With so many new books coming out each year you're bound to miss some gems. From time-to-time the Middleborough Public Library will list a few of these "Hidden Gems" for your consideration.
The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, by Daniel James Brown.
If you loved Laura Hillenbrand's "Unbroken," nonfiction that reads like the best can't-put-down fiction, you'll want to pick up this week's Hidden Gem. Author Daniel James Brown masterfully pulls you into his story about the members of the University of Washington eight-oar crew team, nine working-class boys from rural Washington with little or no experience, shaped by their coach into award-winning rowers. Amazon notes "They remind the country of what can be done when everyone quite literally pulls together - a perfect melding of commitment, determination, and optimism … an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times."(Amazon)).
