What We Are Reading Now

Book CoverLabor Day by Joyce Maynard

This book was recently on the big screen in an adaptation starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. I was surprised to see it in our collection, because I didn’t know it was originally a work of fiction. The story takes place over a long Labor Day weekend in a small New Hampshire town during a heat wave. A single mother and her twelve-year-old son bring home an escaped convict from the local Pricemart. The story that unfolds in those few days would forever change the course of their lives. Written with suspense, and such poetic insight, you are constantly wondering is this really happening? And what is going to happen when all is said and done?

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys just a really good love story.
