    Polly's father has gone to the North Pole. Every night she looks out of the window and follows the Great Bear to the North Star, so she can say goodnight to him.

But on the night her father is due to return, there is a storm and he fails to arrive. When Polly closes her eyes she is in the midst of a blizzard in the Arctic with Sirius. The polar bears and wolves help her find her father, unconscious but still alive. And when Polly wakes up at home, her father is holding her in his arms. Polly Horner is both artist and storyteller. Her illustrations are dreamlike and evocative, with wonderful Arctic scenes. The bond between father and daughter gives a powerful charge to an unusually strong story.

  • To the North

    Elizabeth Bowen

    Paperback (Penguin Classics, March 1, 1997)
    A young woman’s secret love affair leads to a violent and tragic act in one of Elizabeth Bowen’s most acclaimed novels. To the North centers on two young women in 1920s London, the recently widowed Cecilia Summers and her late husband's sister, Emmeline. Drawn to each other in the wake of their loss, the two set up house together and gradually become more entwined than they know. But the comfortable refuge they have made is "a house built on sand"; both realize it cannot last. While Cecilia, capricious and unsure if she can really love anyone, moves reluctantly toward a second marriage, Emmeline, a gentle and independent soul, is surprised to find the calm tenor of her life disturbed for the first time by her attraction to the predatory Mark Linkwater. Bowen’s psychological acuity is on full display in a conclusion that plumbs the depths of this seemingly detached young woman in a single, life-shattering moment.

He makes friends with Jacob, a fellow logger and amateur astronomer, and together they study nature and begin to reconsider their values in life.

  • The New Star

    Taffy Davies

    Paperback (Abingdon Press, Aug. 1, 1997)
    At the dawn of time a new star was created. It was no brighter or more beautiful than any of the other stars studding the deep darkness of space. But this new star had a special purpose. It was there to announce the birth of a new king, a king whose life changed the world forever. The New Star follows the life of that star from its creation until it dies at the time when Jesus died on the cross. Of course, that was not the end of the story. Jesus rose again, the bright and morning star. Beautiful illustrations of stars and planets whirling through space appear on every spread. When one lifts the flap, the story of humankind and God's work with humankind appears from the Creation through the Resurrection.

  • To the North

    Elizabeth Bowen

    Paperback (Vintage/random Uk, May 1, 1999)
    "To The North" portrays a classic romantic entanglement of a sympathetic, honest, well-meaning young woman who cannot resist becoming involved with a man who is patently caddish and predatory. In striking and richly comic contrast to the turbulence of this passion is the cool, detached atmosphere of the house in St John's Wood in which it takes its course - where the young woman's sister-in-law with her strictly unromantic preoccupations is always near by, the orphaned teenager Pauline presents herself as gawky innocence itself, and the power-loving busybody Lady Waters misses nothing.
