A Shooting Star (Paperback)
Sabrina Castro, an attractive woman with a strong New England heritage, is married to a wealthy, older California physician who no longer fulfills her dreams. An almost accidental misstep leads her down the slow descent of moral disintegration, until there is no place for her to go but up and out. How Sabrina comes to terms with her life is the theme of this absorbing personal drama, played out against the background of an old Peninsula estate where her mother lives among her servants, her memories of Boston, and her treasured family archives. A Shooting Star displays the storytelling powers that Wallace Stagner's fans have enjoyed for more than half a century.

A dream-come true for space geeks everywhere, what kid doesn't dream of being on the moon or, in this case, Mars? Preparing for this adventure is arduous, time consuming and knowledge-expanding, which author Maberry brings home in fascinating detail and authority. Tristan, whose Mom and Dad are also going with the first 50 humans to colonize Mars, has a longstanding girlfriend in Izzy - who both have to deal with reality TV, the media and constant attention, as this is a one-way trip for Tristan. Intrigue on the ground in the form of violent Neo-Luddites protesters - things go haywire on the voyage. With a fact-moving plot, an interesting subplot of unknown Chinese Martian colonists, the thrill of space is wonderfully conveyed in this fantastic story. Hang on as I hope there are sequels in store! - Maureen
