For the month of September we are going local and reading a book by an author just a few towns over. We've heard excellent reviews and would love to have a read. It's "The Call" by Yannick Murphy.
The daily rhythm of a veterinarian’s family in rural New England is shaken when a hunting accident leaves their eldest son in a coma. With the lives of his loved ones unhinged, the veterinarian struggles to maintain stability while searching for the man responsible. But in the midst of their great trial an unexpected visitor arrives, requesting a favor that will have profound consequences—testing a loving father’s patience, humor, and resolve and forcing husband and wife to come to terms with what “family” truly means.
The Call is a gift from one of the most talented and extraordinary voices in contemporary fiction—a unique and heartfelt portrait of a family, poignant and rich in humor and imagination.
We hope everyone has had a smashing summer and beginning to settle into their new fall schedules. We'd love to have you out to our literary club meet-up or if you follow us from afar, send us a question or thought and we'll discuss it at our get together on Thursday September 27th.
