Trapped in Glass (The second book in the Halina series) A novel by Pam Records

Rich, satisfying, and gorgeously written… Simply mesmerizing.

Old secrets, betrayal, and faith propel Records’s latest, the second installment in the Halina series. Hegewisch is facing increasing threats and violence from Chicago’s gangsters. Halina, as a nurse’s aide, is trying her best to provide healing using Old Country cures. When Pacja’s young son is injured in a street fight, it’s up to Halina to save the boy. Records’s writing is elegant and provocative, and she wrings genuine emotions from her protagonists’ individual struggles. The pacing is expert, and the themes of memories, trauma, healing, familial bonds, race and class issues are weaved beautifully into the affecting narrative. Records’s intelligent prose brings both the era and Hegewisch, the Polish neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, alive, and her fully fleshed-out characterization combined with her deep understanding of human psyche and the intricate framework of familial relationships provide this story both authenticity and rationality. The novel is sure to earn Records a wide readership.
