                                  Tues. October 27, 1:00-   Everything to Lose, by Andrew Gross


While driving along a suburban back road, Hilary Blum, who's just lost her job and whose deadbeat husband has left her alone to care for her son with Asperger's, witnesses a freakish accident. A car ahead of her careens down a hill and slams into a tree.  Stopping to help, she discovers the driver dead--and a satchel stuffed with a half a million dollars.  That money could prevent her family's ruin and keep her special needs son in school. In an instant, this honest, achieving woman who has always done the responsible thing makes a decision that puts her in the center of maelstrom of dark consequences and life-threatening recriminations--a terrifying scheme involving a twenty-year-old murder, an old woman whose life has been washed out to sea, and a powerful figure bent to keep the secret that can destroy him hidden.  With everything to lose, everything she loves, Hilary connects to a determined cop from Staten Island, reeling from the disaster of Sandy, to bring down an enemy who will stop at nothing to keep what that money was meant to silence, still buried. 



Evening Group:    Thurs. Oct.  29, 7:00pm

The book discussed next time will be:      Orphan Train, by Christina Baker Kline

"Close to aging out of the foster care system, Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer takes a community service position helping an elderly woman named Vivian clean out her home and discovers that they are more alike than different as she helps Vivian solve a mystery from her past."

  It is a great book for discussing, so order one from the MORE system and think about joining us to talk about what you liked or didn't like about it!   If you  prefer,  call the library at 684-3813 and we can order one for you.
