The Victory Garden

Thursday, February 27, 2020

6:00 pm

Rhys Bowen details the story of headstrong twenty-one-year-old Emily Bryce who is determined to contribute to the war effort as the Great War continues to take its toll. She is convinced by a cheeky and handsome Australian pilot that she can do more, and it is not long before she falls in love with him and accepts his proposal of marriage. When he is sent back to the front, Emily volunteers as a 'land girl,' tending to the neglected grounds of a large Devonshire estate. Tragedy strikes when Emily's lover not only dies a hero but leaves her terrified--and with child. The long-forgotten journals of a medicine woman will teach Emily the power of healing with herbs, and may also open a path to her destiny.

A Man Called Ove

Bookcover

Thursday, April 27, 2017, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman: Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon; the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him 'the bitter neighbour from hell'. But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations. - Publisher
