Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted -- and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden. In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries.

And when the time is right, she will take up the sword, and fight. For until she grows into the woman she was born to be, the world outside will never be whole again." -- From publisher's description.

Heartland : a memoir of working hard and being broke in the richest country on earth [large print]/ Sarah Smarsh.

  • 20 January 2019
cover image"An eye-opening memoir of working-class poverty in the American Midwest. During Sarah Smarsh's turbulent childhood in Kansas in the 1980s and 1990s, the forces of cyclical poverty and the country's changing economic policies solidified her family's place among the working poor. By telling the story of her life and the lives of the people she loves, Smarsh challenges us to look more closely at the class divide in our country and examine the myths about people thought to be less because they earn less. Her personal history affirms the corrosive impact intergenerational poverty can have on individuals, families, and communities, and she explores this idea as lived experience, metaphor, and level of consciousness. Smarsh was born a fifth generation Kansas wheat farmer on her paternal side and the product of generations of teen mothers on her maternal side. Through her experiences growing up as the daughter of a dissatisfied young mother and raised predominantly by her grandmother on a farm thirty miles west of Wichita, we are given a unique and essential look into the lives of poor and working class Americans living in the heartland. Combining memoir with powerful analysis and cultural commentary, Heartland is an uncompromising look at class, identity, and the particular perils of having less in a country known for its excess.

Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane [large print] / by JoAnn Ross.

  • 20 January 2019
cover image"Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Jolene Wells is forever indebted to the mother who encouraged her to fly--all the way to sunny LA and a world away from Honeymoon Harbor. Although Jolene vowed never to look back, returning home isn't even a question when her mom faces a cancer scare. Which means running into Aiden Mannion all over town, the first boy she ever loved--and lost--and whom she can barely look in the eye. Aiden's black-sheep reputation may have diminished when he joined the marines, but everything he's endured since has left him haunted. Back in Honeymoon Harbor to heal, he's talked into the interim role of police chief, and the irony isn't lost on the locals, least of all Aiden. But seeing Jolene after all these years is the unexpected breath of fresh air he's been missing. He's never forgotten her through all his tours, but he's not sure anymore that he's the man she deserves. Despite the secret they left between them all those years ago, snow is starting to fall on their picturesque little town, making anything seem possible...maybe even a second chance at first love"-- Provided by publisher.

War on peace [large print] : the end of diplomacy and the decline of American influence / by Ronan Farrow.

  • 20 January 2019
cover imageDrawing on newly unearthed documents, and richly informed by rare interviews with warlords, whistle-blowers, and policymakers--including every living former secretary of state from Henry Kissinger to Hillary Clinton to Rex Tillerson. War on Peace makes a powerful case for an endangered profession. Diplomacy, Farrow argues, has declined after decades of political cowardice, shortsightedness, and outright malice--but it may just offer America a way out of a world at war.
