Nancy's Notes - September 9, 2010

Inspirational titles: “The Inn at Angel Island” by Thomas Kinkade, “The Unfinished Gift” and “The Homecoming” by Dan Walsh.

Last week I wrote about several of our new books from the inspirational fiction section. I would like to add a few more to your list this week.  

Thomas Kinkade is a favorite of many of our readers. His newest, “The Inn at Angel Island”, is the first in the brand-new Angel Island series. Liza Martin arrives on Angel Island to sell the inn she and her brother inherited from their aunt. She is in a hurry to sell the inn and return to Boston where her life is in a shamble with a broken marriage and an unstable career. However she starts to question her life when fond memories return of the summers spent at the inn and she forms a friendship with her aunt’s housekeeper.


Dan Walsh is a new author to our library. Readers should enjoy his books we recently purchased. The first, “The Unfinished Gift”, is set in December 1943. Patrick Collins is a young boy staying with his grandfather while his father is in the army. Patrick has three items on his Christmas list: he wants to leave his grandfather’s house, he wants his father home, and he wants a forbidden toy in his grandfather’s attic.


The next book by this author is, “The Homecoming”. Shawn Collins has returned from fighting the war in Europe. He is then called upon to serve his country as a speaker on the war bond tour. Other men might jump at the chance to travel, but Shawn wants to stay home with his son and aging father, and grieve the loss of his wife.


We are just about done re-barcoding so hopefully we’ll have fewer stacks sitting around. Thanks for your patience with our messes and in a couple of months we’ll be on our new circulation system. When we are online with the new system you will then be able to see the collections of all participating libraries. We have certainly confused everyone as we have shifted books on the stacks during this project. So you may need to ask where your favorite authors are now located.


Stop in and see us: Monday through Wednesday between noon and 8:00 or Thursday through Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
