It’s hard to explain mankind’s connection to wild animals, the desire for some to possess and capture, other’s deep need to protect and conserve. In Pride of Eden, Brown illustrates what happens when we hit a crisis regarding our treatment of exotic game. It’s a compelling story featuring as many four-legged characters as humans. —Rachel

Sligar's novel is one of suspense and intrigue, but more importantly it reset's the narrative or women's mental health and credibility in their work. I loved the novel's commentary on art and photography, and thought the current running through the book comparing Kate and Miranda's unraveling mental health to the act of archiving was brilliant. — Christy
