The following books were added to our library in March
by Jody Hedlund
This is book 2 in the Orphan Train series. Marianne Neumann is looking for her sister Sophie. She thinks her sister may have been placed on an orphan train that left New York to place orphans in railroad towns in Illinois. She gets a job as a placing agent on another orphan train and searches for her sister wherever they stop. Andrew Brady is her fellow placing agent on the trip. His calm manner gets them through difficult situations that occur as the orphans are selected by families for adoption.
by Kevin A. Thompson
The subtitle of this book is “8 commitments of couples who laugh, love, & last”. The book cover states: “Thompson shows you how to see your marriage as bigger than your selves, avoid both apathy and aggression, release the desire for power, make and maintain peace, endure difficult times and more”.
Six Hours One Friday
by Max Lucado
The book cover states: “In Six Hours One Friday, Max Lucado delves into the meaning of Jesus’ last hours on the cross. Through his death, your life has purpose and meaning. You are forgiven and loved by a Savior who died for you. And an empty tomb proclaims that death does not have the final word.” Max Lucado is easy reading but also thought provoking. Reading this book during the Easter season would be a good way to focus on Christ’s sacrifice for us.
The Light Before Day
by Suzanne Woods Fisher
Have you ever been to Nantucket Island? I have been there but did not take time to learn its history. Much of this novel is based on true events that occurred between 1837 and 1846. Henry and Hitty Macy are to receive a vast inheritance from their grandmother but there are provisions in the will that they will have to fulfill or the inheritance will go to Tristram Macy, their father’s swindling business partner.
Have you seen?…
Do you have our library’s copy of Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxes? It is missing and I would appreciate knowing if someone has it and forgot to fill out the check-out card. When you are return-ing books, please place them in the white boxes and not back on the shelf.
