Clean Reads - Large Print Standing Order Plan

Option Number: [2]

General fiction, mystery and romance titles that do not contain graphic violence, explicit sexuality or strong profanity. Full of encouragement, warmth and humor that you’d be comfortable giving to your grandmother!



With its tree-lined streets, vibrant downtown and curbside planters, Amberley, Massachusetts, seems a good place for Cate Saunders to start over two years after her husband was killed in Iraq. Cate has barely unpacked before she’s drawn into a circle of friends. And as Amberley reveals itself to be a town shaped by war, their stories show Cate an unexpected way forward.


Customer Reviews

“. . . a heartwarming story of survival, forgiveness, and moving on.”

— Booklist

“Warmth, humor, and friendship juxtapose against the raw reality of war's cruel hand in this engaging debut. The many poignant layers enrich the reading experience and enable the vivid characters to sing deeply into one's heart. Strong women (stronger than they realize themselves to be) grace the pages, but the most exquisite aspect of the story is found in the reminder of the collective strength of community.”
