No, not the name of new series characters, but the underlying theme in three new novels at the Nichols Library. Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout is about the folks Lucy Barton (“My Name is”) left behind in Allagsh, Illinois, from those who did her wrong to those who tried to lend a hand. “With assuredness, compassion and utmost grace, her characters remind us that in life anything is actually possible” (San Francisco Chronicle). In The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley by Hannah Tinti, a longtime criminal forswears life on the run and moves with his daughter to the Massachusetts shore. Despite violent confrontations, this is “a convincingly redemptive and celebratory novel” (Publishers Weekly). It Happens all the Time by Amy Hatvany is an edgy story about the impact of assault on a relationship.
