November's Get In the Queue

Here are a few highlights from this month's In the Queue.

Where the Moon Isn't: A Novel by Nathan Filer

Matthew Homes and his older brother snuck out in the middle of the night. Only Matthew came home safely. Ten years later, Matthew tells us, he has found a way to bring his brother back... This debut novel begins as the story of a lost boy and turns into a story of a brave man, who yearns to learn what happened the night his brother disappeared. This brilliant debut novel shows us that strength is rooted in resilience and love. 


 Stella Bain by Anita Shreve

 An epic novel, set against the backdrop of World War I. It is a tragic, yet hopeful story of love, loss and rebuilding. This beautiful story has a hint of Downton Abbey and the writing is exquisite. 


 
Five Days In November by Clint Hill

This story took Clint Hill fifty years to tell. It is a work of personal and historical scope. Besides the unbearable grief of a nation and the monumental consequences of the event, the death of JFK was a personal blow to a man sworn to protect the first family. As the shots rang out in Dallas he knew nothing would ever be the same.
