Watermark's Book of the Week is The Wicked Boy by Kate Summerscale.
Kate Summerscale is part Sherlock Holmes and part Arthur Conan Doyle, if you’ll allow something of a mixed-species comparison. Like Holmes, she is a brilliant detective, one whose genius is to sift through Victorian-era cases where the trail has, of course, long ago gone cold. Like Conan Doyle, Summerscale captures you with the first sentence and plunges you directly into a fully-realized world.

The Children's Book of the Week this week is Clarina Nichols by Diane Eickhoff.
No one represents the early struggle for women's voting rights better than Clarina Howard Nichols (1810–1885), the Vermont newspaper publisher whose speeches made a powerful case for equality.
