Review
Another Provencal mystery featuring Antoine Verlaque, a judge, and his girlfriend, Marine Bonnet, a law professor. Set in Aix-en-Provence, features evocative descriptions of the town and countryside - and also lots of gourmet meals! Good read with interesting characters, great way to escape to the South of France without leaving CT.

"Certain Poor Shepherds
Author
Elizabeth Marshall Thomas
ISBN
978-0-7636-7062-7
Review
A new twist on the Nativity story in the eyes of a sheep dog, Lila, and her collaborator goat, Ima, as they watch over the flock for a human shepherd.

What catches their eyes is the star, which they follow, and find the baby Jesus in the stable.

But there is danger for these animals as they are thrust into harm's way when the three kings arrive with their birds and animals of prey.

Such qualities are displayed by the animals that you accept their "human nature". It will be a favorite for the years to come!

A nostalgic view of the weeks leading up to Christmas in Wally Lamb's fictional town of Three Rivers, Connecticut.

The life of a parochial 5th grade boy during the time of habit-clad nuns and older teasing sisters is the story of Felix Funicello.

Such good memories are promisedfor the reader of that time period!
