The Pub Across the Pond by Mary Carter. From a Bookish Librarian--Thanks, Deborah! A disillusioned young woman buys a raffle ticket to own a pub in Ireland...and wins. Sounds like fun!
If You Ever Need Me, I Won't Be Far Away by Bruce Farrell Rosen; a memoir of award-winning writer Bruce Farrell Rosen--some very positive reviews.
A Place of Secrets by Rachel Hore; will be released for sale Jan. 31; a mystery-- an appraiser of books for an auction house, an old estate in Norfolk with a wonderful library and some very valuable books on astronomy to be evaluated. Yes, I like all of the elements!
Bring Me One of Everything by Leslie Hall Pindar
(I've begun this one--I've already flagged a couple of pages for quotes! Love her writing.) Canadians might be especially interested in this one. "The title of the book is based on what the management of the Smithsonian is said to have demanded when sending ethnographers to native villages to gather artifacts for its collection: "Bring me one of everything."
Mr. Langshaw's Square Piano: The Story of the First Pianos and How They Caused a Cultural Revolution by Madeline Goold; nonfiction; "A handwritten note inside a neglected Broadwood square piano built in 1807 leads Madeline Goold on a quest to uncover the remarkable history of these now almost forgotten musical instruments."
I've also ordered a few used books from Amazon that have been on my wish list for a while. Oh, and there are still library books that I haven't gotten through.
