The December Lunch in the Loft with Kristina was postponed due to weather, so we are especially excited to welcome here this month on President's Day. Two narratives, one concerning Nazi spies and the other a troubled boy in contemporary Oregon converge at the halfway point in this lovely novel of espionage, reincarnation and doomed romance. Kristina, the mother of two darling sons herself, is particularly moving when she writes of the mother's terror as her young son pulls farther and farther away from her. Kristina is a charming speaker and a delightful guest.
Beach Books welcomes back Kristina McMorris with her new novel, The Pieces We Keep. She was a delight the last time she visited and we are so excited to see her again. Her book evokes the depth of a mother's bond with her child, and the power of personal histories to echo through generations. Cost: $20 // includes lunch and a book!

Come hear Kristina reads from her new book Bridge Of Scarlet Leaves. Los Angeles, 1941. Violinist Maddie Kern's life seemed destined to unfold with the predictable elegance of a Bach concerto. Then she fell in love with Lane Moritomo. Her brother's best friend, Lane is the handsome, ambitious son of Japanese immigrants. Maddie was prepared for disapproval from their families, but when Pearl Harbor is bombed the day after she and Lane elope, the full force of their decision becomes apparent. In the eyes of a fearful nation, Lane is no longer just an outsider, but an enemy.
When her husband is interned at a war relocation camp, Maddie follows, sacrificing her Juilliard ambitions. Behind barbed wire, tension simmers and the line between patriot and traitor blurs. As Maddie strives for the hard-won acceptance of her new family, Lane risks everything to prove his allegiance to America, at tremendous cost.
Skillfully capturing one of the most controversial episodes in recent American history, Kristina McMorris draws readers into a novel filled with triumphs and heartbreaking loss - an authentic, moving testament to love, forgiveness, and the enduring music of the human spirit.
