The Quilter’s Kitchen by Jennifer Chiaverini
Continuing in the tradition of Chiaverini’s bestselling holiday offerings, The Christmas Quilt and The New Year’s Quilt, this work tells the story of how Chef Anna, one of the newest members of the circle of quilters, comes to write the official cookbook for Elm Creek Quilts. Give this to a warm, funny, creative homemaking friend and I promise they will want to read all the Elm Creek Quilts novels afterward
The Book of Longing by Leonard Cohen
For your brother, your sister or your mother, I can’t think of anyone who won’t love to have this as a gift. Poems written and illustrated by the great thinker himself. (He’s coming to Holland soon again, I’ve heard- don’t miss it!)
Agatha Christie by Laura Thompson
Agatha Christie is the world’s best-selling crime writer. But behind the public persona of the cosy ‘Queen of Crime’ was a remarkable and complex woman. Her life-story is told here by a most remarkable, emphatic and compassionate biographer.
