CURRENTLY READING

 Elder Anthony The Vexations

Elder Anthony of Optina
I have a devotion to the Optina Fathers. This is book 2 in the series. Elder Anthony is incredible. In connection with this book blog, I discovered he loved reading A LOT, and he took lots of notes while reading.

The Vexations
Cool historical novel on Erik Satie!

 Guide to Healing the Earth Treachery

If You Cross the River

Guide to Healing
“Tom Brown, Jr., is America’s most acclaimed outdoorsman, tracker, and teacher. When he was eight he met Stalking Wolf, an Apache elder who taught the young man how to survive in the wild, and more importantly, how to value our place in the natural order.”

Treachery
I have deeply enjoyed the 3 previous books historical mysteries in this series on Giordano Bruno. This volume 4 was said to have been published in 2014, but I was never able to find it. Finally now available. It’s over 500 pages, I hope it’s as good as the previous ones.
“Summer, 1585: As English ships are held captive in Spain, fear mounts of an Invincible Armada, built by King Philip II, and intended to invade English shores. Sir Francis Drake prepares to embark on an expedition by royal commission to cross the Atlantic and seize major Spanish ports, diverting Philip’s American treasure supplies to Queen Elizabeth. Giordano Bruno, radical philosopher and spy, accompanies his friend Sir Philip Sidney to Plymouth to oversee Drake’s departure. Unbeknownst to Bruno, Sidney intends to join the mission – and he wants Bruno to go too. But when a ship captain is brutally murdered, and Drake’s life threatened, it becomes clear that someone plans to destroy the expedition before it begins. Bruno and Sidney hunt for the killer, but are they being lured into a trap? And when Drake’s young wife and her cousin arrive, Bruno and Sidney find themselves thrown into an unexpected rivalry.”

If You Cross the River
On my Edelweiss shelf since May… Presented as “a modern fable about friendship, self-determination, and the power of words.”

CURRENT AND NEXT AUDIOBOOKS

        The Masque of the red death

Sharko
I was curious to try this popular French author. This is an edge of your seat story. A woman cop finds herself having to kill a man in self-defense – the guy was definitely not an angel. BUT she was investigating something on her own. So her husband, also a cop, does all he can to make it look like a crime scene.
They both work on the team to investigate what happened there, and are afraid all along they will be caught for what they did, as there are really super smart investigators on their team.
Great story, but horrific details.

The Masque of the Red Death
I hope this classic horror story won’t be as tough. I’ll be listening to it for The Classics Club.
