  • rocky river readers

    Monday, JuLY 23

    7:00 pm, church parlor

    The book for discussion at our July 23rd meeting is Here and Gone by Haylen Beck.  This is a flawlessly crafter thriller---breathtakingly propulsive, relentlessly suspenseful, and shocking to the very last page --- about one woman’s fight against unimaginable evil to save everything that matters to her.


    Audra just wants to reach California.  She’s finally found the strength to flee her abusive husband and make a fresh start for her two children.  Taking back roads and not drawing attention, she has made it across the country. Then a local sheriff pulls her over in the middle of the Arizona desert.  He suddenly pulls a bag of drugs from her trunk that she has never seen before. 


    By the time he gets her to the station, her children are gone and the sheriff declares they never existed.  What is happening to her?  How can she find her children?


    Members of RR Readers are reminded we switched the titles we are reading between July and August.  We will read The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan for our August 27th meeting.


    We always welcome new readers! Please join us in the church parlor at 7pm on

    Monday, July 23rd whether you had a chance to read this month’s book or not.
