Warm up with a good book this winter at Troy Public Library's
2nd Annual Adult Winter Reading Program: Hot Reads for Cold Nights, from January 13 through March 13.

To participate, register beginning December 16. Then, starting January 13, submit a brief review of each title you read or listen to. You don't have to write a novel, but please include enough information for the review to be helpful to someone who is thinking about choosing that title. A short paragraph will do.

Each week, two lucky readers will receive a prize, and a Grand Prize of a Kindle Paperwhite eReader and case will be awarded at the conclusion of the program. Prizes will be awarded by random drawings from all reviews submitted, and are provided by the Friends of the Troy Public Library.

So warm up the long, cold Michigan winter nights with some hot reads from the Library. Stop by the Adult Information desk for suggestions, or check out our Bookletters booklists.

Happy reading!

Prisoner of Love`

Review
Love the covers of these types of books, I want to put a plain paper wrapper around the cover of the book to bring into the public. Three short si-fi romance stories, not as hot as the cover but a good read.

Title
orphan train
Author
Christina Baker Kline
Review
This is a lovely story of the lives of two women. Vivian, in her nineties, was an immigrant, orphan, and an abused child Molly, in her late teens, was abandoned and lived in foster care most of her life. Even though both reacted differently to their abandonment and being raised by strangers, they enriched each others lives.

The process of organizing an attic generated a story from the orphan train which ran from 1854-1929. The idea of portage runs through out the story as both women move from place to place taking what they can with them to glue their own lives together.

This was a lovely way introduce some of the history of the orphan train.
