Keys to Mysterious Places

Some libraries can seem mysterious (is yours?) and authors have been known to use it to their advantage in their novels. This one does just that with a dose of mythical realism that is both strange and beautiful. Sound appealing? Then consider this title for your next bookclub option! We have 6 copies.

An enchanted collection of linked, intertwined stories cleverly built around the idea of keys, literal and metaphorical. The key to a house, the key to a heart, the key to a secret: the keys in this extraordinary book not only unlock elements of the characters’ lives, they promise further labyrinths on the other side. One special key opens a library, a garden, and clues to at least two lovers’ fate. One key keeps a mystical diary locked (for good reason). 

If love is the treasure, laughter is the key. -Yakov Smirnoff
