Zorrie By Laird Hunt Cover Image
$26.00
ISBN: 9781635575361
Availability: Available at One of Our Locations
Published: Bloomsbury Publishing - February 9th, 2021

I loved ZORRIE. It is hard to concentrate to read these days but I read this page by page and fell in love with Zorrie. She reminds me a bit of Olive Kitteredge with a little more kindness and love. The novel reads like every sentence is hand-picked with such tender care; I had to stop and pause a bit to let the words sink in. Laird has done a marvelous job of setting the scene while creating such true-life characters that you can almost feel their pain and love, and other emotions.

$28.00

Availability: Available at One of Our Locations
Published: Little, Brown and Company - October 26th, 2021

I spent the rainy wet chilly Memorial Day weekend on Svalbard Island in the High Arctic freezing my way through this stunning novel. THE MEMOIRS OF STOCKHOLM SVEN. Early on in the novel, the character Sven is disfigured in a mining accident caused by an avalanche soon after he arrives on Svalbard, leaving an unsettled and unfulfilling life in Stockholm. The stark landscape of the Arctic Circle in right in line with the life Sven carves out, at least for awhile until her finds his own path, and friends. Elements of the island illuminate the loneliness and cold of Svalbard, enticing Sven to head out on his own even further north. Life is never quite what we think it is going to be, and in the High Arctic there are even more surprises that test every ounce of our soul. I loved this.

The Sweetness of Water: A Novel By Nathan Harris Cover Image
$28.00
Currently Unavailable
ISBN: 9780316461276
Published: Little, Brown and Company - June 15th, 2021

And it's a debut! Nathan's writing is so enchanting, so illustrating in the physicality of detail, I had to breathe once after reading a few pages just to rest in their splendor. I feel like I got to know these characters, even George who was brought into his original light and goodness at the end. The main theme that keeps me reading fiction is the ability to learn about a time or place that I know nothing about. The Sweetness of Water does just this, and so much more.

$28.00
ISBN: 9781954118003
Availability: Available at One of Our Locations
Published: Spiegel & Grau - July 6th, 2021

I loved this story about a woman in the wilderness befriending a fox, reading him The Little Prince. She is a natural scientist so you feel like you are one with the land and the animals who inhabit it. She is a loner, unafraid to shoot and skin the elk, yet one who also feeds the magpies and fox egg yolks in their shells. It's not quaint, but a real story about what nature can bring to us if we just take the time to care and to look.
