Check out in the library this week….
Face of the Earth by Deborah Raney. When Mitchell’s wife, Jill, kisses him goodbye, he has no idea that he may never see her again. When she doesn’t return and the police can’t find her, Mitch asks his neighbor, Shelley, for help. As months pass, Mitch and Shelley grow closer. How can he honor his vows to a woman who’s vanished?

Snow on the Tulips by Liz Tolsma. In the twilight of the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands, the Germans have taken everything Cornelia had to give, even what was most precious to her. Now Gerrit Laninga-a man who puts God and country above all else-arrives at her house, needing help. She is terrified for herself and terrified for her family, but most of all, terrified of the pain she might feel again if she allows herself to love Gerrit. Her hope is to be free from her paralyzing fear.
