Cold weather or not, this is a good time of year to slow down and cozy up with a good book. For those who enjoy a mystery, we offer Turning the Tide, the third title in Edith Maxwell's popular Quaker Midwife series.

In the Light,

With exquisitely detailed illustrations and tragicomic flair, Carson Ellis invites readers to imagine the dramatic possibilities to be found in even the humblest backyard. Su!
