“Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.” -Good Reads
Haunting and thoughtful – we loved this book. It is beautifully written in a lyrical rhythm at different moments in time and paints vivid views of the Marsh. Kya Clark, while abandoned by many, finds a way to survive and inspire us all.
In 1903, Mamah and her husband, Edwin, commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design a new home for them. During the construction of the house, a powerful attraction developed between Mamah & Frank, and in time the lovers, each married with children, embarked on a course that would shock Chicago society and forever change their lives.
Drawing on years of research, Horan weaves little-known facts into a compelling narrative, vividly portraying the conflicts and struggles of a woman forced to choose between the roles of mother, wife, lover, and intellectual.
So glad to be part of the Wyoming Community!
Searching for colleges this winter?
We love this book by Loren Pope. It helps parents/students cut through the noise of annual rankings, thousands of pamphlets that show up in the mail and endless recommendations from family/friends.
College should and does change your life – to find your “ideal spot” – this book looks at not just the end results but how you can be educated for life.

Who knew that there was a story before “Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue” in 1492???? We love a deep dive into good historical fiction and this book does not disappoint…..
The Children Of the First Man tells the fascinating story of a European people gradually absorbed into the American culture until their literacy was lost and their Christian religion submerged in the legend of Madoc, the First Man.
Also a favorite as a fellow mid-west resident (an Indiana neighbor), we are thrilled to highlight Mr Thom and this wonderful book he has shared with us. Stop by the store – we have it in stock as well as several of his other novels.
