New books arriving at Pathfinder
BALDWIN -- QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The person who never reads lives only one" - George R.R. Martin.
Check out these new titles added to our collection this week at the Pathfinder Library:
BOOK OF THE WEEK: "The Pull of the Stars," by Emma Donoghue (fiction).
In an Ireland doubly ravaged by war and disease, Nurse Julia Power works at an understaffed hospital in the city center, where expectant mothers who have come down with the terrible new flu are quarantined together.
Into Julia's regimented world step two outsiders -- Doctor Kathleen Lynn, a rumored rebel on the run from the police, and a young volunteer helper, Bridie Sweeney.
In the darkness and intensity of this tiny ward, over three days, these women change each other's lives in unexpected ways.
They lose patients to this baffling pandemic, but they also shepherd new life into a fearful world.
With tireless tenderness and humanity, carers and mothers alike somehow do their impossible work.
