Spring Reading

Anna Viktorovna lives in Moscow with her young son and father. Her husband, an officer in the Red Army, is on active duty thousands of miles away. She meets Alexey Bulyagkov, a powerful Soviet official, and they become very good friends and eventually lovers. Then, a KGB colonel forces Anna to spy on Alexey or her family will be harmed. "The Russian Affair" by Michael Wallner takes the reader into a world of intrigue, love and espionage during the Cold War.

Gardening, canning and freezing are quickly regaining popularity with many people. "Tart and Sweet" by Kelly Geary and Jessie Knadler contains 101 canning and pickling recipes. Fruits and vegetables feature in these recipes for jams, chutneys, marmalades, syrups, relishes, sauces, and salsas. These are small-batch recipes, perfect for making just a few jars. The book also gives recipes for you to use the goods you've preserved.

Baseball's longest game is featured in "Bottom of the 33rd" by Dan Barry. The game occurred on April 18, 1981, and was played between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings. This eight-hour game is recounted here with all the emotions that accompanied it throughout the evening and into the night. Big name players, players starting their careers, and others who would remain in the minor leagues come alive for the reader.
