NFPL Book Club @ Main Library

We're reading: In the Bleak Midwinter by Julia Spencer-Fleming.
Heavy Snow...Icy Desires...Cold-Blooded Murder

Clare Fergusson, St. Alban's new priest, fits like a square peg in the conservative Episcopal parish at Millers Kill, New York. She is not just a "lady," she's a tough ex-Army chopper pilot, and nobody's fool. Then a newborn infant left at the church door brings her together with the town's police chief, Russ Van Alstyne, who's also ex-Army and a cynical good shepherd for the stray sheep of his hometown. Their search for the baby's mother quickly leads them into the secrets that shadow Millers Kill like the ever-present Adirondacks. What they discover is a world of trouble, an attraction to each other--and murder...

Join us for a discussion on Friday, December 15 @ 2:00pm.

Copies available at the circulation desk. Please register by calling 286-4881 or email nflref@nioga.org.
