The Tale of Hun Shim & Sun Mung ($19.95) begins as Mother Nature declares a grand new plan, devised to bring the world’s people closer together beyond their differences, to a very confused and skeptical crane. Hun Shim & Sun Mung, both born in Korea, are destined to travel to America where they will find their true parents according to Mother Nature’s design. With each trial and tribulation the girls face, the crane questions Mother Nature’s decision to have them move so far away to a family and community where so few people look like the girls. Each time the curious crane questions her decision Mother Nature reassures the crane that all of the difficulties the girls face will ultimately mold them into their true selves. As Mother Nature foretells, Hun Shim and Sun Mung grow to be great peacemakers, spreading charity throughout the world, which ultimately teaches the questioning crane to have faith in the ways of Nature.

The Tale of Hun Shim & Sun Mung is the debut novel of Michele Maleville.

Tania Malik - Three Bargains

A tale of fathers and sons, the ties that bind, and the barriers of class that even love cannot break, Three Bargains ($25.95) is a stunning first novel, as potent, heart-stopping, and epic as Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner

By the banks of the River Yamuna in northern India, where rice paddies of basmati merge into fields of sugarcane, twelve-year-old Madan lives with his impoverished family in the town of Gorapur. Madan's father works for Avtaar Singh, a powerful and controlling man who owns the largest factory in town and much of the land around it. Madan's sharp mind and hardened determination catch Avtaar Singh's attention. When Madan's father's misdeeds jeopardize his sister's life, Madan strikes his first bargain with Avtaar Singh to save her. Drawn into Avtaar Singh's violent world, Madan becomes his son in every way but by blood. Suddenly it looks as if everything will change for Madan and his family until a forbidden love affair has brutal consequences and he is forced to leave behind all that is dear to him. On his journey toward redemption, Madan will have to bargain, once, twice, three times for his life and for the lives of those he loves.
 
Tania Malik was born in New Delhi, educated in boarding schools in the Himalayas, and raised in India, Africa, and the Middle East. She received her degree from the University of Delhi and currently lives in northern California with her husband, daughter, and dog.

Sukey Forbes - The Angel in My Pocket

A grieving mother draws on her storied heritage to find her daughter in the afterlife.
 
When Sukey Forbes lost her six-year-old daughter, Charlotte, to a rare genetic disorder, she felt as if her life had shattered irreparably. As the scion of two distinguished New England families, Forbes was raised in a rarefied—if eccentric—life of privilege. Yet, Forbes’s family history is also rich with spiritual seekers, including her great-great-great-grandfather Ralph Waldo Emerson. On Naushon Island, the family’s private enclave off Cape Cod, apparitions have always been as common as the servants who once walked the back halls. But the “afterlife” took on new meaning once Forbes dipped into the world of clairvoyants to reconnect with Charlotte.
 
With a mission to help others by sharing her own story, Forbes chronicles a world of ghosts that reawakens us to a lost American spiritual tradition. Filled with rare and candid glimpses into the lives of the Forbes clan, The Angel in My Pocket ($27.95) is a moving and utterly unique tale of one mother’s undying love for her child.
 
Sukey Forbes currently splits her time between Mill Valley and Boston, where she runs an art, antiques, and interior design company.
