In a town on the brink and on a road with no mercy, a boy with a gun waits for the man who killed his mother, a detective finally confronts her troubled past, a good cop walks free after serving 13 years in prison and the unthinkable happens on the altar of an abandoned church.

The acclaimed author of Hourglass describes her staggering recent discovery that she is not biologically related to her father, tracing her efforts to uncover the truth from a half-century web of family secrets to reestablish her sense of identity

Book Club Kit of the Month We want to make life a little easier for your book club. We have prepared Book Club Kits: bags that contain 10 copies of the same book, possibly enough for all the members of your book club. Each kit also contains a laminated card of discussion questions to get you started.
The library currently has 20 book club kits.
This month we are highlighting We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter.
It is the spring of 1939 and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows closer. The talk around the family Seder table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships threatening Jews in their hometown of Radom, Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurcs will be flung to the far corners of the world, each desperately trying to navigate his or her own path to safety.
