On Mystic Lake: A Novel (Ballantine Reader's Circle)
On Mystic Lake: A Novel (Ballantine Reader's Circle)
Annie Colwater’s husband has just confessed that he’s in love with a younger woman. Devastated, Annie retreats to the small town where she grew up. There, she is reunited with her first love, Nick Delacroix, a recent widower who is unable to cope with his silent, emotionally scarred young daughter. Together, the three of them begin to heal. But just when Annie believes she’s been given a second chance at happiness, her world is turned upside down again, and she is forced to make a choice that no woman in love should ever have to make.

What do you do when everything you hold dear, everything you believe yourself to be, proves not to be true? Like Scarlett O'Hara, you go home, if not to Tara, then to the last place that you felt like you. Award-winning author Kristin Hannah makes her hardcover debut by taking readers to just such a place in On Mystic Lake. As her only child leaves to study abroad and her husband admits his love for a younger woman, Annie Colwater feels invisible. Having devoted herself to being the best wife and mother she could be for the last 20 years, Annie no longer knows who she is. She heads home to her father and to Mystic, Washington--where she grew up, where the dreams she barely remembers first blossomed, and where her first love, Nick Delacroix, still lives. Back in Mystic, Annie receives a healthy dose of perspective: Nick's wife has recently committed suicide, leaving Nick to find solace in the bottom of a Scotch bottle while his 6-year-old daughter, Izzie--who hasn't spoken since her mother's death--is doing her best to "disappear" just like Mommy. Annie volunteers to care for Izzie, since Nick cannot understand what his grieving daughter needs. And in the process, Annie recovers herself, the woman she thought gone forever, while Nick realizes that his future lies with Annie and Izzie. Just when the future starts to look bright for the three, Annie is faced with a devastating choice between the life she thought had left her behind, and a new beginning with Nick and Izzie, who helped to unearth her forgotten dreams. Kristin Hannah has produced a treasure of a book, one that will make you cry and will strike a chord in anyone who has ever had to pick up the pieces and start over. --Alison Trinkle

Sunset with Vacant Pond Hockey Rink
Sunset with Vacant Pond Hockey Rink
This is an empty pond hockey rink at Sunset. The only reason it is empty is because it is -31 degrees. Generally hockey stops in Canada shortly after it falls below -20.
The best outdoor exercise!

A couple of years ago, I had the rink of my dreams. This year, there's been so much snow, I doubt there will be a rink. Sigh.

The Rink (1984 Original Broadway Cast)
Best known as a star vehicle for Liza Minnelli and Chita Rivera, The Rink was a minor success for the team of John Kander and Fred Ebb (Cabaret, Chicago). Long unavailable on CD, the original 1984 cast recording has been rereleased by JAY in an excellent remastering (though with the odd plot it's unfortunate the package includes no lyrics or synopsis). Terrence McNally's story follows a mother (Rivera, who won her first Tony for the role) who has sold the family roller rink to developers, triggering a series of flashbacks for her and her daughter (Minnelli). There are a number of good men's songs, capably handled through multiple roles by, among others, Jason Alexander, Scott Holmes, and Ronn Carroll, including "Blue Crystal," the ballad "Marry Me," and the Dolly-esque welcome number "After All These Years." But the true firepower belongs to the stars: Minnelli's "Colored Lights" and "All the Children in a Row," Rivera's "Chief Cook and Bottle Washer" and "We Can Make It," and the duo's "The Apple Doesn't Fall," a model of Broadway diva swagger. --David Horiuchi
