  1. Customer Book Review “No Great Mischief” by Alistair MacLeod:
    The story of the MacDonald family was set into motion in 17797 when the patriarch, Calum, sailed in exile from Scotland and settled his large family in Cape Breton. 200 years later, the history still motivates and actions and relationships of the latest generation of MacDonalds in Cape Breton, particularly Alexander and his older brother Calum, who is a dying alcoholic.

  2. Customer Book Review “Fallen Women” by Sandra Dallas
    This novel is written about the 1800s. Sisters are estranged. One sister is murdered in a brothel. The other sister wants to find the killer and to understand why her sister became a prostitute. [A] life of a prostitute is ravaged by drugs, liquor and disease: wretched enough to take their own lives. Wages were too low for working women to support the family. They may have been disgraced or starving. Contrast between society, fine homes and the bad side of town. The older sister did good in her community, she took in deserted and beaten women and their children. A new science started to find the causes of people’s actions. A story about family relationships.
