In the 1930s, Kate's mother played for the Racine Belles, in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Now, twenty veterans of the league are gathering for a reunion in the Battlefords, for induction into the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame. But all is not peaceful under the prairie sky. Anonymous letters have been received by her mother's teammates, warning them to stay away from the event. The sinister meaning soon becomes clear. One of the Belles is found murdered. Kate valiantly tries not to interfere in the police investigation which ensues but, as she talks to former team members, she finds that questions from the past demand answers. It is only when Kate finds herself in mortal danger thatshe realizes she's come too close to the truth." -from the dustjacket. Nam e inked to flyleaf, else very good in unclipped dustjacket.

140 HAY, Elizabeth Alone in the Classroom : A novel. First Edition in dustjacket.
McClelland and Stewart, Toronto, 2011, ISBN:9780771037948 
HAY, Elizabeth. Alone in the Classroom : A novel . (Toronto): McClelland and Stewart, (2011). First Printing. Pp. (8),[1]-306,(6). 8vo, green cloth with silver titles to spine. "In a small prairie school in 1929, Connie Floodhelps a backward student, Michael Graces, learn how to read. Observing the m and darkening their lives is the principal, Parley Burns, whose strange behaviour culminates in an attack so disturbing its repercussions continue to the present day. Connie's niece, Anne, tells the story. Impelled by curiosity about her dynamic, adventurous aunt and her more conventional mother, she revisits Connie's past and her mother's broken childhood. In the process, she unravels the enigma of Parley Burns and the mysterious (and unrelated) deaths of two young girls. As the novel moves deeper into their lives, the triangle of principal, teacher, student opens out into other emotional triangles -- aunt, niece, lover; mother, daughter, granddaughter -- until a sudden, capsizing love thrusts Anne herself into a newly independent life,.This spellbinding tale -- set in Saskatchewan and the Ottawa Valley -- cro sses generations and cuts to the bone. It probes the roots of obsessive love and hate, how the hurts and desires of childhood persist and are passed on as if in the blood. It lays bare the urgency of discovering what we were never told about the past. And it celebrates the process of becoming who weare in a world full of startling connections that lie just out of sight." - from the dust jacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
