Silence Under A Stone

Author:

Norma MacMASTER

Synopsis:

From her bed in a nursing home, Harriet Campbell reflects on the time, long ago, when the second greatest joy in her life was her newborn son, James; only her God had a greater claim to her love. It is the 1920s, in the shadowlands south of the Irish border. Harriet and her husband, Thomas, a cold and sober man who is almost twice her age, are respected members of their strict Presbyterian congregation; indeed, Thomas has just been made an elder. But this is a changing Ireland, where the sway of the Roman Catholic Church is at its height, and the community is becoming increasingly isolated. Little does Harriet realize that, as James grows up, she will be forced to choose between faith and family.

Author:

Laura Madeleine

High in the mountains in the south of France, eighteen-year-old Ceci Corvin is trying hard to carry on as normal. But in 1943, there is no such thing as normal - especially not for a young woman in love with the wrong person. Scandal, it would seem, can be more dangerous than war... Fifty years later, Annie is looking for her long-lost grandmother. Armed with nothing more than a sheaf of papers, she travels from England to Paris in pursuit of the truth. But as she traces her grandmother's story, Annie uncovers something she wasn't expecting: something that changes everything she knew about her family - and everything she thought she knew about herself...

Not until she was sixteen did Stella Arnold learn the full truth about her father - how handsome, charming James turned out to be a cold-blooded extortionist, racketeer...and killer.

A Treacherous Paradise

Author:

Henning Mankell

Synopsis:

Cold and poverty define Hanna Renström's childhood in remote northern Sweden, and in 1905, at nineteen, she boards a ship for Australia in hope of a better life. But nothing prepares her for the life she will lead. After two brief marriages, she finds herself the owner of a bordello in Portuguese East Africa. As Hanna's story unfurls over the next several years, we watch her in this "treacherous paradise," as she wrestles with a wrenching loneliness and with the racism she's meant to unthinkingly adopt. And as her life becomes increasingly intertwined with the prostitutes, she moves inexorably toward the moment when she will make a decision that defies every expectation society has of her, and, more important, those she has of herself.
