The Witch of Bourbon Street

The Witch of Bourbon Street had a pretty convoluted plotline, but I’ll give it a go.  Frankie is a witch from an old family who has long denied her powers.  She moves back to the family home that witnessed several mysterious deaths several generations back.  The disappearance of Frankie’s son and appearance of her long-lost daughter force Frankie to confront her past.

All the Light We Cannot See

If you look this book up, it is described as a story about a blind girl and a German boy in World War II France.  And that’s true.  But it’s also the story of a town called Saint Malo – how it is occupied, destroyed, and rebuilt.  It’s also a fairy tale of the old school, full of darkness and evil and danger and goodness and redemption.  And yes, it is a story about a girl and boy who live a world turned upside down.
