Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

Andrea knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she's spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle; she knows she's never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she's never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don't we? But all that changes when a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a whole new side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she's been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one would ever find her. But now she's been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Moderated By Jeanmarie Kantor, Library HQ, as part of the Murder, They Wrote Book Discussion

The books are real; the discussion is virtual. Place a hold and pick up the selection at your local branch. Limited eBook availability.

Sessions will be conducted on Webex. Register below and you will be emailed information about how to join the discussion.
