From the bestselling author of The Piano Maker comes a stunning, profoundly moving story about motherhood, grief, marriage, and friendship. For fans of M. L. Stedman's The Light Between Oceans. Margaret Bradley is the most senior associate at a prestigious law firm, and she is on track to make partner. It is the 1970s; her climb up the career ladder in this male-dominated profession has been difficult, but with hard work she has made herself one of the best in it. She is dedicated to her work and is happily married until one day her entire world is shattered by the sudden death of her son Andrew, a military pilot. Now, Margaret lives with a heavy, all-encompassing sense of loss and regret that is pushing her further and further away from the person she once knew herself to be, and from her husband, Jack, a successful geologist and a loving and loyal partner. Consumed by her sorrows Margaret is drawn back to the family summer home in Sweetbarry, a small town off the coast of the North Atlantic, where she spent much of her childhood. Her lifelong best friend, Aileen, is close by. When Aileen's adult son, Danny, is questioned by local police in connection with a violent crime that shocks the community, Margaret provides legal and moral support. And it is while doing so that an opportunity presents itself for her to confront her sorrow. She sees "a door opening. A way forward," and she boldly reaches out with an act of courage and humility that has profound consequences. Set against the backdrops of the rugged Atlantic coast, Toronto, and Paris, The Hour of the Fox is emotionally resonant, atmospheric, and unforgettable in its depiction of motherhood and loss.

A Dying Man’s Plea By: Connor C. Quantrell This literary communication entitled A Dying Man’s Plea, written by Connor C. Quantrell, represents a form of life the author himself experienced while growing up in the Southside of Chicago with his parents in the 1960s and ’70s. One of the book’s characters, named Simon Graves, is an only child who, at the age of ten, began taking on more responsibility to help his parents out financially. He takes on whatever type of work that he could find. After finding his mother passed out in a diabetic coma, young Simon finds more work to help provide for his family. Simon begins working for a man named Canine, who acts as his connection to the world of organized crime. As Simon grows older, his involvement with organized crime grows as well. In a poor society, illegal drugs were an integral or necessary hallucinogenic and in plentiful supply, that worked to deceive or alter one’s actual power of movement. It also influenced the thinking of one’s otherwise contemptible, destitute reality. The general consensus held by most of the poor or unfortunate having little or no means to support themselves was to put complete trust and confidence in God, holding the unquestionable belief that through such faith, God will allow them to triumph from such unearthly poverty. What makes the story all the more interesting and relevant, and what the reader will get by reading A Dying Man’s Plea, is the ability to identify with the struggles of the characters in the story. They relate to the indigenous lifestyles of those that migrate and are born into a drug-filled society of impoverishment under the primitive or savage conditions a city culture manifests and teaches, where there are but a few outlets to a better, more desirable way of living. Though the book centers around actual events, the characters named in the book have been changed to protect the innocence and integrity of individuals the author grew up with.
