The Left Hand Dreams of Him
Only the Ring Finger Knows, Volume 2 (novel)
By Satoru Kannagi
Published by DMP Books, 2006

Review by Ginger Mayerson

My review in a nutshell: If you like Kazuki and Wataru, you'll love this novel.

My review not in a nutshell: Y'know, I'm not an expert on Japanese novels, but I've read quite a few of them, in translation of course. What I've discovered is that you have to watch out for them most of the time or they emotionally knee-cap you when you least expect it. However, this is not the case with the latest Satoru Kannagi novel from DMP Books: Only the Ring Finger Knows 2 - The Left Hand Dreams of Him, which is kind of a long title for Kazuki Loves Wataru. And he really does.

It's safe to read this novel. No one's girl friend gets leukemia and dies rather horribly (Socrates in Love), no one's whole future, and the whole future of her little sister, is determined by how well she wears a kimono (Makioka Sisters), and no one's best friend is possessed by a sheep demon (Wild Sheep Chase). Honest. [more]

Virgin Earth
By Philippa Gregory
Published by Touchstone Books

Review by Kathryn Ramage

1638. John Tradescant, gardener to King Charles I, is sent on a mission to the New World to gather samples of rare and unusual plants. To navigate the wilderness beyond the Virginia colony settlement and tobacco farms, John hires Suckahanna, a young girl of the Powhatan tribe, as a guide. When he returns to England with his gathered specimens, he leaves behind the girl, nominally his wife for her protection against the advancing settlers. He arrives home to find that his father has died, a marriage of convenience has been arranged for him, and his country is headed for Civil War. [more]
