"Picked up this book for a library book club. Main lesson is that there seems to be a hidden history of EVERYTHING. Also, the humblest things can have huge implications. The author is persuasive that European exploration and the institution of Euro..." Read more of this review »

This was certainly a book I haven’t read before, a new storyline completely and I applaud Gilbert for taking me on a new journey in what I call a novel novel. My only fault was Vivian’s protracted dissolute life. Half the book was filled with her hed ...more

This book got off to a slow start for me, centering around the rich at the Ritz in Vichy France. I’ve read several books about the Resistance and really couldn’t engage with Blanche who was more interested in how she looked than who she was. It was h ...more

“And the real beauty of it all for the cynical exploiters was that ordinary people didn’t care. Not really. No one had asked the refugees, the prostitutes, the fortune hunters, and the orphans to come knocking on Denmark’s door. No one had invited them, and no one knew how many there were. Crimes committed against them had nothing to do with ordinary people and the usual workings of law and order. It”

“Vegas is still a town where everyone knows who was”
Laura McBride, We Are Called to Rise

“crooners, the onetime murderers—they built this town. Nothing in nature disappears. Helium becomes carbon becomes diamonds become rings. Bodies become bones become dust becomes earth. And in Vegas, murderers become patriarchs, card sharks become benefactors, the unredeemed become the redeemers. And cops are not convicted of excessive force. It’s true: it’s not a small town anymore. For decades, people have been streaming in from all over the world, from every country on the planet: stateless people, desperate people, eager people, ambitious people. They come for easy work, for the ability to pay someone off, for the chance to start over. They come because they are rich, they come because they are poor, and some day, maybe even some day soon, all these hundreds of thousands, millions, of newcomers may even wipe clean the slate drawn by Vegas’s earliest dreamers. But not yet. Not yet. Arjeta Ahmeti has no chance of vindication in that coroner’s inquest. Not in this town. Not”

“Nina couldn’t help wondering if the lives of other people were really as simple as they looked. As simple, and as happy.”
