Rainbowed

The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God – if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.

Ornamented.It was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!

A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens, 1843.

Share the Love: Xs & Os for Romantic Pop Fiction

SHARETHELOVE2

Valentine’s Day is almost here, but not all minds wander to chocolate and roses. If you are the person who would rather celebrate this day with a good, heart-pumping read, visit the Pop Fiction shelves on the library’s first floor to take home one of these quasi-romantic novels:

Once Upon a Winter’s Heart
Melody Carlson

PS3553.A73257 .O53 2014

Once-upon-a-winter's-heart2Emma has given up on dating and declared romance dead. She is forced to give it a second thought when her grandfather dies leaving her grandmother heartbroken. In her grandfather’s honor, Emma agrees to keep the tradition of decorating the bookstore with hearts for Valentine’s Day and is helped by Lane who soon becomes more than just a friend. Unfortunately, he is also more than just a friend to Emma’s sister.

The Heart has its Reasons
Maria Duenas

PQ6704.U35 M5713

Heart3After losing her husband, Blanca, a college professor in Madrid travels to California in search of a new life. Accepting a research grant to follow a deceased, exiled Spanish writer, she works to sort out a long gone life of passion and intrigue while dealing with a colleague who has not disclosed secrets he knows about the writer.

 

The Woman from Paris
Santa Montefiore

PR6113.O544 W66 2013

woman-from-paris2Phaedra appears at the funeral of Lord Frampton, recently deceased due to a skiing accident. She is a surprise to the entire family and also the heiress to Lord Frampton’s sapphires. Three brothers contest the will, while the oldest wins Phaedra’s heart. The love affair is made difficult by another family member who is determined to uncover Phaedra as a fraud.

 

Silver Girl
Elin Hilderbrand

PS3558.I384355 S55 201

silver-girl2First a story of loss, then love, Meredith retreats to Nantucket with a friend to heal after her husband cheats his rich investors out of millions of dollars and loses the house. Life becomes interesting when Meredith’s high school sweetheart shows up and she is forced to sort through thoughts of what life might have been.

 

Under the Wide and Starry Sky
Nancy Horan

PS3608.O8725 U53 2014

wide-and-starry2The second novel by the author of Loving Frank, this time Horan focuses on the love between Robert Louis Stevenson and his feisty American bride, Fanny. I haven’t read this one, but Loving Frank was exceptional so I’ve put this on my list.

 

 

These books also go well with chocolate and roses. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Our Pop Fiction selection varies month to month, so check frequently for new titles.
