The Giddings Public Library is very busy with our Summer Reading program. We welcome our children and adults to come to the library and enjoy the world of reading. Listed below are some of our newest selections.
The Sea Witch by Stephen Coonts weaves three unforgettable tales of men and women at war with the sort of dramatic military action and undercover technology for which he is known.
Aunt Dimity and the Village Witch by Nancy Atherton takes place in the sleepy village of Finch. There are a few things more exciting than the prospect of a new neighbor. Lori Shepherd meets Finch’s newest arrival, Mrs. Thistle. Upon making her newest acquaintance, Lori must help Amelia conceal her identity. But it turns out that Amelia is looking for more than just a place to lie low in Finch. Afragment of a family diary hints that one of Amelia’s ancestors might have been Mistress Meg, the Mad Witch of Finch.
The Proposal by Mary Balogh is an engaging and seductive new novel of drama and romance. A woman comfortable in her solitude allows temptation to free her heart when a daring war hero shows her how truly extraordinary she is.
Only One Life by Sara Blaedel is about Inspector Louise Rick. She is called out to Holbrack Fjord when a young immigrant girl is found in the watery depths, a piece of concrete tied around her waist and two mysterious circular patches on the back of her neck.
The Emerald Storm by William Dietrich is an adventurous story that takes place in a mountain prison in Napolenic France in the year of 1803 and the races to the sultry tropics of the Caribbean with a mysterious and magical Spanish treasure and the first successful slave revolt in history hanging in the balance.
