Staff picks July 2023

Amee: Small Mercies by Dennis Lehane- Set in June 1974 when Boston desegregated public schools. Mary Pat Fennessy has a difficult life in the Southie neighborhood of Boston. Her only living child is missing and she suspects something terrible has occurred to prevent Jules from returning home. Her anger propels to ask questions and seek retribution. I could not put it down. Mary Pat is not the most lovable character but you cannot deny the love for her child.
