Hi, my name is John but I go by the moniker Atrian42. I have been a volunteer with Distributed Proofreaders Canada, the organization that provides public-domain e-books to Faded Page, since August 2016. Since then I have been involved in many aspects of the DPC community and recently started contributing new content. When you participate in DPC you get exposed to a wide range of books and publications. My own tastes are varied but I especially like books that tell a good story and you can find them anywhere. Here are some of my recommendations of books in the Faded Page catalogue.
The Sojourner, by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.
A tale of an American pioneer who works a farm in the American Midwest. The book chronicles his life and his love of the land and the people he meets along the way. He copes with difficult family members and children but they can’t break his deep connection to the land and his odd assortment of friends ... a great story.
Peace River Country, by Ralph Allen.
A book about the Canadian prairies and a family who travels to escape from an alcoholic father. They meet many people along the way and their semi-mythical goal: the Peace River Country of northern Alberta always seems to be right around every corner. An endearing tale for Canada’s western lands.
Hornblower and the Hotspur, by C.S. Forester.
I read some of the Horatio Hornblower series as a teenager but could only find two or three of the series at my local library. Faded Page brings you the complete series of 11 books. I worked on several of the novels and I especially liked this entry. A rip-roaring adventure novel telling the story of Forester’s hero as he battles the French during the Napoleonic Wars.
Peyton Place, by Grace Metalious
Peyton Place is an engrossing story of three women living in a small New England town as they confront issues of sexual abuse, murder and racism. Metalious weaves a splendid narrative that encapsulates the flavour of small town life in 1950s America.
The Gathering Storm, by Winston Churchill
Volume I of a six volume series presents the Second World War from the perspective of one of the great men of our time. A massive chronicle, Churchill offers a first person view of the events of that critical era that nearly ripped the entire world asunder. Included in his writing is much of the correspondence he wrote which gives a unique behind the scenes look at what was happening as the allies confronted the menace to the free world. Can’t wait for the rest of the series which Faded Page will eventually host.
