Bookbites: Four books to keep you captivated this summer


Kill the dragon
by William McGinnis

A police officer is brutally murdered during a “mostly peaceful” protest in Oakland. The town hall puts an end to any serious investigation. Ex-Navy SEAL Adam Weldon and his cop pal in British Columbia set off on the hunt for the killers only to find themselves hunted down, outmatched, and at risk of being killed at any moment.

As they fight for their lives, they discover that the murder is part of a relentless 40-year “unrestricted war” assault on America by an implacable and seemingly all-powerful enemy – a sovereign state with vast resources determined to bring America to its knees and become the dominant power itself.

Can Adam and his team survive? To find out, dive headlong into this catchy, upbeat and heartbreaking Adam Weldon thriller from award-winning author William McGinnis.

The wrong type of woman
by Sarah McCraw Crow

A powerful exploration of what a woman can be when who she should be is no longer an option.

In the late 1970s, Oliver Desmarais dropped dead while hanging Christmas lights. In the following year, his widow, Virginia, struggled to find her place on the campus of the elite Clarendon College where Oliver was a professor. While Virginia had always shared her husband’s prejudice against the four outspoken, never-married women on the faculty, she now finds herself dependent on them.

Soon, however, reports of violent protests across the country reach campus, stoking tensions. As the authorities attempt to snuff out “radical elements,” Virginia must decide if she’s willing to put herself and her family in danger for a cause that has never felt like hers.

From the flood
by Suzanne Jones

The true story of a devastating flood that destroys the home of six-year-old Suzie Jones and challenges everything she thought she knew about home, family and God.

It’s the summer of 1972, when six-year-old Suzie Jones and her siblings are whisked away from their home in the middle of the night, never to return. Hurricane Agnes triggered a devastating flood that destroyed the family home and business. Suzie and her family then embark on a grueling four-year journey to rebuild their lives.

This story of loss, love, and discovery is sometimes hilarious, sometimes deeply poignant, and full of 1970s nostalgia. The book teaches us that even the most difficult life circumstances bring unexpected gifts.

Freedom
by Dyanna Morrisson

“Liberty” is a must read for any American concerned about the senseless proliferation of gun violence and mass shootings in the United States!

Few issues deserve as much debate in the 21st century as Second Amendment rights and gun control versus gun rights. “Liberty,” the second play in this trilogy, shines a light on Second Amendment abuses/protections, with our Founding Fathers witnessing the National Rifle Association President’s hypothetical trial through a one-way window in the courtroom .
