Liberation by Joanna Scott

Book Description

Adriana Nardi is only ten years old when Allied forces occupy her lush island home during World War II, plaguing the quiet Italian village with violence and uncertainty. Amdu is a Senegalese soldier who abandons his comrades and befriends Adriana after witnessing an unspeakable act that has far-reaching repercussions. Years later, on a commuter train bound for Penn Station, sixty-year-old Adriana revisits her memories of the war and her doomed relationship with Amdu, even as a present crisis threatens her life.

In the Heart of the Heart of the Country by Joanna Scott In the Heart of the Heart of the Country, Paperback (December 2014)

The two novellas and three short stories it contains are all set in the Midwest, and together they offer a mythical reimagining of America's heartland, with its punishing extremes of heat and cold, its endless spaces and claustrophobic households, its hidden and baffled desires, its lurking threat of violence.

Tourmaline by Joanna Scott Tourmaline, Paperback (February 2004)

The Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer serves up a complicated, compelling tale of a family that heads for an island off the coast of Italy hoping to make a fortune in jewels but instead becomes embroiled in a mystery surrounding the disappearance of a local girl. Reprint.
