Her Pretend Amish Boyfriend by Rachel J. Good.

"Hiding a painful secret, valley newcomer Noah Riehl is looking for a fresh start with few complications. He hopes his job at the Farmer's Market will give him the quiet life he craves. But light-hearted Caroline Hartzler has other ideas. She practically falls in love with him at first sight. And when she asks Noah for a not-so-simple favor -- and won't take no for answer -- he finds himself reluctantly agreeing . . . Caroline refuses to listen to the gossip that has followed Noah into the valley, or even to her own daed's warnings. She's taken with Noah and his gentle, generous spirit. In fact, he's the perfect person to help her discourage an unwanted suitor -- by pretending they're courting. Yet the more time they spend together, the more Caroline must remind herself that their relationship is just a temporary ruse. But she's not the only one struggling . . . Secretly, Noah's feelings for Caroline deepen more than he thought possible, helping him renew his faltering faith. But when rumors about his past threaten to ruin them both, they must pray that the truth leads them to the blessed union they long for . . ."-- Provided by publisher.

 

Betrayal by Phillip Margolin.

Montana Snowfall by Caroline Fyffe.

"When Roady Guthrie, longtime foreman for the McCutcheon ranch, takes time off to go bear hunting, he never expects to find a young woman asleep in his hunting cabin in the midst of a snowstorm. Worried what their unchaperoned situation will do to her reputation, Roady is uneasy when the snowfall keeps them stranded -- just long enough for him to lose his heart. Sally Stanford has a secret -- one that sent her running from St. Louis to Y Knot and into the arms of her sister. A secret that would shatter Roady's high opinion of her, if he knew. When Sally realizes her plan is doomed to fail, she turns to the only man she trusts."-- Provided by publisher.

 

Adult Non-Fiction

Just for Today by Narcotics Anonymous.

Just as with alcoholism, there is no 'cure' for narcotic addiction, but recovery is possible through a twelve step programme.

 

My Name is Barbra by Barbra Streisand.

Barbra Streisand is by any account a living legend, a woman who in a career spanning six decades has excelled in every area of entertainment. She is among the handful of EGOT winners (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) and has one of the greatest and most recognizable voices in the history of popular music. She has been nominated for a Grammy 46 times, and with Yentl she became the first woman to write, produce, direct, and star in a major motion picture. In My Name Is Barbra, she tells her own story about her life and extraordinary career, from growing up in Brooklyn to her first star-making appearances in New York nightclubs to her breakout performance in Funny Girl on stage and winning the Oscar for that performance on film. Then came a long string of successes in every medium in the years that followed. The book is, like Barbra herself, frank, funny, opinionated, and charming. She recounts her early struggles to become an actress, eventually turning to singing to earn a living; the recording of some of her acclaimed albums; the years of effort involved in making Yentl; her direction of The Prince of Tides; her friendships with figures ranging from Marlon Brando to Madeleine Albright; her political advocacy; and the fulfillment she's found in her marriage to James Brolin.

 

Easy/Juvenile/Young Adult/Graphic Novel

Sister Spring by James Christopher Carroll.  E

After Sister Spring awakes "with the first daffodil on the very last breath of frost," she colors the sunrise with a kiss, provides thunder for the hills, and invites the reader to gambol in the meadow and "dream the seeds of the morrow."

 

Sophie’s World Vol. 2 by Vincent Zabus.  YA GN

Sophie's come a long way since the day she received that cryptic letter with its intriguing question: "Who are you?" The mysterious correspondence sweeps our curious young heroine off on a tour of Western philosophy from its ancient foundations through the Renaissance. But it also prompts more personal reflection: What is my place in the world, my purpose in life? And just who is that girl, a stranger and yet so familiar, I glimpse in the mirror? Sophie's quest for answers will see her explore major schools of modern thought from Descartes and Locke to Freud and Marx. She and her quizzical philosophy teacher Alberto, now unmasked, struggles with the possibility that they are characters in a book. As ever, our intrepid heroine remains forthright and open-hearted.
