Cloud Cuckoo Land
by Anthony Doerr
The heroes of " Cloud Cuckoo
Land " are trying to figure out the
world around them: Anna and
Omeir, on opposite sides of the
formidable city walls during the
1453 siege of Constantinople;
teenage idealist Seymour in an
attack on a public library in present-day Idaho; and
Konstance, on an interstellar ship bound for an exoplanet,
decades from now. Like Marie-Laure and Werner
in " All the Light We Cannot See, " Anna, Omeir, Seymour
and Konstance are dreamers and outsiders who
find resourcefulness and hope in the midst of peril.
Dedicated to " the librarians then, now and in the
years to come, " Cloud Cuckoo Land is a hauntingly
beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship -
of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.

When Time Stopped
by Ariana Neumann
In this astonishing story that
reads like a thriller, Ariana Neumann
dives into the secrets of
her father's past.
Of 34 Neumann family members,
25 were murdered by the
Nazis. One of the survivors was
Hans Neumann, who, to escape the German death net,
traveled to Berlin and hid in plain sight under the Gestapo's
eyes. What Hans experienced was so unspeakable
that, when he built an industrial empire in Venezuela, he
couldn't bring himself to talk about it. All his daughter
Ariana knew was that something terrible had happened.
When Hans died, he left Ariana a small box filled
with letters, diary entries and other memorabilia. Ten
years later, Ariana finally summoned the courage to
have the letters translated, and she began reading.
What she discovered launched her on a worldwide
search that would deliver indelible portraits of a family
loving, finding meaning and trying to survive amid the
worst that can be imagined.

WHAT JUST LANDED IN
THE VILLAGES?
by Lawrence Martin, Village of Hillsborough
Genre: Short Fiction
As this novella unfolds, a tall,
strange object has just landed
on a Villages golf fairway.
The world goes agog over
the landing, as speculation
stirs about extraterrestrials.
Villagers, however, are annoyed
by all the publicity, by
the sudden arrival of National
Guard troops and by the
disruption to their lifestyles.
Following this intriguing story
are 11 additional shorts,
some winners in Florida Writers
Association's Royal Palm
Literary Awards competition.
Q: WHAT PROMPTED YOU TO WRITE YOUR BOOK?
I write in multiple genres and short fiction is perhaps the most
enjoyable to create. Once I got the idea of something from
outer space landing on one of our golf courses, the words just
flowed. The short stories in the book, written over the last few
years, cover a variety of themes, from serious to humorous. I'm
gratified that several have won RPLA Awards.
Q: WHAT DO YOU HOPE READERS WILL TAKE AWAY FROM
YOUR BOOK?
Just to be entertained. The title novella is a mild satire on the local
environment, and in its own way could be thought-provoking. How
would we react if something like that giant object came for a visit?
Q: WHAT CLUBS, AC TIVITIES AND HOBBIES DO YOU ENJOY?
I am a past president of Writers League of The Villages, and currently
on the WLOV Board of Directors. I also put out the monthly
WLOV newsletter. Pre-COVID I was active in ukulele groups, and
will resume those soon. After writing, learning to read and play
music is my other indoor pastime. As for outdoors, my wife and I
play the executive golf courses, always walking. During the pandemic,
it's been great exercise. Don't ask about the scores!
