 Elmore Leonard    Mrs. Ted Bliss
  
by Stanley Elkin

A young boy living in the Florida backwoods is forced to decide the fate of a fawn he has lovingly raised as a pet. Relive the wonder of a childhood favorite that has been capturing the hearts of readers for more than half a century. An instant bestseller when it was released in 1938, this Pulitzer Prize winner has been read and loved by school-age children across the nation for more than fifty years. In this classic story of the Baxter family and their wild, hard, and satisfying life in remote central Florida, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings has written one of the great novels of our times. A rich and varied tale -- tender in its understanding of boyhood, crowded with the excitement of the backwoods hunt, with vivid descriptions of the primitive, beautiful hammock country, written with humor and earthy philosophy. The Yearling is a novel for readers of all ages. Its glowing picture of a life refreshingly removed from modern patterns of living is universal in its revelation of simple courageous people and the beliefs they must live by.

In Cassadaga, Florida, the paranormal is normal and chats with the dead are an everyday occurrence. Lynn is unaware of the town's psychic connection when she drives into town for a visit with her aunt. But strangeness turns dangerous when the president of the Psychic Society is murdered after being cursed by a coven of witches. Are the Society member's attempts to solve the murder through psychic methods going to yield results or just more victims?
