Book: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel by Rachel Joyce

Recommended by: Karen, Assistant Director

Harold Fry is an ordinary man recently retired and living in a small English village with his wife. Normally his days drag on, one after another. However one day, Harold received a letter from a friend who is dying and in hospice. He replies and walks to the corner to post his letter. On his way, he has a chance encounter that convinces him to deliver his response in person. So begins Harold's pilgrimage, an ordinary man who goes on a remarkable journey, not just to visit his friend one last time but a journey that changes his life and those around him. I found myself cheering for Harold as he walked in his yachting shoes and was inspired by his journey. Great read.

Bookcover - Desire of the Everlasting Hills
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library staff.

Book: Desire of the Everlasting Hills: The World Before and After Jesus by Thomas Cahill

Recommended by: Joseph, Adult Nonfiction Librarian

This book is an interesting look at the cultures, people, languages, and events that shaped the world around Jesus. From the influence of Alexander the Great and the Greeks on the Jews to the personalities and writing styles of Jesus's early followers, many intriguing influences are discussed. While not comprehensive, Cahill's mostly-secular work is both engaging and accessible.

Bookcover - The Girl You Left Behind
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.

Book: The Girl You Left Behind

by JoJo Moyes

Recommended by: Lois
Captivating and bittersweet, THE GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND is an incredible story! The parallel narrative that's so popular in historical fiction weaves two stories perfectly. In 1916 Sophie, whose husband is in the battlefield, lives with her family in a German-occupied French village. In 2006 Liv, a young widow who can't stop mourning her husband's sudden death, lives alone in London. Sophie and Liv are linked by one haunting painting, The Girl You Left Behind, Sophie's portrait by her beloved artist husband - and a century later a honeymoon gift to Liv. Get out the tissues and give this book a try. Betrayal, evil, greed and hope wrapped up in one gorgeous, heartbreaking story. I loved it!
