Thoroughly researched, beautifully written, and rich with historical illustrations, Nature’s Ambassador: The Life and Legacy of Thornton Burgess by Christie Palmer Lowrance is an enchanting overview of the life and writing of the children’s author and ardent conservationist. A long-time resident of Sandwich on Cape Cod, Burgess entertained generations of children with his stories and illustrations of animals and the natural world in which they lived. But he was also far ahead of his time, understanding the fragility and beauty of our planet decades before the modern environmental movement made his ideas mainstream.
It’s the night before Carol Andrews’s fortieth high school reunion at Mount Saint Francis Academy, and preparations for the big party are going well…until the dead body of a classmate is discovered in Carol’s hotel room. The title of Susan Santangelo’s latest novel says it all: Class Reunions Can Be Murder. Midwest Book Review calls the novel, “an especially well-crafted and entertaining mystery that plays fair with the reader every step of the way.” This is the fourth in Santangello’s Baby Boomer Mystery Series.
New York Times bestselling author Chip Bishop’s latest book is Quentin and Flora: A Roosevelt and a Vanderbilt in Love during the Great War, the charismatic true story of Quentin Roosevelt, President Theodore Roosevelt’s youngest son, and his secret fiancée, Flora Payne Whitney. Told in rich and absorbing detail by an expert storyteller, it is a moving tale of courage, heroism and young love, set against the backdrop of Theodore Roosevelt’s lofty expectations for his sons and his own tragic demise.
