Bellevue Square by Michael Redhill
Jean Mason has a doppelganger. She’s never seen her, but others swear they have. Apparently, her identical twin hangs out in Kensington Market, where she sometimes buys churros and drags an empty shopping cart down the streets, like she’s looking for something to put in it. Jean’s a grown woman with a husband and two kids, as well as a thriving bookstore in downtown Toronto, and she doesn’t rattle easily—not like she used to. But after two customers insist they’ve seen her double, Jean decides to investigate.

She begins at the crossroads of Kensington Market: a city park called Bellevue Square. Although she sees no one who looks like her, it only takes a few visits to the park for her to become obsessed with the possibility of encountering her twin in the flesh. With the aid of a small army of locals who hang around in the park, she expands her surveillance, making it known she’ll pay for information or sightings. A peculiar collection of drug addicts, scam artists, philanthropists, philosophers and vagrants—the regulars of Bellevue Square—are eager to contribute to Jean’s investigation. But when some of them start disappearing, she fears her alleged double has a sinister agenda. Unless Jean stops her, she and everyone she cares about will face a fate much stranger than death.

The Cowboy in Me
In The Cowboy in Me, Robin Langford offers us a true account of his life as a cowboy throughout western Canada. Beginning in 1947, follow Langford on a journey that takes him from his tumultuous home life in Saskatchewan to being a cowboy, trapper, and guide in the back country of Alberta and BC, and back again as he learns to ranch and farm on the unpredictable prairies. Along the way, meet an assortment of hard-working heroes, ranchers, lost souls, and legendary Canadian cowboys. While one of Langford’s greatest pleasures is riding in new country and cresting the next rise, the bond he has with his wife Penny and the family they created emerges as his greatest and most lasting adventure. As he says, this book is not only about being a cowboy, but about "how we face challenges, regardless of what our jobs are or what paths we choose." This memoir inspires all of us to cowboy up”.

Come down to meet Robin as he shares his true account of his life as a cowboy throughout western Canada. Books for sale just in time for Christmas!
