From an award-winning author, a novel about a Vietnamese American family’s ties to The Little House on the Prairie Jobless with a PhD, Lee Lien returns home to her Chicago suburb from grad school, only to find herself contending with issues she’s evaded since college. But when her brother disappears, he leaves behind an object from their mother’s Vietnam past that stirs up a forgotten childhood dream: a gold-leaf brooch, abandoned by an American reporter in Saigon back in 1965, that might be an heirloom belonging to Laura Ingalls Wilder. As Lee explores the tenuous facts of this connection, she unearths more than expected—a trail of clues and enticements that lead her from the dusty stacks of library archives to hilarious prairie life reenactments and ultimately to San Francisco, where her findings will transform strangers’ lives as well as her own. A dazzling literary mystery about the true origins of a time-tested classic, Pioneer Girl is also the deeply moving tale of a second-generation Vietnamese daughter, the parents she struggles to honor, the missing brother she is expected to bring home—even as her discoveries yield dramatic insights that will free her to live her own life to its full potential.

Singing 'Rio Rita' 15 year old Mucha trudges along the road to her execution. But much more than death Mucha fears expulsion from the Collective in which she fills a real and useful part. The comrades come to her when they need warmth and tenderness and she's happy in this role. (Although someone really should tell Stalin or Hitler that they need to make knickers with better elastic!) During the siege of Leningrad, Mucha takes flight over her beloved city. She sees Stalin sitting on a red star on top of the Kremlin, smoking his pipe and drinking tea and wondering what further anguish he can inflict on his people. The Naked Pioneer Girl is a searing indictment of war and a devastating look at the role of the Russian army during WW2.

Living the high life in LA – cocktail parties, exotic restaurants and a cosmopolitan boyfriend – Ree Drummond thinks she’s got it all figured out. But, try as she might, she can’t shake the feeling that something is missing. Returning to her hometown to get her life in order, Ree is struck by a bolt of lightning - a blue-eyed, strong-jawed, enigmatic cowboy. She calls him Marlboro Man, and though he’s a million miles away from anything she’s ever known before, their attraction is undeniable. But with her family coming apart at the seams, her ex-boyfriend still on the scene, and a new career waiting for her in the city, their courtship is far from simple. As life on the ranch beckons (complete with cows, horses, prairie fires and lots of manure), is she really ready to trade in her high heels for Wranglers? Heartwarming, funny and passionate, Pioneer Woman is a story of romance against the odds, and of how love can find you in the most unexpected places.
