The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

Some women get everything. Some women get everything they deserve.

Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more — a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted.

To everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne — a socialite and philanthropist — and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale.

Amber’s envy could eat her alive … if she didn’t have a plan. Amber uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to insinuate herself into the family’s life — the first step in a meticulous scheme to undermine her. Before long, Amber is Daphne’s closest confidante, traveling to Europe with the Parrishes and their lovely young daughters, and growing closer to Jackson. But a skeleton from her past may undermine everything that Amber has worked towards, and if it is discovered, her well-laid plan may fall to pieces.

With shocking turns and dark secrets that will keep you guessing until the very end, The Last Mrs. Parrish is a fresh, juicy, and utterly addictive thriller from a diabolically imaginative talent. (From the publisher.)

The Golden House by Salman Rushdie

On the day of Barack Obama’s inauguration, an enigmatic billionaire from foreign shores takes up residence in the architectural jewel of “the Gardens,” a cloistered community in New York’s Greenwich Village.

The neighborhood is a bubble within a bubble, and the residents are immediately intrigued by the eccentric newcomer and his family. Along with his improbable name, untraceable accent, and unmistakable whiff of danger, Nero Golden has brought along his three adult sons:

… Petya, agoraphobic, alcoholic, and a brilliant recluse with a tortured mind;
… Apu, the flamboyant artist, sexually and spiritually omnivorous, famous on twenty blocks;
… D, at twenty-two the baby of the family, harboring an explosive secret even from himself.

There is no mother, no wife; at least not until Vasilisa, a sleek Russian expat, snags the septuagenarian Nero, becoming the queen to his king—a queen in want of an heir.

Our guide to the Goldens’ world is their neighbor Rene, an ambitious young filmmaker. Researching a movie about the Goldens, he ingratiates himself into their household. Seduced by their mystique, he is inevitably implicated in their quarrels, their infidelities, and, indeed, their crimes.

Meanwhile, like a bad joke, a certain comic-book villain embarks upon a crass presidential run that turns New York upside-down.

Set against the strange and exuberant backdrop of current American culture and politics, The Golden House also marks Salman Rushdie’s triumphant and exciting return to realism. The result is a modern epic of love and terrorism, loss and reinvention—a powerful, timely story told with the daring and panache that make Salman Rushdie a force of light in our dark new age. (From the publisher.)

March 29, 2018

This winter we will meet to discuss a few books that were chosen as finalists for the Giller Prize Book Award.

Next Year for Sure by Zoey Leigh Peterson
After nine years together, Kathryn and Chris have the sort of relationship most would envy. They speak in the shorthand they have invented, complete one another's sentences and help each other through every daily and existential dilemma. When Chris tells Kathryn about his attraction to Emily, a vivacious young woman he sees often at the laundromat, Kathryn encourages him to ask her out on a date--certain that her bond with Chris is strong enough to weather whatever may come.

As Kathryn and Chris stumble into polyamory, Next Year, For Sure tracks the tumultuous, revelatory and often very funny year that follows.

May 1, 2018

In 1912 the City of Prince Albert embarked on a project that had the potential to revolutionize electrical energy production in the prairies: building the first hydro-electric dam in the province. Through a complex set of circumstances, the construction was halted in the summer of the next year, unfortunately never to resume. Today the massive remnants are a stark reminder of how easily a well-meant vision can turn into a financial disaster with unforeseen and long-term consequences.

Paul Van Pul is a Belgian Land Surveyor who has been living in Saskatchewan for 32 years. He has published four books on Hydraulic Engineering History and various articles on the same subject. He has a keen interest in the past and future of the Saskatchewan Rivers, especially the weir in Saskatoon and the La Colle Falls Lock and Dam Site. He regularly speaks on the above subjects at the University of Saskatchewan and at other venues.

A former mob lawyer and a former FBI agent might not seem to have much in common However, they must learn how to get along and cooperate with each other when under the witness protection program, they find themselves together at an exclusive golf resort. A hit man lurks nearby, and he has his eye on both of them. The only way that they can maximize their chances of survival is to become a team. With a little bit of luck, they will escape this uncomfortable situation, even if they nearly kill each other in the process.

A much-needed boost, in the form of a new factory, is promised to the residents of the tiny fishing village St. Marie-La-Mauderne, provided they can lure a doctor to take up full-time residency on the island. Inspired, the villagers devise a scheme to make Dr. Christopher Lewis a local.

Co-sponsored by French Canadian Society of Prince Albert.
