This Month’s Book: The Story Of Beautiful Girl By Rachel Simon

Filed under: The Story of Beautful Girl,What is next?? — susanbright @ 8:31 pm

“Hide her” were the last two words Martha heard the girl say.

Martha knew nothing about the white girl or the young black man she was with. She had only laid eyes on them a short time earlier when they appeared on her front porch. They were soaking wet and clearly running from something. Martha couldn’t imagine why she had even let them in. There was something not quite right about them and they had a new-born baby with them. She offered them dry clothing and was planning to give them something to eat. That was before the pounding on the front door.  Before the young man escaped out the window. Before she watched as the young girl was shoved in the car, as the baby slept peacefully upstairs in Martha’s attic.

And that was all within the first couple of pages! Please join us in reading The Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon, the author of Riding The Bus With My Sister.
