New On the Shelf

Refuge Cove by Janet Dailey.  Alaska was going to be a fresh start for Emily Hunter, a new place to live with the soon-to-be husband that prompted the move.  However, while Alaska is beautiful her potential spouse is quickly revealed as a monster.  Forced to flee into the wilderness, Emily quickly loses hope, until she spots a small plane in the distance.  Bush pilot John Wolf can hardly believe it when he rescues the woman in the Alaskan wilds, or his protective instincts when he finds out she is on the run from a predator.  Emily brings up feelings John thought long buried, but letting her into his life would mean sharing a painful history he’d thought he left behind. 

Court of Lies by Gerry Spence.  Lillian Adams is going to be tried for the murder of her husband, and the judge presiding over the case has been like a father to Lillian since she was a child.  One would think Judge John Murray should step down, but both the prosecutor and defense attorney feel that he has to be involved.  The defense knows that another judge would be an almost guaranteed guilty verdict, and the prosecution is out to cause pain to both John and Lillian.  If the woman he has viewed as a daughter is to have any chance at a fair trial, let alone freedom, then John Murray absolutely must act as judge.  

Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive by Stephanie Land.  Raising a daughter as a single parent was hard for Stephanie Land, years of long hours working as a maid simply to keep a roof over their heads.  Working bit by bit to ascend from poverty, working domestic labor jobs, dealing with assisted housing, and untangling the web of government assistance.  And through all the hardship and dark times, Stephanie wrote her story and the stories of those just like her, the overworked and the underpaid.   Written with simple honesty, Maid takes a long look at what it means to be in the service underbelly of upper-middle class America.
