Edmond Library Book Bunch
Edmond's Book Bunch meets monthly to discuss important and memorable fiction. January's book is "This Bright River" by Patrick Somerville. Ben Hanson's aimless life has bottomed out after a series of bad decisions, but an unexpected offer from his father draws him home to Wisconsin. There, he finds his family fractured, still reeling from his cousin's mysterious death a decade earlier. Lauren Sheehan abandoned her career in medicine after a series of violent events abroad. Now she's back in the safest place she knows - Wisconsin -- hiding from a world that has only brought her heartache. As Lauren cautiously expands her horizons and Ben tries to unravel his family's dark secrets, their paths intersect. Could each be exactly what the other needs? Contact the library to reserve a copy.
