Pre­pare your­self for fall with this week’s CCPL se­lec­tions


Spe­cial to the Whig

This week the good peo­ple at the Ce­cil County Pub­lic Li­brary have as­sem­bled a list of fall har­vest books to bring in the first days of au­tumn. It’s time to move out of that sum­mer mind­set and gear up for brisker weather, golden leaves and pump­kin pick­ing. Har­vest (2013)

By Jim Crace A small pas­toral vil­lage’s res­i­dents are sus­pi­cious of three strangers who ar­rive just af­ter an un­ex­plained fire. Set in feu­dal Eng­land, the vil­lagers are pro­tec­tive of their mas­ter and quick to levy charges of witch­craft. Swift pun­ish­ment and a thirst for re­venge turns this quiet ham­let up­side down. Short-listed for the Man Booker Prize. Har­vest (1997) By Tess Ger­rit­sen Dr. Abby DiMat­teo’s hon­ored to join a top trans­plant team but a dif­fi­cult life-and­death de­ci­sion soon jeop­ar­dizes her ca­reer. Abby learns that donor and hospi­tal records have been fal­si­fied and she re­fuses to ig­nore the facts, much less re­main silent.
