Week of May 5, 2014

Releases for the week of May 5th include THE LONGEST RIDE by Nicholas Sparks, the remarkable story of two couples whose lives intersect in profound and surprising ways; DEATH ANGEL, an Alexandra Cooper mystery from Linda Fairstein, who explores the rich --- and little-known --- history of New York’s City’s Central Park; THE SUPREME MACARONI COMPANY, Adriana Trigiani's novel that explores the tricky dynamics between Old World craftsmanship and New World ambition; and THE WORLD’S STRONGEST LIBRARIAN by Josh Hanagarne, a funny and uplifting story of how a Mormon kid with Tourette’s found salvation in books and weight lifting.

In this conclusion to Adriana Trigiani's Valentine trilogy, Valentine Roncalli is marrying Gianluca Vechiarelli, the love of her life. However, she hasn't truly considered the cultural and age differences between an American businesswoman and a native Italian who's 18 years her senior. The repercussions lead to a rollercoaster love story with a powerful emotional payoff.
