This beautiful story of young Jenny and her two strong but gentle horses on a snowy New Year’s night is the last picture book written by Newbery Winning author, Patricia MacLachlan who passed away this year. The story comes alive with the glorious illustrations as the night unfolds when Jenny first takes all the children out for a snowy ride in the sleigh pulled by the horses, Tim and Tom. Later the grownups have their turn in the horse drawn sleigh until at last the horses and Jenny return to their home in the barn to rest for the winter’s night. A perfect winter tale before bedtime.

 I have placed BENEFICIENCE by Meredith Hall in so many customers hands, and there is no other book that they have returned to thank me for as much. It’s easy to see why Beneficence so profoundly moves readers and satisfies what they want in fiction. Hall’s story is universal, one of family loyalty and the different ways we process grief. It depicts the miraculous beauty of the natural world, and a family’s love of the land and the life they have labored to build on it. But more than anything it is Hall’s eloquent, resonant writing that uplifts readers and demonstrates how fiction can give new perspective and meaning to our own relationships and circumstances.

This is Kate Elizabeth Russell's debut novel. This story of a love affair, or what at least one of the people involved might describe as that, is complex and compelling -- one of this season's big buzzy novels that proves worthy of all that hype and attention. Its mix of desire, dread, suspense, and surrender will give you chills of every kind. I'm still on my way to the finish. How on earth is Russell going to resolve this?
