For June, A Novel Idea features two novelists, whose books couldn’t be more different. Both write about the challenges of difference, of motherhood, and of finding stability in a sometimes-hostile world.  

Shanti Sekaran brings us Lucky Boy, the saga of two women, strangers and cultures apart, whose lives are connected through the life of an infant boy.  

Shelby Londyn-Heath has written The Twilight Tsunami, a raw, funny, and hard-hitting account of the lives of people involved in the child welfare system.  

This month, Word By Word host Gil Mansergh has a sparkling conversation with Laurie R. King, the winner of the John Creasy Memorial Award for The Beekeeper’s Apprentice - the first of a dozen historical mysteries featuring Mary Russell and her mentor (and eventual husband) Sherlock Holmes.
