eSequels indexes character, location and subject as well as author and title so you can identify a series that you may recall only vaguely.

eSequels gives brief annotations that describe each title without "giving away" any surprise endings.

And last, but most important for some readers, eSequels lists the novels in the correct reading sequence so you can begin at the beginning rather than blunder into the middle of "Act III."

Book Discussion:  Join us on Thursday, August 22nd at 6:30pm for our next adult book discussion, Honolulu by Alan Brennert

Virtually the only way for a young girl such as Jin to escape the poverty, isolation, and desperation of Korea in the early twentieth century was to advertise herself as a “picture bride,” eagerly available for marriage to a presumably young, honorable fellow countryman who had already fled to the burgeoning island paradise of Hawaii. Possessed of an insatiable desire for education and an innocent sense of adventure, Jin accepts Noh’s offer, only to realize that she’s traded one form of oppression for another when she suffers physical attacks from an alcoholic husband and the psychological abuse of a chauvinistic society. Spanning more than four decades, Jin’s plaintive yet intrepid tale of spirited courage and staunch resolve is as audacious as that of the vibrant island nation whose own polyglot heritage becomes increasingly endangered as it transitions from U.S. territory to fiftieth state. Brennert’s lush tale of ambition, sacrifice, and survival is immense in its dramatic scope yet intimate in its emotive detail.
