From the Librarian's Shelf...
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 • Posted October 31, 2013

You may remember that the library and the Girl Scouts partnered last year to put up the Little Library box by the playground behind the building. People can swap books there, and the children’s books are especially popular. However, some of the books don’t make it back. So, we could use your help in keeping the Little Library supplied. If you have children’s books that nobody is using anymore, please consider donating some of them to the library—you’ll be de-cluttering and helping a good cause at the same time!

Soon, he’s covering the disappearance and presumed murder of former Marine Jeremy Wesson, the biological son of the pair of terrorists who remain on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.”

Burial Rights by Hannah Kent (F KEN)

“Based on a true story, Burial Rites is an astonishing and moving novel about the truths we claim to know and the ways in which we interpret what we’re told. In beautiful, cut-glass prose, Hannah Kent portrays Iceland’s formidable landscape, in which every day is a battle for survival, and asks, how can one woman hope to endure when her life depends upon the stories told by others?”

The Quest by Nelson DeMille (F DEM)

“Two reporters, a devastatingly beautiful photographer, and a mercenary soldier are caught in the center of an Ethiopian civil war. When they save a wounded prisoner, they hear the most amazing account of the location of Christ’s cup from the Last Supper. Thus begins their Quest—a deadly adventure that pits them against murderous tribesmen, assassins, fanatical Coptic monks, and ultimately, against themselves.”

The Wanderer by Robyn Carr (F CAR Thu.1)

“Nestled on the Oregon Coast is a small town of rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands.”

With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin (F SUN Win.1) Christian Fiction

When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet for the first time.”

No Safe Harbor by Elizabeth Ludwig (F LUD Edg.1) Christian Fiction

“Cara Hamilton had thought her brother to be dead. Now, she leaves Ireland for New York, desperate to find him. She’s then thrust into a world of subterfuge, veiled threats, and attempted murder.”

The End of the Old Ways by Harold Brannan (F BRA)

“The clash of societies along the Texas Frontier in the last half of the nineteenth century produced a violent struggle between Comanches and settlers. Depredations were committed on both sides. The novel follows some of the main historic events of that time through the eyes of a young Texan, Thomas Sutton, who entered the struggle under the guise of fierce enmity because of depredations wreaked upon his family.”

Storm Front by John Sandford (F SAN Flo.7)

“Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: You’re about to get a visitor. It’s an Israeli cop, and she’s tailing a man who’s smuggled out an extraordinary relic. Some very bad men are chasing the relic, and they don’t care who’s in the way or what they have to do to get it.”
