Sarah WinmanI'm excited to welcome Sarah Winman, author of When God Was a Rabbit, to On the Bookcase. Sarah's novel reveals the love of a brother and a sister, unwinding over many years -- backlit by historical events and cultural references.

When God Was a Rabbit is a love letter to true friendship and fraternal love.
