Title: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender
Author: Leslye Walton
Published: March 25, 2014
Genre: Contemporary (with some fantastical elements)
Told from Ava’s contemporary point-of-view, she chronicles the lives and deaths of her ancestors, as well as the peculiarly tragic ways in which love made fools of them.
Magical realism, lyrical prose, and the pain and passion of human love haunt this hypnotic tale.
