NEW HEATHER'S PICK

Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman is announcing a new Heather's Pick for February: The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel.  

Many people dream of escaping modern life, but most will never act on it. The Stranger in the Woods is the remarkable true story of a man who lived alone in the woods of Maine for 27 years, making this dream a reality — not out of anger at the world, but simply because he preferred to live on his own.

In 1986, a shy and intelligent twenty-year-old named Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the forest. He would not have a conversation with another human being until nearly three decades later, when he was caught stealing food. This is a vividly detailed account of Knight's secluded life – a gripping story of survival that asks fundamental questions about solitude, community, and what makes a good life.

But one night when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story. What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family—a chilling tale of deception, duplicity and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.

INDIGO'S STAFF PICK OF THE MONTH

Indigo's Staff Picks program is the perfect place to start looking for your next favourite book. Each month we choose the book that Indigo employees at home office and in stores love the most, and what we think our customers will love.

The Staff Pick of the Month for February is Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller. In this spine-tingling tale, Ingrid Coleman writes letters to her husband, Gil, about the truth of their marriage, but she never sends them. Instead, she hides them within the thousands of books her husband has collected. After she writes her final letter, Ingrid disappears.

Twelve years later, her adult daughter Flora comes home to look after her injured father. Secretly, Flora has never believed her mother is dead, and she starts asking questions, without realizing that the answers she's looking for are hidden in the books that surround her. This is a must-read title for fans of puzzles and intrigue.
