News - week of 19 October 2015
Some of the notable new releases this week
New in hardcover
Golden Age by Jane Smiley – the final volume of a trilogy – begins with Some Luck, continues with Early Warning and now Golden Age – I can’t wait to read this one after reading the earlier novels this summer. This is the story of a family, beginning just after the First World War – believe me if you read the first one you’ll be reading the second & third!!
The Mountain Shadow by Gregory David Roberts – author of Shantaram – this is the long awaited sequel, a great big book.
The Lake House by Kate Morton – this very popular author does it again, seventy years after a mysterious family tragedy at a lakeside estate an investigation is re-opened.
The Moth Catcher by Ann Cleeves – a new Vera mystery novel. Can’t wait to read this one!
Mrs. Roosevelt’s Confidante by Susan Elia MacNeal – a new Maggie Hope mystery, set in 1941 soon after the attack on Pearl Harbor as Winston Churchill arrives in Washington along with, of course, special agent Maggie Hope.
The best book of the season for Halloween for the kids – The Ride-by-Nights, a poem by Walter de la Mare, with wonderful illustrations by Carolina Rabei - way better than candy!
*****On a completely separate and personal note – do I have a subscriber in the Parry Sound area who leaves for the winter and has an indoor heated parking space available for rent from sometime in November until late March or early April? If so please let me know – I have a small car we only drive in the summer that needs a place for the winter. Thanks, Charlotte
