McNally Robinson Booksellers invites you to join Gabriele Goldstone as she celebrates the virtual launch of Tainted Amber (Ronsdale Press), featuring a conversation hosted by Jodi Carmichael.
Being young and in love can be a wonderful thing but in 1937, in the Third Reich, it's all about genetics not romance.
Tainted Amber is the third book in Gabriele Goldstone’s series for teens and adults exploring the tumultuous life of her mom during the Stalin and Nazi years. Katya is now 18 and working as a maid in rural East Prussia where Nazi fervour runs high. Inspired by stones, amber, and her mother’s memories,
Gabriele Goldstone, writes the stories she wishes she could have read when she was growing up in Winnipeg as the daughter of immigrants. Her two previous YA novels were The Kulak’s Daughter and Broken Stone. The Kulak’s Daughter received a Silver Moonbeam Award, and was a Resource Links, Best of 2010, pick. Both books were shortlisted in the Manitoba book awards for young people. Visit her at gabrielegoldstone.com where she shares research behind her stories.
