Beginning of August 2014
For those of us who work in bookstores every day is like Christmas - boxes come in the door every day and we get to open them discovering the treasures within. Books that have been ordered in advance of their publication are the most exciting to receive - as we delight in holding for the first time the new novel by a favourite author.
This week's new arrivals include .....
No Safe House by Linwood Barclay , another thriller from one of our best selling mystery writers.
Village of Secrets, Defying the Nazis in Vichy France by Caroline Moorehead, author of A Train in Winter. This is the story of the French citizens of tiny remote villages who saved several thousand people from concentration camps - a story of determination and courage in the face of extreme danger.
The Liar's Wife by Mary Gordon, is a volume of four novellas - each one pitch perfect - each one a gem. I read an advance copy of this one - it is a treasure.
Family Meals by Michael Smith is new from this very popular and hands on chef - a beautifully put together book full of mouth watering recipes.
