HBN LIBRARY PICK OF THE WEEK

This week we’ve chosen Bertie’s Gift by Hannah Coates. Bertie is all alone: his beloved sister and fellow beagle Molly has been adopted, leaving him behind. But when Bertie is taken in by the Green family, it seems he's finally found a place to call home. Yet he swiftly realises that the kind and loving Green family is in crisis. After a tragedy two years ago, they've never recovered - and as Christmas approaches, grief is pulling them apart.

Never has a four-legged friend been more in need - and brave, warm-hearted Bertie must rise to the challenge. Can he find Molly and bring the Green family back together again...all in time for Christmas Day? We have a copy of Bertie’s Gift available to borrow from the library. This week’s pick is sponsored by Oshin the library mascot!

HBN LIBRARY PICK OF THE WEEK

This week we’ve chosen Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at the Christmas Fair by Heidi Swain. When Anna takes on the role of companion to the owner of Wynthorpe Hall, on the outskirts of Wynbridge, she has no idea that her life is set to change beyond all recognition.

A confirmed ‘bah humbug’ when it comes to Christmas, Anna is amazed to find herself quickly immersed in the eccentric household, and when youngest son Jamie unexpectedly arrives home it soon becomes obvious that her personal feelings are going all out to compromise her professional persona.

Jamie, struggling to come to terms with life back in the Fens, makes a pact with Anna – she has to teach him to fall back in love with Wynthorpe Hall, while he helps her fall back in love with Christmas. But will it all prove too much for Anna, or can the family of Wynthorpe Hall warm her heart once and for all...?

Join Anna for a festive journey festooned with sleigh rides and silver bells and help her discover her happy-ever-after. We have a copy of Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at the Christmas Fair available to borrow from the library or download as an eBook from the library website (www.douglaslibrary.im). This week’s pick is sponsored by Oshin the library mascot!
