New week of 8 March 2016
Back from a long winter holiday to find new spring releases arriving every day – some of the most notable are
New in hardcover
Carry Me by Peter Behrens
Set in Great Britain pre WW1, Germany pre WW2, and post war North America. This is a wonderful novel, part love story, and part history as the Nazi party rises to power despite the disbelief of many of the German people. Couldn’t put it down!
Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon
The fabulous story of the last flight and the destruction of the great Hindenburg air ship. The real history and people involved are woven into the author’s speculation about the true cause of the fiery crash.
Also of Note
The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel
The Photographer’s Wife by Suzanne Joinson
New in paperback
The Three Sisters Bar & Hotel by Katherine Govier
Very exciting to finally have a new book from this author! Set in Western Canada the story follows a family from the early 1900s, and a tragic unsolved disappearance, to the present time.
Evening Chorus by Helen Humphreys
Beautifully written and told story about a young woman in England during the Second World War while her husband is imprisoned in Germany. When another man comes into her life decisions are made that affect all of their lives, and those of their family members. One of the best books you’ll read this year.
Illuminations by Andrew O’Hagan
Intriguing story about a woman photographer from Canada who ends her days in England, where a young man finds his own way while discovering this woman’s past.
A Beauty by Connie Gault
Now in paperback this was one of the best books I read last year. The story of a Prairie town during the depression, the arrival of a beautiful young woman, and the life-changing effect she has on those she meets.
HAPPY READING !!
