BOOK REVIEW

SARAH by Marek Halter
Released: May 4, 2004

"Halter fleshes out the scriptural account with rich and credible portraits of contemporary life and history, even if his narration ('There was a quivering in her belly that had nothing to do with fear or anger') occasionally descends to the level of the bodice-buster."
The prizewinning French author re-creates the story of Abraham and Sarah and the unlikely steps that led to their giving birth to both Judaism and the Jewish people. Read full book review >

AN EYE FOR GOLD by Sarah Andrews
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 1, 2000

"Sprawling as the Nevada desert, with far too many interesting but digressive professorial discourses on earth science, Indian meditation, twin-engine piloting, and century-old land bills."

BOOK REVIEW

TENSLEEP by Sarah Andrews
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 1, 1994

"Oil-drilling operations and the rough-mouthed, rough-living characters who do the work get robust treatment here, but with the same sweet edge that enriches Em's spiky character and gives subtle nuancing to geologist Andrews's unhackneyed, accomplished first novel."
Geologist Emily Hansen, working as a mudlogger in the Tensleep Sandstone oilfield near tiny Meeteetse, Wyo., is sorely troubled by the seemingly accidental death of head geologist Bill Kretzmer and the subsequent killing of his protÇgÇ Willie Sewell, who had suspicions of his own.
