Jesmyn Ward-Sing, unburied, sing

December 13th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Jojo is thirteen years old and trying to understand what it means to be a man. He doesn’t lack in fathers to study, chief among them his Black grandfather, Pop. But there are other men who complicate his understanding: his absent White father, Michael, who is being released from prison; his absent White grandfather, Big Joseph, who won’t acknowledge his existence; and the memories of his dead uncle, Given, who died as a teenager.    His mother, Leonie, is an inconsistent presence in his and his toddler sister’s lives. She is an imperfect mother in constant conflict with herself and those around her. She is Black and her children’s father is White.  c. 2017

But the ringleader escapes without a trace.   c. 2017

Fredrik Backman-A deal of a lifetime

December 13th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

It all begins with a father telling a story to his son on Christmas Eve. But this isn’t your typical Christmas story. The father admits to his son that he’s taken a life but he won’t say whose – not yet. One week earlier, in a hospital late at night, the man met a five-year-old girl with cancer. She’s a smart kid – smart enough to know that she won’t beat cancer by drawing with crayons all day, but it seems to make the adults happy, so she keeps doing it. As the man tells his son about this plucky little girl, he slowly reveals more about himself: while he may be a successful businessman, idolized by the media and his peers, he knows he failed as a parent.  c. 2017

December 13th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Detective Michael Bennett and his family are about to be haunted…by a father’s worst nightmare–the signs he should have seen and a son’s desperate cry for help. Reeling from a crisis that would destroy lesser families, the Bennetts escape New York for a much-needed vacation. An idyllic country town in the Maine woods is haunted…by an epidemic emptying its streets and preying on its youth. Turns out the vacation brochures don’t tell the full story-the seemingly perfect community has a deadly vice.   c. 2017

Nora Roberts-Come sundown

December 12th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it’s kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine’s aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don’t talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she’s dead. But she isn’t. She is not far away, part of a new family, one she never chose – and her mind has been shattered…   c. 2017

Martha Hall Kelly-Lilac girls

December 12th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline’s world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939 – and then sets its sights on France. An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. In a tense atmosphere of watchful eyes and suspecting neighbors, one false move can have dire consequences. For an ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad for a government medical position seems like her ticket out of a desolate life. Once hired, though, she finds herself trapped in a male-dominated realm of Nazi secrets and power. The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when the unthinkable happens.  c. 2017
