Sept. 5 – Susan Vreeland (Lisette’s List) at Kimbel’s, Wachesaw
From the bestselling author of such acclaimed novels as Girl in Hyacinth Blue, Luncheon of the Boating Party, and Clara and Mr. Tiffany, comes a richly imagined story of a woman’s awakening in the south of Vichy France – to the power of art, to the beauty of provincial life, and to love in the midst of war.
In 1937, young Lisette Roux and her husband, André, move from Paris to a village in Provence to care for André’s grandfather Pascal (a framemaker who traded frames for paintings by Pisarro and Cézanne).
Lisette regrets having to give up her dream of becoming a gallery apprentice and longs for the comforts and sophistication of Paris.
Pascal begins to tutor Lisette in both art and life, revealing the Provençal landscape in a new light. When war breaks out, André goes off to the front, but not before hiding Pascal’s paintings to keep them from the Nazis’ reach.
With German forces spreading across Europe, the sudden fall of Paris, and the rise of Vichy France, Lisette sets out to locate the paintings.
Through joy and tragedy, occupation and liberation, small acts of kindness and great acts of courage, Lisette learns to forgive the past, to live robustly and to love again.
Tues., Sept. 9 – J.A. Jance (Remains of Innocence) at Inlet Affairs
The 52nd mystery by this New York Times bestselling author features Sheriff Joanna Brady who must solve two perplexing cases that may be linked in a thrilling tale of suspense that brings to life Arizona’s Cochise County and the desert Southwest in all its beauty and mystery.
