In June, the Afternoon Book Discussion Group is meeting on Thursday, June 25 at 4:00 PM to discuss Neverhome by Laird Hunt.
A description from Gillian Spearce as found in the Novelist database: “I was to go and he was to stay,” says Constance Thompson, recounting her decision to disguise herself as a man, leave her husband behind to tend their Indiana farm, and enlist in the Union Army as “Ash Thompson.” Though Ash may be physically stronger than her spouse and more suited to military life, she finds the battlefield carnage tough to stomach. And that’s before she’s wounded in combat, captured by bounty hunters, imprisoned, and worse. Spare and compelling, Neverhome offers a different perspective on the American Civil War.”
Copies of the book are available at the Library.
