Morning Book Discussion

Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart

Constance Kopp doesn’t quite fit the mold. She towers over most men, has no interest in marriage, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding.  One day a powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared

New members are always welcome. Please pick up your book at the Circulation Desk.
