News week of 20 April 2017

A grey and cold day – but Mitch has his canoe paddles out across the street so it must be spring!

It has been a quiet week with only a few notable new releases.

The ever popular Wilbur Smith has a new Courtney Family novel War Cry, a thrilling tale of espionage, adventure, and danger, set in Africa from the Great War’s end to the dark days of World War II.

Donna Leon treats us to a taste of Venice with a new novel Earthly Remains, and the previous one, The Waters of Eternal Youth is now out in paperback. After a few less than superior books, I think Donna Leon is back in very good form with these two new Commissario Guido Brunetti mystery novels – and who doesn’t want to spend time in Venice!

Barbara Gowdy against all odds has completed her new book Little Sister – exploring the astonishing powers of empathy, the question of where we end and others begin and the fierce bonds of motherhood and sisterhood.

And just a reminder – there is an event worth attending Friday night – I am sure a good time will be had by all, supporting a great cause!
