Sometimes history is right before our eyes, or under our feet. Learn why at our December 4th Breakfast with the Authors event featuring three Cape Cod authors.  First, you’ll hear from nonfiction author Theresa Barbo why one of the most famous rescues in Coast Guard history spent nearly fifty years beneath the waves of public notice. Discover which wild creature went from the 19th century soup pot to enjoying conservation protection under state law. In Hidden History of Cape Cod, Theresa Mitchell Barbo reveals perspectives and aspects of past centuries that may cause you to think about our shared past in a fresh light.



In The Trail, Paul Leroux is a serial killer who decides to escape to Canada on the Appalachian Trail, where thru-hikers use trail names and travel anonymously. His life gets complicated when Desert Storm veteran Karl Bergman, who is also trying to escape his own failure, becomes suspicious of Leroux and begins to pay careful attention to his every move. In this cat-and-mouse thriller, Ray Anderson depicts the dangerous mindset of both men as they struggle to fight their identities and confront their fears and inner turmoil.
swk front cover copyThe Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver features Ella and Maddy Lawton, identical twins who, while arguing, get into a tragic accident. Ella wakes up in the hospital surrounded by loved ones who believe she is Maddy. Feeling responsible for Maddy’s death and everyone’s grief, Ella makes a split-second decision to pretend to be Maddy. Soon, Ella realizes that Maddy’s life was full of secrets. Caught in a web of lies, Ella is faced with two options–confess her deception or live her sister’s life.
