The Demonologist by Andrew Piper
"This book is creepy,
breath-stealing and pretty much impossible to put down. It's not for
the faint of heart, but if you are up to it, it's a riveting read." ~Jackie
"This delightful book is about Esther, age 85, and her last few months before her death.... She's the same person she's always been, as she sees it, though admittedly older, creakier, slower....A simple life is not a boring life—not by any means. Thank you, Esther, for reminding me of that! What a delightful book, even if it did end up making me cry." ~Jackie
"This is an atmospheric and heart wrenching view of what the aftermath of 9/11 was for the people of Pakistan and Afghanistan....It opened my eyes about many things, made me cry a time or two, and, most of all, it made me think about 9/11 in a very, very, very different way." ~Jackie
"A manuscript, carbon dated back to 1307 AD...concerns a town meeting in July 14, 1099, a day before the French army was to invade the city (Jerusalem). A Greek man who had made his home there for years...invites the spectators to ask him questions. The book is a transcript of those questions and their deeply beautiful answers....a quick read in some ways, but I found myself going back over the answers again and again. The writing is so well rendered, one wonders if this is truly fiction, or is there maybe something larger behind it." ~Jackie
