THE SIX-LITER CLUB
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream, Multicultural
Even though the spiritual thread at the end of the story feels tacked on and conservative readers may find some material objectionable (drinking, unbelief, intent to have sex), Kraus writes a compelling story with real characters that will resonate with women of every race.
As the first black woman attending in the trauma surgical department at the Medical College of Virginia in the 1980s, Camille Weller is under a lot of pressure. She saves a patient from certain death after he loses six pints of blood, and is inducted into the prestigious Six-Liter Club. Camille thinks things will improve, but they get worse, triggering haunting nightmares about her past. When she probes into the nightmares' hidden meanings, what she finds changes the course of her life forever. (HOWARD, Apr., 320 pp., $13.99)
