The Maze of Bones - Grace Cahill, the last matriarch of the world’s most powerful family, has died. At the last moment, she changed her will, giving her descendants a choice - one million dollars or a clue to the source of the family’s power.

The Rainbow People - Originally collected as part of a WPA project in the 1930s, 20 Chinese folktales, organized into sections with themes like “Tricksters” or “Virtues and Vices,” each feature an introduction that places the story in the context of its original telling and shows how the tales might relate to the Chinese-American experience. 208 pages.
