Johanna Verweerd – THE WINTER GARDEN
Written by Holland’s most beloved Christian novelist.

After 15 years garden design artist, Ika receives a letter from her sister to say that her mother is dying. She moves back home to be with her and opens a Pandora’s box of memories and hurtful episodes. As her mother’s condition detiorates Ika tries to discover the secret of why she has always felt so unloved by her family.

THE BEE AND BEEKEEPING DISPLAY IN THE WINDOW looks lovely and bright with many interesting titles including:
Maya, the adventures of a bee – Waldemar Bonsels
The sweet life of bees – Sue Monk Kidd
Bee boles and bee houses – A M Foster  
The keeper of the bees – Gene Stratton-Porter
Bee season – Myla Goldberg
Looking forward to the new window we will be featuring gardening books about ferns and I am planning to bring from home a huge potted rabbit’s foot fern to show.

THE MAIN ITEM OF INTEREST in the shop at this time is an amazing rotating bookcase from the late 1800s complete with a 1877 ninth edition of Encyclopaedia Britannica. This is the final English edition before it transferred to the USA.

Two libraries have shown interest in this beautiful piece so come in quickly if you would like to see it.
