The Mitten Word Book Club

 Our next Book Club meeting is Wednesday, August 14th at 6:30pm. We've be discussing The Marsh King's Daughter by Karen Dionne.

Helena Pelletier has a loving husband, two beautiful daughters, and a business that fills her days. But she also has a secret: she is the product of an abduction. She has buried her past so soundly that even her loving husband doesn't know the truth. But now her father has killed two guards, escaped from prison, and disappeared into the marsh. The police begin a manhunt, but Helena knows they don't stand a chance--because only one person can track down the Marsh King: his daughter.

You can order a copy of The Marsh King's Daughter at The Mitten Word Bookshop.
