by Judy Belyeu

The Giddings Public Library offers a wide variety of books for your reading pleasure.

Cronkite by Douglas Brinkley is a definitive, revealing biography of a true American legend. For decades, Walter Cronkite was known as “the most trusted man in America.” Millions across the nation welcomed him into their homes, first as a print reporter for the United Press on the front lines of World War II, and later, in the emerging medium of television, as a host of numerous documentary programs and as anchor of the CBS News from 1962 until 1981.

Thunder and Rain by Charles Martin is an exhilarating new novel about a famous Texas Ranger torn by his past and his future.

Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln by Stephen L. Carter is a vividly imagined work of historical fiction that captures the emotional tenor of post-Civil War America, a brilliantly realized contentious question of the nature of presidential authority, and a galvanizing story of political suspense.

Honor by Janet Dailey is a book about three unforgettable brothers: R.J., Linc and Deke Brannon. Linc Brannon has it all and he’s there every time Kenzie needs him. They have a mission: to serve their country stateside. Kenzie is an expert trainer of combat dogs. Two of her friends are suddenly struck down and Linc goes into action to uncover the web of tragic events. Linc is honor bound to protect Kenzie. With all his heart, he vows to risk his life for hers.

Several other books to read are: The Great Escape by Susan Elizabeth Phillips; The After Wife by Gigi Levangie Grazer; Tiger’s Claw by Dale Brown; The Big Cat Nap by Rita Mae Brown and The Gift of Fire by Walter Mosley.
