BALDWIN — Stop by the Pathfinder Library and check out these new titles added to our collection.
Book of the Week: “The Balcony” by Jane Delury (fiction). What if our homes could tell the stories of others who lived there before us? Set in a small village near Paris, “The Balcony” follows the inhabitants of a single estate — including a manor and a servants’ cottage — over the course of several generations, from the Belle Époque to the present day, introducing us to a fascinating cast of characters.
A young American au pair develops a crush on her brilliant employer. An ex-courtesan shocks the servants, a Jewish couple in hiding from the Gestapo attract the curiosity of the neighbors, and a housewife begins an affair while renovating her downstairs. Rich and poor, young and old, powerful and persecuted, all of these people are seeking something — meaning, love, a new beginning or merely survival. (Amazon.com)
