This story takes place in Europe during WWII and centers largely on the German occupation of France. The author, who uses alternating glipses into several peoples' lives weaves a story with his characters, which are well developed and believable. He does this and yet manages to maintain a certain amount of mystery and suspense. You'll find yourself being "drawn in" as the individuals of the story are drawn together. As an added bonus, you'll also come away with a better understanding of this time in history. I highly recommend this book.

Homegrown Tea: An Illustrated Guide to Planting, Harvesting, and Blending Teas and Tisanes by Cassie Liversidge
Homegrown Tea. Most of us in the far north of the United States will need a greenhouse to grow our own Camellia sinensis, otherwise known as the tea plant. All black, green and even white teas come from this little plant, related to the fragrant white camellia. However, we can make teas from so many more plants, including commonly known kitchen herbs and spices. If you're looking to take the step of cultivating a tea garden, this little book has plenty of instructions to make a start, including mint and lemongrass. Check it out on the library's new book shelf!
