In an enthralling new feat of historical suspense, Ariel Lawhon unravels the extraordinary twists and turns in Anna Anderson’s 50-year battle to be recognized as Anastasia Romanov. Is she the Russian Grand Duchess, a beloved daughter and revered icon, or is she an imposter, the thief of another woman’s legacy? Countless others have rendered their verdict. Now it is your turn.

The historical fiction, All the Forgivenesses by Elizabeth Hardinger displays themes of family and loss in Appalachia. You can pick up the book or book on CD at the North Adams Library. If you prefer to use your e-reader, you can download the e-book or audiobook from Hoopla. The meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m., on Thurs., Aug. 27 at the North Adams Library. See you there!

Set in Appalachia and the Midwest at the turn of the twentieth century, this exquisite debut novel paints an intimately rendered portrait of one resilient farm family’s challenges and hard-won triumphs–helmed by an unforgettable heroine.

Growing up on their hardscrabble farm in rural Kentucky, fifteen-year-old Albertina “Bertie” Winslow has learned a lot from her mama, Polly. She knows how to lance a boil, make a pie crust, butcher a pig, and tend to every chore that needs doing. What she doesn’t know, but is forced to reckon with all too soon, is how to look after children as a mother should …

Inspired by stories told by the author’s mother and aunts, All the Forgivenesses is as authentic as it is lyrical–a captivating novel of family loyalty, redemption, and resilience.
