Two New Great Books!!
New this week at the library. Meredith Hall’s two New York Times Bestsellers, one (Without a Map) and the other a novel (Beneficence). Meredith Hall is a Maine author who divides her time between Maine and California. Her book (Without a Map), in addition to being on the New York Times bestseller list was chosen as “Best Book of the Year” by Kirkus and Booksense as well as Elle’s “Readers’ Pick of the Year.
Beneficense is a family saga that takes place in rural Maine. It is a story of compassion, love, family, mental illness and grief. ” If the word luminous didn’t already exist, you’d have to invent it to describe Meredith Hall’s radiant new novel” (Richard Russo)
