Book: The Hearts of Horses by Molly Glass

Recommended by: Karen

In the winter of 1917, nineteen-year-old Martha Lessen saddles her horses and heads for a remote county in eastern Oregon, looking for work "gentling" wild horses. Molly Gloss's writing is plain and simple yet captivating, kind of like Martha herself.  I liked getting to know Martha and meeting the friends she came to know through her work.  Great read and nice discovery while perusing the library stacks one day. I have to admit, the picture of the horse and rider on the cover intrigued me.

Book: Archetype : a novel by M. D. Waters

Recommended by: Melanie

Set in a futuristic dystopian world, a woman awakens with no memory of her life before--only a voice in her head telling her things are not as they seem. Is her husband her worst enemy or best friend? She has terrible nightmares about a different world where she is trapped. The dreams intensify and become daytime flashes of memory. A suspenseful story that kept me guessing right up to the end! It finishes with a cliffhanger, but don't worry there is a sequel, Prototype.

Book: The Boxcar Children Beginning: The Aldens of Fair Meadow Farm by Patricia MacLachlan

Recommended by: Karen, Assistant Director

Recently I was able to visit some old friends, the Boxcar children that were created by Gertrude Chandler Warner. Patricia MacLachlan gave the children a new voice by giving them a beginning. She writes: "Before they were the Boxcar Children, Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden lived with their parents at Fair Meadow Farm. Although times are hard, the Aldens are happy - the best family of all, Mama likes to say." What a treat! Read it aloud with your children today.
