The Little Friend
The second novel by Donna Tartt, bestselling author of The Goldfinch (winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize), The Little Friend is a grandly ambitious and utterly riveting novel of childhood, innocence and evil. The setting is Alexandria, Mississippi, where one Mother’s Day a little boy named Robin Cleve Dufresnes was found hanging from a tree in his parents’ yard. Twelve years later Robin’s murder is still unsolved and his family remains devastated. So it is that Robin’s sister Harriet—unnervingly bright, insufferably determined, and unduly influenced by the fiction of Kipling and Robert Louis Stevenson--sets out to unmask his killer. Aided only by her worshipful friend Hely, Harriet crosses her town’s rigid lines of race and caste and burrows deep into her family’s history of loss. Filled with hairpin turns of plot and “a bustling, ridiculous humanity worthy of Dickens” (The New York Times Book Review), The Little Friend is a work of myriad enchantments by a writer of prodigious talent. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Prism of Lyra
"The Prism of Lyra is an exploration of Human Galactic Heritage. The Prism of Lyra is a book that examines the idea of creation in a different light.

What are those purposes? Who is involved? These questions and many more are addressed, resulting in startling possibilities. The Prism of Lyra then traces various off-planet races (Lyra, Vega, the Pleiades, Orion, Zeta Reticuli, and more) through their own evolution and ties them into the developing Earth. Highlighted is the realization of our galactic interconnectedness . . . and our shared desire to return home. Explore with us the passage through . . .The Prism of Lyra."
