A look at what's happening at Willard

Good reads for a wintry month

Each month, the library's staff meet to discuss books we've been reading. Here are some of our favorites from February.

  • The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld
    • This book takes place before The Butterfly Girl, as readers are introduced to Naomi, a private investigator with the uncanny ability to find people. Naomi is enlisted to find a child who has been missing for three years.
  • Last Day by Luanne Rice
    • Beth and Kate are sisters on the run from a painful past when their mother was taken from their home. Years later, the sisters have coped with their tragedy as best they can, but then Beth is found murdered in her home. Kate and the detective who worked on her mother's case search for the truth behind both incidents.
  • Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende
    • Author of the best-seller, A Long Petal of the Sea, Allende tells the story of a Chilean orphan, Eliza, raised by a wealthy British spinster who searches for love and belonging amid the 1849 California Gold Rush.
  • Lock Every Door by Riley Sager
    • Jules Larsen takes a job at a high-profile Manhattan apartment, the Bartholomew, but things aren't as they seem. When Jules's coworker, Ingrid, tells her a bit of the Bartholomew's dark history, she suddenly goes missing, prompting Jules to dig deeper into the Bartholomew to rescue her friend before it's too late.
