BOOK CLUB PICK FOR July 2020 | "Universe of Two"

by Stephen Kiernan

On the first Tuesday of every month, The Bookstore Plus hosts a unique Book Club experience where readers have the opportunity to discuss the book club pick with the author!  On Tuesday, July 7th, 2020, at 7:00 pm the author, Stephen Kiernan, will join us IN PERSON and answer questions about his new release, "Universe of Two". Our book club is open to the public. 


A love story set in 1944 amid the development of the atomic bomb, this novel tells the tale of Charlie Fish, a young math whiz ordered to build an essential component of the bomb, and his sweetheart Brenda, who is not allowed to know what he's working on, but who pushes him to finish his job like a good soldier. After the war, they spend the rest of their lives seeking redemption -- and they find it.

“Stephen Kiernan has pulled off the nearly impossible, reminding us by wrapping a war story in a love story that although we hold the power for our own extinction, we also have the power to redeem, heal, and save. The most tender, terrifying, relevant book you’ll read this year.” — Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of THOSE WHO SAVE US and THE LOST FAMILY

“Kiernan’s finest work to date. … A brilliant job of alternating the narrative voices as well as the perspective. Charlie and Brenda’s lives are cloaked in secret emotions and secret missions, but they find that love is a balm. Kiernan has crafted a romance for the ages, and a tribute to the hard working Americans who grappled with the morality of their war duties. Novels like UNIVERSE OF TWO ensure that readers do not forget the past. – Pamela Klinger-Horn, Excelsior Bay Books
