In To Be Continued . . . Volume Two - the second in a series of books set in specific Canadian cities - Gordon j.h.

16. The American Brother (Large Print 16pt) - Manfred Jurgensen

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

What happens when the war against global terrorism also destroys individual integrity and personal freedom? This is the bold, disturbing theme of Manfred Jurgensen's The American Brother. Harry Greene, although a serious-minded intellectual, finds himself at times in absurdly humorous situations. Set in Australia and America, the novel laments the manipulation of identity when economic globalization and international terror are intertwined. As we are carried through a series of breathtaking incidents, we confront the grim reality of how a tyranny of political counter-intelligence has set out to destroy the truth of individual, social and cultural self-determination....A gripping and beautifully written novel which will change the way you think.

17. Burning in (Large Print 16pt) - Mireille Juchau

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This is a novel about mothers and daughters, about the way the hidden past plays itself out in the present, and the conflicts between professional commitment and the responsibilities of family life. The story is told by a young woman, Martine, who translates the emotional distance she senses in her mother, Lotte, a holocaust survivor, into a passion for photography. Martine leaves Sydney to live in New York, in order to further her career, and has a child of her own. One day, her daughter Ruby goes missing in Central Park, while in the care of a nanny. The disappearance of her daughter throws Martine into a paralysis of feeling, brought about by guilt and grief, but it also, eventually, brings her closer to understanding her own relationship with her mother.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Leap forward a century from the days of Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael.... She stretched out her hand, struggling to grasp him, reaching for the crude wooden cross he wore on a thin leather strap around his neck. But something seemed to hold her back; some black force scrabbled to keep her soul from deliverance. The priest had not heard her cry. He did not see her fighting to reach him. She must tell him. She must! After all her years devoted to God, Satan should not win her soul over such a misunderstanding, a judgement she'd made with imperfect knowledge and mortal blindness. An innocent person would be hurt, even die, if she did not. She could not have that fouling her conscience. She fought harder to reach her confessor, twisting, crying, moaning for help. Suddenly a hand materialized from the tapestry. It grasped the old prioress firmly and pulled her back to the ground. It was a woman's hand, and the touch was warm. The old prioress looked up and saw St. Mary Magdalene smiling. ''Tell me, my child,'' the saintly voice said. ''I will tell Our Lord.'' She gestured to the glowing man at whose feet she sat. ''And He will forgive all as He always has.'' The old prioress wanted to weep for joy. ''Please tell him that I accused wrongly. It was not the one we feared, but rather the other!'' she gasped. And with that, the world turned black.
