Has our recent weather given you the winter blues? Do you just want to curl up inside by the fire and forget the wind howling and rain falling? Why not grab a cup of hot chocolate and some of our new fiction and escape to a more pleasant place? Recent additions to our collection include:
Fans of the hit PBS series Downton Abbey will enjoy Ashenden by Elizabeth Wilhide. This epic saga of the upstairs and downstairs residents of an English country house spans a 240 year period and includes the story of the architect that built on the original sight, tales from soldiers stationed in the house during World War I and how a young couple restored the house in the 1950s.
In Umbrella by Will Self, a psychiatrist at a London mental hospital investigates a group of unconscious patients who exhibit a peculiar type of physical tic. As his research progresses, Zachary discovers a miracle drug that could save the patients but the hospital has other, darker ideas for its use.
Shadow Woman by Linda Howard finds Lizette Henry waking up only to discover that she has a different face and has lost two years of her memory. As Lizette teams up with Xavier, a mysterious man who helps her instigate her disturbing flashbacks, the pair uncovers a conspiracy that may threaten both of their lives.
A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan and Brandon Anderson is the long-awaited conclusion to Jordan’s best-selling “Wheel of Time” series. It was completed by Jordan’s widow and his long-time editor using notes and partial writings that were left after his abrupt passing.
Other new titles by your favorite authors include The Road to Cardinal Valley by Earlene Fowler, Collateral Damage by Stuart Woods, The Perfect Marriage by Kimberla Lawson Roby, Private London by James Patterson and Die Easy by Zoe Sharp.
We look forward to seeing everyone soon at the library.
