secret organization sworn to defeat those who would conspire against the United States; even those who often are found within the agencies of the U.S. Government itself.
