Book Description :

Gail Anderson-Dargatz, the acclaimed and bestselling author of The Cure for Death by Lightning and A Recipe for Bees, brings readers once again into the heart of rural Canada with A Rhinestone Button. As funny as it is tender, it is a novel full of true-to-life characters, natural wonder, and sweet surprises. Despite growing up in the small farming town of Godsfinger, Alberta, Job Sunstrum was always a bit of an outsider. A thin young man with blond, curly hair, he loved baking and cooking, and certainly did not fit in with the rough-and-tumble farm boys around town. Even when Job takes over the farm after his father’s death and his brother’s departure to train as a pastor, his community remains his animals, and perhaps the church women with whom he shares his baking on Sundays. Lonely beyond belief, overwhelmed by religious guilt, and taut with fear at the thought of what life might have in store for him, Job can only turn to God and hope that someday, things will turn around. Only his synesthesia — his ability to see sounds as colours, and feel vibrations as solid forms — provides him with passing moments of solace, but it also reaffirms for him that he experiences the world in a way the other people of Godsfinger could not possibly understand. Then one year, Job’s “tightly coiled” life begins to fall apart, and even the small sureties that got him through the days are torn away from him. The colours even disappear from sounds. Faced with change on every level and not knowing how to live outside the world he was brought up in, Job allows himself to be caught up in the Pentecostal drive of a preacher named Jack Divine, in hopes that clinging to his beliefs, proving his faith, and doing what others expect of him will make everything all right. But when his new-found religious fervour only accelerates his despair and his world continues to crumble, Job is surprised to find that true faith can be found in earthly experiences, and come from the most unlikely of sources. That a world without the familiar colours and shapes of sound is not half-heard, as he feared, but freed to break out in song. Like Anderson-Dargatz’s previous novels, A Rhinestone Button is a loving and magical portrait of small-town life that makes us question what we believe is real, and true.

Three women, two weeks, one convertible: sometimes life doesn't take you in the direction you expect... Colleen Bradley is married with a teenage son, a modest business repurposing and reselling antiques, and longtime fear that she was not her husband's first choice. When she decides to take a road trip down the east coast to check out antique auctions for her business, she also has a secret ulterior motive. Her one-woman mission for peace of mind is thrown slightly off course when sixteen year old Tamara becomes her co-pilot. The daughter of Colleen's brother-in-law, Tamara is aware that people see her as a screw-up, but she knows in her heart that she's so much more. She just wishes her father could see it, too. The already bumpy trip takes another unexpected turn when they stop at the diner that served as Colleen's college hangout and run into her old friend, Bitty Nolan Camalier. Clearly distressed, Bitty gives them a story full of holes: angry with her husband, she took off on her own, only to have her car stolen. Both Colleen and Tamara sense that there's more that Bitty isn't sharing, but Colleen offers to give Bitty a ride to Florida. So one becomes two becomes three as Colleen, Tamara, and Bitty make their way together down the coast. It's a road trip fraught with tension as Tamara's poor choices come back to haunt her and Bitty's secrets reach a boiling point. With no one to turn to but each other, these three women might just discover that you can get lost in life but somehow, true friends provide a roadmap to finding what you're really looking for.

Book Description :

From the end of the Great War to the final years of the 1950s, Kansas Citians lived in a manner worthy of a place called Paris of the Plains. The title did more than nod to the perfumed ladies who shopped at Harzfeld's Parisian or the one-thousand-foot television antenna nicknamed the "Eye-full Tower." It spoke to the character of a town that worked for Boss Tom and danced for Count Basie but transcended both the Pendergast era and the Jazz Age. Author John Simonson introduces readers to a town of vaudeville shows and screened-in porches, where fleets of cream-and-black streetcars passed beneath a canopy of elms. This is a history that smells equally of lilacs and stockyards and bursts with the clamor of gunshots, radio baseball and the distant whistle of a night train.

Book Description :

Stephen Long is a high school teacher at the start of summer vacation. He's out for a jog trying to better himself--middle age has brought with it a paunch and high cholesterol--when he finds a discarded duffel bag full of money. A lot of money. 1.2 million dollars to be exact. Game-changing money. Life changing money. So much money that Stephen knows it will better his life and the lives of his wife and kids. He takes the money, ignoring the fact that the duffel bag he's found it in is bloodied and bullet pocked. What Stephen hasn't noticed out in the woods where he found the money is the bag man lying mortally wounded some distance off. But the dying man has seen Stephen, and when two out-of-town gun men arrive looking for the cash owed their boss, the last thing the bag man does before he expires is to tell them everything he knows. Including what Stephen's description. The out-of-towners--who refer to themselves as Bandit and Snowman--are stone cold killers from down in New York City, sent to retrieve their boss' money. What they quickly piece together is the crew that owed their boss the money was robbed by the dead bag man. They hook up with the crew, which is led by a young thug named Antoine. Sure, 'twan is a gangster, but he has ambition and skill. He wants to parlay the money he makes hustling into his career as a magician for children's parties. Snowman and Bandit tool around town with 'twan and his boys, hunting down leads that will show them the way to their money. Meanwhile, Stephen is already dreaming of the ways he'll spend the fortune he's come into. He'll buy a new car, hire a personal trainer, and leave his wife for Ming, the younger woman at work he's infatuated with. He's bubbling over with excitement and tempted to tell someone, but who's he going to tell? His neighbor, Allen? No. Allen is distraught over the disappearance of his drug-addled youngest daughter, Trina, who appears to have run away again. His other neighbor, Kyle? No. Kyle is beset by PTSD from a war in the desert and often stands around outside by himself outside at night on the lawns. Stephen won't be deterred. Brimming with optimism, and feeling that, for the first time in his life, things are going his way, he calls Ming and asks her if she'd like to meet him for a cup of coffee downtown. Surprisingly, she agrees. Things definitely are going his way. Until they aren't. Stephen meets Ming at the coffee house and does his best to woo her. Unbeknownst to our high school teachers, one of 'twan's boys spots Stephen, recognizing him from a detail the bag man let on to Snowman and Bandit. Whne he follows Stephen to his house, he reports the information. Now the out of town killers know where Stephen lives. They know where their money is. And things are about to get crazy.

Book Description :

An exquisitely lush and lyrical story about marriage and motherhood, attachment and letting go, set in early twentieth century Dublin. Hailed by critics for "connecting what's felt on the skin with what stirs the soul" (Elle) and for prose that The New York Times calls "shimmering," Regina McBride writes with exceptional passion and courage. Now, she has crafted her most heartbreakingly beautiful novel yet. "...To my husband's mother, I was an unassuming girl, a kind of empty vessel like the Virgin Mary who would carry holiness in her womb." So begins The Marriage Bed, the story of Deirdre O'Breen, who comes from the Great Blasket Island, a windswept place off the Irish coast. It is there that something stunning happens to Deirdre's parents, shamefully driving her to the mainland. The crossing takes her to the civilized world -- and toward Manus, the son of a wealthy and devout family. An architect, he is stirred not by God but by imagination: Dublin is struggling to find its way into the twentieth century, and Manus wants to fashion its landscape. Like the city itself, the couple's marriage is fraught with hope and complicated by legacy. At the heart of this striking novel is Deirdre's family secret. Resurfacing when her daughters reach adolescence, she must confront the questions, "How much of our parents do we carry? Do their sins and frailties shape who we become to our own children?" How Deirdre veers from her husband to embrace these answers makes for a sensuous, page-turning read. The Marriage Bed is a profound work: an inquiry into the extremes of erotic love and a testament to the power of longing and the hold of unresolved grief.
