CLOSURE UPDATE: All branches of the Library will be closed until April 30, 2020 as a precaution to help limit the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow recommendations from all levels of government to determine if we need to extend this closure period. Please note that the ability to place holds has been deactivated during this period. This news post provides more information on our response to the situation, and will be kept up-to-date with any additional changes to Library service.
A lonely woman of 53 vanishes in fog - hidden in her cupboard is an expensive pair of cuff-links with a note: 'To You, with all possible love from your devoted, Me'. A fat 22-year-old never returns from an early morning walk - is her disappearance connected with her girlish crush on Dava, the blue-eyed 'therapist' whose speciality is 'inner harmony'? Experienced policemen know that most missing persons either turn up or go missing on purpose. But fresh young D. S. Freya Graffham won't drop it - until she discovers what links the people who disappear on 'The Hill', young and old, men and women, even a little dog. Susan Hill writes with compassion, humour and a unique understanding of the details of daily life. In Various Haunts of Men, she has created a small cathedral town (within the orbit of a large urban city) and filled it with recognizable characters.
