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.
We Were Liars, by E. Lockhart
Although this week’s Hidden Gem is well-known to the young adult (YA) audience for which it was written, We Were Liars may not be as familiar to adults. If you’ve thought about picking up a YA book to see what all the buzz is about, give this one a try.
When things start to go sour beneath the picture-perfect exterior of a wealthy family’s summer paradise, romance, life-long friendships and financial stability are all at risk. The story takes place at the family’s four summer houses built on their private island off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard. You’ll be surprised at the lengths people will go to to protect the ones they love in this suspenseful tale with a surprise, you-never-saw-it-coming ending.
Abraham Lincoln in the Kitchen, by Rae Katherine Eighmey
An anecdote wherein Abraham Lincoln helped cook dinner for his family inspired author, cook, and food historian Eighmey to uncover the probable culinary habits of America's 16th president. Using thorough research, investigative prowess, and a little guesswork, Eighmey has created a fascinating and surprising history lesson, and enabled readers to try and recreate early-to-mid 19th century American cuisine by including 55 period recipes adapted for today’s home cooks.
