September Book Club

geminiThe September Adult Book Club will meet on Monday, September 14 at 7 pm.
We will be discussing Gemini by Carol Cassella.

Here is a summary of the book:

When an unidentified Jane Doe, the victim of a hit-and-run, arrives in Dr. Charlotte Reese’s intensive care unit, she brings with her mysteries—both medical and personal. As Charlotte cares for Jane, she becomes increasingly caught up in the questions of her patient’s identity and what led to her accident. Why has no one stepped forward to claim Jane? What will happen if she doesn’t wake up?

When Charlotte’s search for answers reveals links between Charlotte and her patient, the repercussions will forever change her life and her understanding of what love can make possible.

Copies of the book will be available behind the Main Desk.
If you have any questions, please call the library at 978-352-5728.
