A quick read.

This novel takes place in Montana during the 1950's. A young Catherine Lemay is sent to survey a canyon for the Smithsonian and a wealthy business man that wants to build a power generating dam. When Catherine finds evidence of ancient artifacts she finds out who she really is working for. Along the way she meets a cowboy, John H, who has a unique understanding of the wild horses he paints. A great depiction of the landscape and a glimpse of how the open wilds of the United States get altered for both good and bad. I recommend this book.

“Sometime books don’t find us until the right time” from the Storied Life of A.J. Fikry.
This is a story that the Evening Book Club chose for the August meeting. I would never have chosen to read this title on my own, but I am glad it was the pick of the month. Filled with interesting characters about a man that owns a bookstore. A love story about A.J Fikry who finds a mysterious package left in his bookstore that gives him the opportunity to change his life around.
A good story to read if you like bookstores……
This is one reason why I belong to a book club, I read interesting books that I wouldn't normally select for myself and end up loving the stories. -- submitted by Michelle P.

This is a first novel for Backman and I hope there are more to come. It is a terrific story of a grumpy old man (well really not so old) and his relationship with his neighbors in a block of row houses in Sweden. Backman's story takes you through a range of emotions and in the end you understand and love his character, the man called Ove.
Truly one of the best books I've read this year!
