For Liberty Press’s Bookends, Cassie Lehnherr picked books by two Bywater authors: Ellen Hart and Wynn Malone.

“For the first review of the summer, I had a difficult time choosing which books I wanted to avoid the heat with. I’ve been in need of something thought-provoking and exciting so I first chose The Lost Women of Lost Lake by Ellen Hart.” This is the eighteenth instalment of Jane Lawless series and, says Cassie, it “proves that a long-running series doesn’t have to become dull and slow-paced. In fact, the saga can become more enthralling and action-packed than ever.”

Cassie’s second pick was Finding the Grain. It’s “a very entertaining read and an interesting look at class relations and views on homosexuality from the late 1970s to today by an impressive newcomer in Wynn Malone. A well-to-do “straight” girl and a lesbian farm girl certainly could never truly and openly be together. Or could they?”
