Nancy's Notes - April 23, 2015
The library is a great place to work. That is reflected in the fact that in one hundred and seven years there have been only eight library directors. They are as follows: Mrs. G.T. Eldridge, our first director; followed by Anna Nagle; Belle Birdsall; Nellie Littlefield; Ruth Smith; Marian Gannon; Nola Waddingham; and Nancy Nail, the current director. Over the years the collection has changed as well as the number of hours open and the funding available. However, stressing the importance of reading has always been our number one goal.
Stone Barrington is back in, “Hot Pursuit”, by Stuart Woods. It’s not often that he finds a woman as accustomed to the jet-set lifestyle as he, so he’s surprised when he meets a gorgeous pilot who’s moving to New York, and available for closer relationship. Their travels together lead them from Wichita to Europe, but trailing them is his new lady friend’s unstable, criminal ex-boyfriend.
Nora Roberts, one of the all time favorites, is back with, “The Liar”. Shelby Foxworth lost her husband and then she found out he was not the man she had thought he was. He took her from Tennessee to an exclusive Philadelphia suburb where he left her in crippling debt. He was an adulterer and a liar, and when Shelby tracks down his safe-deposit box, she finds multiple IDs. The man she loved wasn’t just dead. He never really existed.
Cecily Wong’s, “Diamond Head”, takes readers from China to Hawaii where they will follow four generations of a wealthy shipping family. Their rise and decline is riddled with secrets and tragic love. At the turn of the nineteenth century, Frank Leong, a wealthy shipping industrialist, moves his family from China to the island of Oahu. But something ancient follows the Leongs to Hawaii, haunting them. The parable of the red string of fate, the cord that binds one intended beloved to her perfect match, also punishes for mistakes in love, passing a destructive knot down the family line.
