Synopsis of Allison Leotta’s book:
On the very night she gets engaged to the man she loves, sex-crimes prosecutor Anna Curtis’ professional life takes a shocking turn that threatens everything she holds dear.
Synopsis of Teresa Irish’s book:
On May 24, 2006, one month and one day after her dad’s death, Teresa Irish raised the lid on the Army trunk that had resided in the family home her entire life. There, row after row, were her dad’s nearly 1,000 handwritten letters from WWII, carefully tucked away and visited only by him over the course of six decades.
Synopsis of Monica Wood’s book:
Mexico, Maine, 1963: The Wood family is much like its close, Catholic, immigrant neighbors, all dependent on the fathers’ wages from the Oxford Paper Company. But when Dad suddenly dies on his way to work, Mum and the four deeply-connected Wood girls are set adrift.
