Dear Librarians,

It's 1994, and Adam, a drug addict from New York City, arrives at a kibbutz in Israel with a medieval sapphire brooch. There he joins six other damaged people, whose lives become entangled and changed forever over that fateful summer. Between them glows the magnificent brooch with its perilous backstory spanning three continents and seven centuries.

SAFEKEEPING is a recommended read for summer 2015 by The Boston Globe, which called the book "a wise and memorable debut by a novelist of great talent and originality"; star-reviewed by Shelf Awareness; acclaimed by The Globe and MailTablet MagazineBooklist, and Library Journal; and can be found at number two on BuzzFeed's "53 Books You Won't Be Able to Put Down."
