Write On, Door County is partnering with DCMM to present a monthly book club discussing works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that have the Great Lakes as their setting or subject matter. The group will meet on the first Thursday of every month, November through May, at 10:30 am at the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay. If you would like to participate in the Great Lakes/Great Books Club, call the museum at (920) 743-5958.
This selection for this month is The Bone House by Brian Freeman.
Hilary and Mark Bradley are trapped in a web of suspicion. Last year, accusations of a torrid affair with a student cost Mark his teaching job and made the young couple into outcasts in their remote island town off the Lake Michigan coast. Now another teenage girl is found dead on a deserted beach. . . and once again, Mark faces a hostile town convinced of his guilt.
Hilary is determined to prove that Mark is innocent, but she’s on a lonely, dangerous quest. Even when she discovers that the murdered girl was witness to a horrific crime years earlier, the police are certain she’s throwing up a smoke screen to protect her husband. Only a quirky detective named Cab Bolton seems willing to believe Hilary’s story.
