Don’t Miss Our Summer ReadRS book discussion, The Coffee Trader, by David Liss. 

Bring some wine or your favorite beverage and a snack to share.

Edgar Award-winning novelist Liss provides us with a financial historical thriller set in 17th-century Amsterdam's Portuguese Jewish community. Miguel Lienzo, a former secret Jew who has fled his native Portugal is delighted when a sexy Dutch widow enlists him as partner in a secret scheme to capture market in the foreign beverage called coffee.  What follows is a series of entanglements with enemies old and new, and  a relationship with his brother's wife, an independent woman trapped in a restrictive culture.
