Doug and Sally Mayfield will be in the store on Saturday, December 1 from 11 am to 1 pm to sign copies of their new book, Angle of Declination. In pitch-perfect prose, Angle of Declination tells the story of Allison Hayes and her husband Mike Bowman, a Vietnam vet whom she loves deeply yet struggles to understand. Mike and Allison's future seems boundless in 1973, but when their wanderlust takes them deep into the Canadian wilderness, something happens that causes their marriage to crumble and forces them to confront each other's demons, as well as their own. Alone and emotionally devastated, Allison returns to her roots, a sleepy little town on the St. Lawrence River, where she rebuilds her life with the help of her uncle, who is equal parts shaman and smuggler. From suburban Chicago to First Nation reservations to the Seaway villages of northern New York, Angle of Declination is a radiant odyssey of love, forgiveness and renewal.

Author Raeshma Jacob will be at The Bookcase on Saturday, December 1 at 2:00 p.m. to discuss and sign her new book One Petal at a Time: Growing in the Beauty of God. Growing up in India provided Raeshma Esther Jacob with a unique look at life. While she lived a good life and soaked in the beauty surrounding her, she realized as an adult that, One Petal at a Time: Growing in God's Love, is as easy as soaking in the beauty he's created in nature.
