The dispossessed : a novel
Borbély, Szilárd, 1964-2014, author
New York : Harper Perennial, [2016]
In a tiny village in northeast Hungary a young, unnamed boy warily chronicles his family's struggles to survive. Ostracized because of his father's Jewish heritage and his mother's connections to the Kulaks, who once owned land and supported the fascist Horthy regime before it was toppled by Communists, their situation is worst than most. Related through a variety of narrative voices, these accounts reveal the history of Hungary through the physical and psychic traumas of two World Wars, and the country's treatment of Jews.

The weaver : a novel
Itäranta, Emmi, 1976- author
New York, NY : Harper Voyager, [2016]
Eliana is a model citizen of the island, a weaver in the prestigious House of Webs. She also harbors a dangerous secret she can dream, an ability forbidden by the island's elusive council of elders. No one talks about the dreamers, the undesirables ostracized from society. But the web of protection Eliana has woven around herself begins to unravel when a young girl is found lying unconscious in a pool of blood on the stones outside the house. Robbed of speech by her attackers, the only clue to her identity is one word tattooed in invisible ink across her palm: Eliana. Why does this mysterious girl bear her name? What links her to the weaver and could she hold Eliana's fate in her hand? As Eliana finds herself growing closer to this injured girl she is bound to in ways she doesn't understand, the enchanting lies of the island begin to crumble, revealing a deep and ancient corruption. Joining a band of brave rebels determined to expose the island's dark secrets, Eliana becomes a target of ruthless forces determined to destroy her. To save herself and those she loves, she must call on the power within her she thought was her greatest weakness: her dreams.
