Seabrookers Are Reading…

We’ve had a tremendous response from our readers. Below is the first installment of what we hope will be a regular feature.  Let us hear about the books you’re reading.

The One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Gates
After his eleven-year-old son dies, guitarist Quinn Porter does yard work for an aged Lithuanian immigrant, Ona Vitkus, whom his son had often visited and comes to a resolution about his son’s death as Ona discusses his son’s capacity to listen and learn. (2016, 323 pgs; fiction)

Folly Beach by Dorothea Benton Frank
Returning to Folly Beach, her childhood home, newly widowed Cate Cooper, whose late husband’s financial exploits have left her homeless and broke, discovers that it is possible to go home again and discover the person she was meant to become. (2011, 358 pgs; fiction)

The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness
(Includes A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, and The Book of Life)
Deep in the stacks of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell. The story continues in the next two books. (2011, 579 pgs; fiction)

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson
Cussy Mary Carter is the last of her kind, her skin the color of a blue damselfly in these dusty hills. But that doesn’t mean she’s got nothing to offer. As a member of the Pack Horse Library Project, Cussy delivers books to the hill folk of Troublesome, hoping to spread learning in these desperate times. But not everyone is so keen on Cussy’s family or the Library Project, and the hardscrabble Kentuckians are quick to blame a Blue for any trouble in their small town. (2019, 308 pgs; fiction)

The Fever Tree by Jennifer McVeigh
South Africa, 1880. Frances Irvine, destitute in the wake of her father’s sudden death, is forced to abandon her life of wealth and privilege in London and emigrate to the Cape. In this remote and inhospitable land she becomes entangled with two very different men, leading her into the dark heart of the diamond mines. Torn between passion and integrity, she makes a choice that has devastating consequences. (2013, 425 pgs; fiction)
