Book of Mercy
A town banning books.
One woman stands against the censors—and she can’t read. Can she win?
There’s more worth fighting for than you can ever imagine.
Antigone Brown has trouble reading road signs, keeps a stone in her pocket to help her remember right from left, and despairs of ever being a good mother to her unborn child. She runs a deer farm and vegetarian café in Mercy, North Carolina, where Irene Crump and the Mercy Study Club run the show.
But then Antigone takes in a homeless boy against her husband’s wishes and the Study Club forces her best friend, the school librarian, to remove “undesirable” books from the school’s collection. And soon Antigone finds herself challenging the controlling Irene and fighting for the very things that have made her life a misery—books. The dyslexic Antigone starts her own library and sets in motion a series of events destined to change Mercy forever.
If you like serious subjects (censorship) treated with a sprinkle of humor, you’ll love Book of Mercy.
