Now at nearly 25, has she missed her chance at marriage?”

Shotgun Love Songs by Nickolas Butler (F BUT)

“Four men were all born and raised in the same Wisconsin town. Seamlessly woven into their patchwork is Beth, whose presence among them, then and now, fuels the kind of passion one comes to expect of love songs and rivalries. Now all four are home and desperately wish to see themselves as the unified tribe they remember, but are confronted with how things have, in fact, changed.”

Exit Unicorns by Cindy Brandner (F BRA Uni.1)

“Spring, 1968, Belfast. James Kirkpatrick has just lost his father under suspicious circumstances, Casey Riordan is released from prison after five years, and Pamela O’Flaherty has crossed an ocean and a lifetime of memories to find the man she fell in love with as a little girl. All three lives are on a collision course with each other against the backdrop of the burgeoning civil rights movement and a nation on the brink of revolution.”

A Sensible Arrangement by Tracie Peterson (F PET Lan.1)
