Autumnal Reads
The autumnal equinox occurs on September 22nd.  This means that we are wrapping up our summer activities and will have more time for reading and other indoor pleasures.  We would like to recommend these reads for your autumn book shelf.

Mission to Paris by Alan Furst:  Autumn 1939. In Paris American motion picture producer Frederic Stahl is drawn into a clandestine world of foreign correspondents, exiled Spanish republicans, and spies of every sort. For as a celebrity from neutral America -- who can travel across the continent freely -- Stahl could be very useful indeed. - from the catalog.

Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James: It is 1803, six years since Elizabeth and Darcy embarked on their life together at Pemberley, Darcy's magnificent estate. Their peaceful, orderly world seems almost unassailable. Elizabeth has found her footing as the chatelaine of the great house. They have two fine sons, Fitzwilliam and Charles. Elizabeth's sister Jane and her husband, Bingley, live nearby; her father visits often; there is optimistic talk about the prospects of marriage for Darcy's sister Georgiana. And preparations are under way for their much-anticipated annual autumn ball. But now, Pemberley is thrown into chaos after Elizabeth Bennett's disgraced sister Lydia arrives and announces that her husband Wickham has been murdered. - from the catalog.

Knock Out by Catherine Coulter:  FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock are back in this electrifying thriller as they attempt to keep Autumn Backman, a seven-year-old telepath, from falling into the hands of her uncle and his growing army of exploited children. - from the catalog.
