The Sun and Other Stars by Brigid Pasulka (2014)

Brigid Pasulka’s sophomore effort delights as much as her debut (A Long, Long Time Ago and Essentially True). We leave Poland for a small village on the Italian coast where soccer is king. 22-year-old Etto is struggling after the deaths of his mother and twin brother. He and his father run their butcher shop with minimal communication. It isn’t until a disgraced Ukrainian soccer star and his family come to town that life begins to change.

In this lush and lyrical tale, the residents of San Benedetto come vividly to life. The Sun and Other Stars is an engaging story of loss, healing, community, passion, friendship, and love that will keep you turning the pages well into the night.
