Harriet, a middle-aged, warm-hearted widow, owns an antique store on Main Street in Elm Grove, Nebraska. Into her life walks a young recently-divorced painter named Rachel. Harriet displays Rachel’s work in the shop and also rents her the apartment above the store. But when a treasured vase disappears from the store, Harriet has reason to suspect her new friend. The friendship survives, however, and the true shoplifter is discovered to be Mabel, the bossy town gossip. Meanwhile, both Harriet and Rachel find romance in the form of suitable men. This is a story about small-town gossip and small-town charity; about love of antiques and love of people; and about what it means to be an independent and strong-minded woman.

Princess June
A Novel
Veronica Lee
ISBN 1-56474-346-2
288 pages, paperback, $14.95
"My father was a pimp. A gangster. I think he pretty much did it all. Money laundering, extortion, burglary, smuggling, God knows what else. But I didn't know too much about his business side. He didn't involve me in that, because I was a girl."

Junee was born after the Japanese occupation and before the Korean War, into a culture built on Confucian patriarchy and now dominated by American military and cultural forces. She had to learn the ropes on her own, and learn to distinguish between people who would lend a hand and those who would exploit her unfortunate circumstances.

Princess June is an introspective and compassionate, yet unflinching portrayal of a resilient soul in the making and of two disparate races trying to understand one another as human beings.
