Both Sarahlyn Bruck and Orly Konig’s novels weave tales of love and loss, and how to pick up the pieces afterwards. In Sarahlyn Bruck’s Designer You, a newly-widowed mother challenged with grieving the loss of her husband and co-owner of their DIY empire learns how to be a single parent. In Orly Konig’s Carousel Beach, a granddaughter connects with her deceased grandmother’s first love, a 90-year-old carousel horse carver suffering from Alzheimer’s and, in doing so, “untangles the intertwined secrets of love, heartbreak, and misunderstandings between three generations of strong willed women.” Sponsored by Friends of the Oakton Library.
