New at the Library this week:
We have several new additions to our shelves again this week. Here is a quick review of some of them.
We have just finished adding several large print books by Linda Lael Miller. Stop by and pick up a book or two…enjoy some light romance.
The first book in the set by Thrity Umrigar is now in …”Space Between Us” ….Description from Amazon… vividly capturing the social struggles of modern India in a luminous, addictively readable novel of honor, tradition, class, gender, and family. A portrayal of two women discovering an emotional rapport as they struggle against the confines of a rigid caste system.
The new Jack Reacher novel is in… ”Blue Moon”. “This is a random universe,” Reacher says. “Once in a blue moon things turn out just right.” This isn’t one of those times.” From Amazon
“Home Invasion” by William W. Johnstone. “ Home, Texas. Two men break into the house of an elderly couple. Guns are fired. Blood is spilled. When one of the intruders sues the victim—and wins—the good people of Home take the law into their own hands. Their battle, though, is just beginning. In a stunning case of backward justice—the U.S. President decides to make the town a test case to strike down the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution: Ban all guns in Home, Texas. And to enforce it, the newly formed national police force is sent in.” From Amazon
