Gayle M. Smith recommends these great reads:::::

My book recommends in no particular order.
1. I just finished reading Apothecary’s Garden by Jeanette Lynes. If you like historical novels with a female protagonist you will enjoy this delightful victorian romance set amongst the flowers and healing herbs of Lavender Fitch’s garden. Introduce a spirit medium and her disfigured assistant and you have a satisfying read.

2. Meaghan Hackinen’s non-fiction account of her cycling adventure down the west coast is a worthy read. South Away allows the reader to adventure along with Meaghan as she encounters different characters and reflects on her relationship with her sister and mother. https://bookshop.newestpress.com/products/south-away-the-pacific-coast-on-two-wheels

3. Matthew Hughes young adult novel, The Emir’s Falcon, promises an adventure to save a falcon. Combine three teens from different cultures, with the wilderness, a bear, and a falcon and you have a great story. Plus, Shadowpaw Press is offering a Christmas discount. Just use this code! XMAS2022
4. If you have a foodie, or a hype-taster on your shopping list, then dee Hobsbawn-Smith’s,  Bread & Water,  an award winning collection of essays about food culture, is a well written and thoughtful read.
