Alice Wright is the English woman who doesn't quite fit into her mother's idea of what a young woman should do and say.  When a handsome young man, Bennett Van Cleve from America, romances her, Alice quickly marries and moves to what she hopes will be a big town.  Unfortunately, small town Kentucky proves quite different from Alice's dreams. Living with her husband and overbearing father-in-law is stifling. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt's traveling library program, Alice signs on. The leader, and soon Alice's greatest ally and friend, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. They are joined by three other women who become known as the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky. Set in Depression-era America, this is a wonderful story of five special women, their courage, their loves, their lives.

$27.00
ISBN: 9780812996548
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Random House - October 15th, 2019

Olive Kitteridge is back.  She's older, wiser, still curt, direct and way too honest, but this Olive is more sensitive and  empathetic.  Like the original, Olive, Again is written in chapters: in some Olive is the main character and in others she's part of a supporting cast.  The entire novel takes place in Maine, mostly in the town of Crosby.  As  Olive ages, we are reintroduced to friends and relatives and also meet new characters.  Readers who enjoyed Olive Kitteridge will want to read Olive, Again.  Every chapter is full of humor and poignancy, and in the center of it all is Olive, a hugely entertaining, sympathetic, unforgettable woman.
