I think its time to write about some new books that have arrived at the Cherokee Public Library. It seems like they come in spurts and spring has produced a bonanza of enticing authors and titles.
I am currently reading Prayers for Sale by Sandra Dallas. It takes place during the depression high in the Rocky Mountains where an old woman is sharing her story with a new arrival in the mining community. Quilting plays a large part and the descriptions of the landscape are wonderful.
Next on my list to read is Elizabeth Berg's Home Safe. The cover blurb says it is "a richly resonant story of a mother and daughter in emotional transit." A recent widow, a husband who lead a double life and phone call from a stranger all combine in the story elements. Sounds good to me.
Another I'm looking forward to is Water, Stone, Heart by Will North. A divorced college professor moves from Philadelphia to England to explore the world of stone wall construction. Throw in some magical surroundings, an eccentric village, a little romance and an interesting plot looks to be the result.
Luanne Rice is always a very popular author. Her newest title, The Geometry of Sisters, is set on the New England Coast and involves a family reeling from the tragic loss of a father and sister. Three pairs of sisters are the main characters.
Vision in White by Nora Roberts is book one in the Bride Quartet. Wedding planners with all the accompanying folderol seem odd for this author, but I guess she did start out as a romance writer so it will probably be a nice read.
Also new on the shelf or anticipated soon are Macomber's Summer on Blossom Street, M. H. Clark's Just Take My Heart, Patterson's 8th Confession, Connelly's Scarecrow, Butcher's Turn Coat, Johansen's Deadlock, Grisham's The Associate, Sanford's Wicked Prey, Mott-Davidson's Fatally Flaky and several paperbacks by popular authors.
Take a look at the new shelf! If you don't see what you're wanting, we'll be happy to put a reserve on it.
