New releases for week of Oct. 7

  Fans of "Vampire Chronicles" author Anne Rice can learn a little more about her through her new memoir, “Called Out of Darkness.”
  Rice reflects on her Catholic childhood, losing her belief in God and her eventual return to the church. She writes about growing up in New Orleans, her mother’s drinking, her life in Berkeley, the deaths of her daughter and husband, the birth of her son, and ultimately, her journey from decades of being an atheist to once again believing in God.
  Readers also can look for John LeCarre’s "A Most Wanted Man," a spy thriller, and Sarah Vowell’s "The Wordy Shipmates," which explores the Puritans’ journey to the new world.
  I’m thinking about picking up "Grace" by Richard Paul Evans. Check out the publisher’s synopsis:
  "She was my first kiss. My first love. She was a little match girl who could see the future in the flame of a candle. She was a runaway who taught me more about life than anyone has before or since. And when she was gone my innocence left with her.
  As I begin to write, a part of me feels as if I am awakening something best left dead and buried, or at least buried. We can bury the past, but it never really dies. The experience of that winter has grown on my soul like ivy climbing the outside of a home, growing until it begins to tear and tug at the brick and mortar.
  I pray I can still get the story right. My memory, like my eyesight, has waned with age. Still, there are things that become clearer to me as I grow older. This much I know: too many things were kept secret in those days. Things that never should have been hidden. And things that should have."
  Sounds right up my alley.
  Here’s a couple of other books hitting shelves this week: “In Country” by James S. Olsen; “Tried by War: Abraham Lincoln as Commander-in-Chief” by James M. McPherson; and “The Pirate King (Forgotten Realms: Transitions, Book 2)” by R.A. Salvatore.
