Feb 17th, 2015--Lincoln by Gore Vidal
In this profoundly moving work of epic proportion and intense human sympathy, Abraham Lincoln is observed by his loved ones, his rivals, and his future assassin. Get to know Lincoln, the man, the political figure and the president who entered into a scene that many doubted that he could fix. Follow him through his trials and tribulations as he becomes arguably one of the most loved and admired leaders of America. Beautifully written.
Mar 17th, 2015--The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.
