They Called Me Margaret by Florence Osmund 4.4 Stars (30 Reviews)    Price verified 10 minutes ago

2018 B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree Margaret Manning has spent the better part of her life conforming to the expectations of other people -- first her father, then her husband. To break from this tradition, she becomes a writer of cozy mysteries and is in the process of living out her dream of opening her own bookstore -- The Indie Book Nook -- featuring self-published authors. But when she perceives her husband is behaving similarly to some of the unscrupulous characters in her books, she fears that she will lose him or -- maybe even worse -- that she is losing her mind. While abandonment is nothing new to Margaret -- she hasn't seen or heard from her mother since she was six years old -- the fear of losing her husband is devastating. As she struggles to find the strength to mend her shattered marriage, she must also cope with her obscure health issues, her daughter's precarious behavior, a disingenuous neighbor, and an unpredictable mother-in-law. Who in her life is a friend and who is more of a foe is not always apparent, and it's up to Margaret to figure it all out.

A House on the Rhine by Frances Faviell (Dean Street Press) Price verified 9 hours ago

The rubbish in the once-lovely garden, the broken toys, the bicycles against the toppling fence, the neglected, trampled flower-beds - all were highlighted by the merciless midday sun. The house itself, with paint peeling, tiles missing from the roof, its pretentious pillars pitted with gunfire, looked forlorn and neglected. But nothing could detract from the beauty of the acacia trees whose proud flowering dominated the scene and apologized for everything. Having made her publishing debut with The Dancing Bear, a superb memoir of life in Berlin immediately after World War II, Frances Faviell applied first-hand knowledge to fiction, telling the riveting, harrowing tale of one large, troubled family in Germany nearly a decade after the war's end. In a town near Cologne, rebuilding is proceeding at a frantic pace, factory work is plentiful and well-paid, and the dark days of near-starvation have ended. But Joseph, a former Allied prisoner of war, and his enormous brood -- his wife having received a medal under the Nazis for bearing more than 10 children -- face new problems ranging from the mother's infidelity, the oldest child's involvement with a brutal youth gang leader, and a beloved adopted daughter's plans to marry an American soldier. Vividly portraying the love and conflict of a large family and the dramatic, sometimes tragic social change of Germany's postwar recovery, A House on the Rhine is a powerful, heartbreaking tale from the author of the London Blitz memoir A Chelsea Concerto. This new edition includes an afterword by Frances Faviell's son, John Parker, and other supplementary material. . 'Heartrending but irresistible.' Rosaleen Whateley, Liverpool Daily Post 'Extremely fast paced and expertly told... her characters are alive and disturbingly real.' San Francisco Chronicle 'She writes with a sharpness of outline which would not shame Simenon.' J.W. Lambert, Sunday Times

Thalia by Frances Faviell (Dean Street Press) Price verified 9 hours ago

'You are a virgin?' 'Yes.' 'How dull! What's the use of being a woman if you're a virgin?' 'One has to begin sometime,' I agreed. Recovering from an illness, Rachel, an 18-year-old art student at the Slade in London, is advised to spend a year in a warm climate. She agrees to go to France to act as companion to Cynthia, a delicate, temperamental woman whose husband is in India, and her two children, troubled 15-year-old Thalia and spoiled young Claude. Thalia quickly becomes devoted to Rachel, but their friendship is strained by Rachel's romance with the son of a well-to-do Breton family. Though it's the awkward, emotional Thalia who lends the novel its title, it's Rachel on whom the novel centers, poignantly telling the tale of her sad first love, her dawning awareness of the vagaries and dishonesties of social life, and the tragedy she is powerless to prevent. Set in Brittany in the mid-1930s, with an excursion to the caf├ęs and artists' studios of Montparnasse, Thalia is a dramatic and poignant tale by the author of A Chelsea Concerto. It includes an afterword by the author's son, John Parker, and other supplementary material. 'Mrs. Faviell... writes with grace and sensibility; this young, new world of first experiences is brought back and set down with a fresh touch, and, while shadowed by tragedy, it is eminently pleasant to follow.' Kirkus Reviews 'She writes with a sharpness of outline which would not shame Simenon.' J.W. Lambert, Sunday Times

Summer Street Secrets (The Hills of Burlington Book 3) by Jacie Middlemann 4.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

Summer Street Secrets is the third book in The Hills of Burlington series. It is a story of family, both the one we were born with and those we meet along the way. The ink on Carrie's divorce papers was barely dry when she got the frantic call from her ex-husband's sister. Carrie's young niece had trusted when she shouldn't have and as a result was now the victim of internet bullying and harassment. Without a second thought Carrie agrees to her former sister-in-law's request to allow Addie to spend time with her in Burlington. Regardless of the divorce she is still family. Within hours of Addie's arrival Carrie realizes the damage done to her young niece is far worse than she could have anticipated and that a few shopping excursions weren't going to do the trick. Before long Carrie's mother is involved in the efforts to help Addie. Her cousins aren't far behind. But it's Grace, Carrie's neighbor and friend that she met shortly after her return to the city of her most precious childhood memories who comes up with the idea to give Addie and others like her what they need. And in the process gives Addie a way to do more than be a victim. Carrie had come to Burlington months ago in search of her mother who'd been determined to return to the city she had always called home and had done just that without letting any of her family know. While she had never planned to stay once making sure her mother is happily settled in she finds that being surrounded by family who know and understand her best is no better place for starting over. And now in the midst of Addie's unexpected arrival Carrie's cautious friendship with Court turns a corner when he reveals to her his own closely held secret. One he is willing to allow to be exposed as part of the overall effort to help her niece. And then there is her cousin Mary's newly purchased house on Summer Street. It's a mess both inside and out. But it's another connection to family. Family who came to Burlington to begin anew ...

THE GOLDEN LION SONGBOOK by J.B. Aspinall Price verified 21 hours ago

A fancy dress evening in a Yorkshire pub discloses an array of plights and relationships. Karen has returned after five years to confront the demons of her adolescence. Vicar Bernard has discovered Satan. Celia has trappped Eric in her histrionic maze. Linda is besotted with a brutal footballer. Seven year old Jason plays Terrorquest and misses his runaway Mum. Barbara has received momentous news... Central to events is Jim, father of Karen, lover of Celia and husband of Barbara. He is suffering from traumatic amnesia when he comes to awareness in the pub. His perceptions and returning memories, warped by drink and guilt, pervade the masquerade until reality surrenders to delusion. There is an ambience of surrealism ( or 'magic realism') but basically this is a naturalistic study of the shambles people suffer and inflict. I hope that any pessimism is spiced with humour and empathy!
