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!

Bookcover: The Housekeeper and the ProfessorHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Housekeeper and the Professor

by Yoko Ogawa


Recommended by: Karen
He is a brilliant math professor with a peculiar problem--ever since a traumatic head injury, he has lived with only eighty minutes of short-term memory. She is an astute young housekeeper, with a ten-year-old son, who is hired to care for him. And every morning, as the Professor and the Housekeeper are introduced to each other anew, a strange and beautiful relationship blossoms between them. So begins the adventure as these three share a family life like no other. Intriguing and innocent are the words I would use to describe this story. A must read.

Bookcover: Deep Water Passage
<br />Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: Deep Water Passage: a Spiritual Journey at Mid-Life
 
by Ann Linnea


Recommended by: Melanie
The author's grueling, 65-day journey by kayak around Lake Superior was a spiritual quest, a search for meaning in her life. This account is both an engrossing adventure and a story of awakening and inspiration. Each time I re-read this beautiful book I come away with new insights and understanding. Ann Linnea began her writing career at Utah State University authoring hiking and skiing guides as a U.S. Forest Service naturalist.
