Robyn: Maryse- check your Messenger because I wrote to you about my love of the book A Charm of Finches. Just an exquisite continuation of An Exhaltation of Larks by Suanne Lacquer. If you read her Fish Tales you know what I’m talking about.
Jan: Yes, if you liked Exaltation of Larks you should def read Charm of Finches. One of my top reads of the year. … A kind of follow-on from An Exaltation Of Larks. … it was my only 5 star read for the month. I floved it. OMG Javier!
Rebecca: Book 2 IS just as amazing! When I was reading- I was torn between keeping going because I couldn’t stop- and having to stop because it was SO much. Suanne Laqueur has a gift that is rare and is exquisite. I want to follow her around so I can hear her thoughts as she has them- just an amazing woman and brilliant talent!
MichelleS: Still kicking myself for waiting on Larks!!! It was SOOOOO good. …Favorite April read: Larks, hands down
Grey: Wow, I finished An Exaltation of Larks… I get it now.
About book #1:
September 11, 1973: Eleven-year-old Alejandro Penda watches from his apartment window as Santiago, Chile falls to a military coup, destroying his family and his childhood. Arriving alone in America, he’s taken in by the Larks: a prominent family in the town of Guelisten. Though burdened by unresolved grief for his disappeared parents, he becomes fiercely loyal to the Larks, eventually marrying one of their daughters, Valerie.
September 11, 2001: Javier Landes watches from his apartment window as New York City falls to terrorism. As one of Manhattan’s top-paid male escorts, this professional lover has never lacked for company and is loyal only to himself. But in the wake of 9/11, Jav is named guardian for an orphaned nephew in Guelisten and must open his carefully-guarded heart to pain he’s long suppressed.
Alex, Valerie and Jav meet first in their twenties, with a sudden attraction each finds strange and compelling. When they meet again in their forties, they discover not only is their bond still strong, but their life experiences are strangely similar. Each was shaped by a 9/11, and their unfinished business from the past will change everything they know about love, loyalty and friendship.
