FICTION:

Wolf Hall - Hilary Mantel - “Dazzling. . .Thomas Cromwell remains a controversial and mysterious figure. Mantel has filled in the blanks plausibly, brilliantly. Wolf Hall has epic scale but lyric texture.”–Christopher Benfey, The New York Times Book Review

The Quiet Daughter Speaks, Ripples of a Quiet Trust & Quietly Waiting - This is a series about Paul and Susan Manford which gives you a look into their lives as they work to do the right thing when confronted with the needs of their extended family and community. As Paul and Susan live out their lives with quiet trust in God, we see the ripples of their faith spread God’s love to all those around them.

Bringing Up The Bodies - Hilary Mantel - The sequel to Hilary Mantel’s Prize winner Wolf Hall explores one of the most mystifying and frightening episodes in English history: the downfall of Anne Boleyn.

The Book of Lost Fragrances - M. J. Rose - The Book of Lost Fragrances fuses history, passion and suspense in an intoxicating web that moves from Cleopatra’s Egypt and the terrors of revolutionary France to Tibet’s battle with China and the glamour of modern-day Paris.

The Final Storm - Jeff Shaara - The Final Storm illuminates the heroism and sacrifice that defined the war in the Pacific, bringing the conflict to live as only Jeff Shaara can. A fitting conclusion to one of the most riveting sagas in military fiction.

The Unfinished Gift - Dan Walsh - Set at Christmastime in 1943, The Unfinished Gift is the engaging story of a family in need of forgiveness. With simple grace, it reminds us of the small things that affect powerful change in our hearts. A young boy’s prayers, a shoe box of love letters, and even a half-carved soldier, long forgotten. This nostalgic story of reconciliation will touch your heart.

Innocent - Scott Turow - The sequel to Presumed Innocent is a cunning, intricate thriller, meticulously constructed and superbly paced, full of twists and surprises.

Hell Is Empty - Craig Johnson - Book No 7 in the Walt Longmire Mystery series. Well-read and world-weary, Sheriff Walt Longmire has been maintaining order in Wyoming’s Absaroka County for more than thirty years, but in this riveting seventh outing, he is pushed to his limits.

Juliette Ascending - R. Poole-Carter - Like the baskets of Jasmine that decorate the French Quarter in old New Orleans, Rosemary Poole-Carter’s book is rich and heady. As she brings one of the world’s favorite love stories to vibrant, aching life in this compelling setting, readers will be swept away. A powerful story that brings life to the Aristocracy of New Orleans in the days following the Civil War.
