News week of 19 April 2018

As the week of 19 April comes to an end, I look out my window and see that Mitch has canoe paddles on display, and I just received copies of Top 60 Canoe Routes of Ontario by Kevin Callan, but it is still very much winter in Parry Sound!

New in paperback

The Paris Spy by Susan Elia Macneal is now out in paperback. You can read my review on our website. An earlier novel in this series His Majesty’s Hope is now especially interesting with today’s news that Dr. Hans Asperger is alleged to have “assisted in the Third Reich’s ‘euthanasia’ programme”.


Susanna Kearsley is back with Bellewether . “Spellbinding! I’ve loved every one of Susanna’s books”, says Diana Gabaldon. And I am sure all of her many fans agree!

The Last Neanderthal by Claire Cameron is an enthralling story of two women separated by millennia but linked by and epic journey that transforms the evolution of the human race.

The Dying Detective by Leif GW Persson is a book my husband enthused about last summer when he read it. Now out in paperback, I have set a copy aside to read the next time I’m on a plane.

The Shoe on the Roof by Will Ferguson – described as an explosively imaginative tour de force that questions our definitions of sanity and madness.


New in hardcover

Undiscovered Country by Kelly O’Connor McNees is another new novel about the relationship between Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hickok. I recently read Amy Bloom’s book White Houses on the same theme – this one is on the top of my “next to read” pile.

A Higher Loyalty – Truth, Lies, and Leadership – by James Comey. If you’re not too Trumped out here is another perspective on the dangerous soap opera of American politics today.
