Nancy's Notes - November 18, 2010

“Fly Away Home” by Jennifer Weiner, “Shadow Zone” by Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen.

You may think the library staff never works since we were closed one evening and Veterans Day last week and we were also closed for training on Monday. Hopefully now we’ve attended workshops on our new circulation system we’ll be better able to answer your questions about its potential.

  In the past readers have enjoyed books by Jennifer Weiner. Her newest title is, “Fly Away Home”. When Sylvie Serfer met Richard Woodruff in law school, she had lots of opinions. Decades later, Sylvie has remade herself as the ideal politician’s wife, her hippie-chick wardrobe replaced by tailored knit suits. At fifty-seven, she acknowledges that her job is staying twenty pounds thinner than she was in her twenties and tending to her husband, the senator. Lizzie, the Woodruff’s younger daughter, is a recovering addict. Her older sister, Diana, an emergency room physician, has everything and yet she’s trapped in a loveless marriage. After Richard’s extramarital affair makes headlines, the three women are drawn into the national spotlight. Once the press conference is over, each is forced to reconsider her life, who she is and who she is meant to be.

       Iris Johansen has written, “Shadow Zone” with her son Roy Johansen. Deep below the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, lies the astonishing remains of a mysterious lost city, much like the legendary Atlantis. While mapping the ancient underwater of Marinth, marine architect Hannah Bryson makes a shocking discovery: She may have finally uncovered the truth about the cities demise. With the revelation of a key artifact, Hannah realizes that the buried city’s explosive secret could have dire consequences for the modern-day world. When the artifact is hijacked Hannah stands alone between a power-hungry enemy and widespread destruction.
