Meet The Candidates for 2019
These are the titles on this year's ballot; please read the accompanying synopsis of each title and then make your selection.
The Baker's Secret by Stephen P. Kiernan
On June 5, 1944, as dawn rises over a small town on the Normandy coast of France, Emmanuelle is making the bread that has sustained her fellow villagers in the dark days since the Germans invaded her country. Under the cold, watchful eyes of armed soldiers, she builds a clandestine network of barter and trade that she and the villagers use to thwart their occupiers.
Carnegie's Maid by Marie Benedict
Clara Kelley is not who they think she is. Serving as a lady's maid in the household of Andrew Carnegie requires skills she doesn't have and answering to an icy mistress who rules her sons and her domain with an iron fist. What Clara does have is a resolve as strong as the steel Pittsburgh is becoming famous for, coupled with an uncanny understanding of business, and Andrew begins to rely on her.
Lassoing The Sun: A Year In America's National Parks by Mark Woods
Mark Woods’s most vivid childhood memories are set against a backdrop of mountains, woods, and fireflies in places like Redwood, Yosemite, and Grand Canyon National Parks. On the eve of turning fifty and a little burned out, Mark decides to reconnect with the great outdoors by spending a year visiting the national parks. This is a book about family, the parks, the legacies we inherit, and the ones we leave behind.
Oil And Marble by Stephanie Storey
Michelangelo is a virtual unknown when he returns to Florence and wins the commission to carve what will become one of the most famous sculptures of all time: David. Meanwhile, Leonardo da Vinci's life is falling apart: he loses the hoped for David commission; he can't seem to finish any project; he is obsessed with his ungainly flying machine; he almost dies in war; and he is haunted by a woman he has seen in the market—a merchant's wife, whom he is finally commissioned to paint. Her name is Lisa, and she becomes his muse.
A Piece Of The World by Christina Baker Kline
To Christina Olson, the entire world is her family farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. The only daughter in a family of sons, Christina is tied to her home by health and circumstance and seems destined for a small life. Instead she becomes Andrew Wyeth’s first great inspiration and the subject of one of the best known paintings of the twentieth century: Christina’s World.
