A new adult non-fiction selection is “First Friends: the powerful, unsung (and unelected) people who shaped our presidents” by Gary Ginsberg. This New York Times Bestsellerprovides a fresh insight into the lives of seven of those that held the most powerful political office in the world by looking at the people on whom they relied.
New adult fiction titles include “The Wrong Side” by Robert Bailey, book 2 in the Bocephus Haynes Series; “Dick Francis’s Gamble” and “Pulse” by Felix Francis; “Yellow Wife” by Sadeqa Johnson; and three novels by the popular psychological suspense author, Lisa Jewell, “The Girls in the Garden”, “The Third Wife” and “Before I Met You”.
We have also added “Daughter of Rome”, another selection by Tessa Afshar, a biblical and inspirational historical fiction author. This author was born in the Middle East and lived there for the first fourteen years of her life. She then moved to England, where she survived boarding school for girls and fell in love with Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte, before moving to the United States permanently. Her conversion to Christianity in her twenties changed the course of her life forever. Tessa holds a Master of Divinity from Yale, where she was elected as the co-chair of the Evangelical Fellowship at the Divinity School for one year. She served in women and prayer ministries for twenty years before becoming a full-time writer and speaker.
New magazines this week are Mother Earth News, Time, People, North Dakota Horizons, Grit, National Geographic History, Family Handyman, Good Housekeeping, Health, National Geographic, Prevention, Ranger Rick and Reader’s Digest.
