New Arrivals: Millions of Plums

New hardcover releases now in stock at Accent on Books:

Fearless Fourteen, by Janet Evanovich. There's a number in the title, Evanovich is the author -- it must be the new Stephanie Plum novel. It is, and if you're a Plum fan you have lots of company: the initial print run for this book was two million copies.

Christ of the Celts, by J. Philip Newell. Through Listening for the Heartbeat of God and a number of other works, Newell has become one of the leading figures in the revival of Celtic Christianity. In his new book he places Christ in the larger Celtic tradition, providing a spirituality of healing and wholeness both for the individual and the planet.

The Prince of Frogtown, by Rick Bragg. In his earlier books, All Over but the Shoutin' and Ava's Man, Bragg looked at the lives of his parents and grandparents. Here, he looks at his own situation, as well as his legacy, as he gets married and suddenly gains a ten-year-old stepson.

This Land Is Their Land, by Barbara Ehrenreich. Ehrenreich, author of the classic Nickel and Dimed, here looks at America in the first decade of the 21st century and decides that things are so bad that you just have to laugh. Incisive commentary and satire by one of our most renowned political and cultural commentators.

Savvy, by Ingrid Law. Can turning thirteen be a magical occasion? It certainly is if you're a member of the Beaumont family because that's when you get your own magical power, or "savvy." As Mibs Beaumont approaches that fateful birthday her life takes an unexpected turn and she heads off into a wild adventure. For ages 8-12.

The Other, by David Guterson. Another tale of the Pacific Northwest from the author of Snow Falling on Cedars. Two boyhood friends with different backgrounds cross paths again as adults, and one agrees to help the other disappear into the Washington woods -- an act with life-altering consequences.
