Author Alyson Richman will speak and sign her new novel, The Rhythm of Memory.
Octavio Ribeiro courted his wife Salome with words of great poets through his love of literature, truth, and beauty. She fell in love with his fierce intelligence and uncompromising passion. When a sudden coup brings a brutal dictator into power, anyone who resists is in grave danger.
Salome desperately wants Octavio to put his family's safety first and not speak out against the new regime. But when he refuses to listen to her Salome is the one to pay the price. Octavio finds political asylum for them in Sweden, but for Salome the path back to love is full of painful secrets and she fears they can never go home again.
