Many times in our lives we try to make sense of why God does the things he does. We ask him to reveal his plans to us, but he is silent, nowhere to be found. Set in the 1920’s, In the Shadows of Love is a faith-based story centered around Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (KJV). It’s the story of how God’s invisible hand never stops working, always shaping history for the good of his children, even when it doesn’t seem possible. Alina Foster lives a life of misery and despair from the moment she was brought into the world. Her mother died giving birth to her. Her father is hostile toward her, blaming her for his wife’s death. With no hopes of a brighter future, Alina trades one miserable life for another, enduring a long hard-filled life on the crime-ridden streets of Kirkville, a rural Midwestern town. After years of searching for purpose and meaning to her existence, God brings an extraordinary little gift into her life that changes the course of her destiny forever.

An extraordinary memoir by Iris Origo, who chronicled political life in A Chill in the Air and War in Val d'Orcia, and now turns inward to describe her own family, the work of writing, and the transcience of memory. Images and Shadows, Iris Origo’s autobiographical account of her early life, is as perceptive and humane and beautifully written as her celebrated memoir War in Val d’Orcia. Origo’s father came from an old and moneyed American family, her mother was the daughter of an Irish peer, and Iris grew up in the most privileged of circumstances. Her father died of tuberculosis when he was only thirty, and her mother moved to Fiesole, Italy, where she and Iris developed a close friendship with the great connoisseur and art historian Bernard Berenson. Later, Origo and her Italian husband transformed a desolate and deforested Tuscan property into a flourishing estate, and it was there that she discovered her true calling as a writer. In Images and Shadows, Origo paints portraits of her shy, loving father and her headstrong mother, and describes beloved places, the books that formed her sensibility, and how she grew up and made her way in the world. She reflects on the pleasures and challenges of writing and evokes the persistence and fragility of memory. Images and Shadows is an autobiography that is as thoughtful as it is profoundly touching.

The third in Gilbert Hernandez’s line of original hardcovers featuring Love and Rockets’ “Fritz” in her guise as a Z-movie actress (the first two were Chance in Hell and The Troublemakers) is a trippy thriller that stars Fritz in no fewer than three roles. A beautiful waitress (Fritz, of course) and her hospital nurse brother (also Fritz) visit their estranged father, a once successful but now retired writer (amazingly enough, also Fritz), in order to find out the true reason why their mother committed suicide. When dad’s health fails, the siblings are then more concerned with the money he might leave them. The story weaves in and out of reality and hallucination and possibly back in forth in time, and to complicate things further, the sister is sexually obsessed with a mysterious man throughout the tale ― or is it her brother (at one point posing as his sister so that he might gain his and her inheritance) that is so hot and bothered by this mystery stud? And that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
