Join our Mystery Book Discussion Group, Once Upon a Crime as we discuss this new novel. Pick up a copy at the Highland Branch.

When Alice gets off a bus in the middle of a snowstorm in Delphi, NY, she is fleeing an abusive relationship and desperate to protect ten-year-old Oren. Though Alice is wary, Oren bonds nearly instantly with Mattie, a social worker in her fifties who lives in an enormous run-down house in the middle of the woods. Mattie is the person the hotline always calls when they need a late-night pickup. According to protocol Mattie should take Alice and Oren to a local shelter, but instead takes them to her house. Oren reminds her of her little brother, who died thirty years ago. As the snowstorm worsens around them, each woman's past will prove itself unburied, stirring up threats both within and without.

About the branch

The Highland Branch Library has long played an important role in downtown Highland. From its beginnings in rented storefronts to the Highland Memorial Library built in 1946 to its present location on Jewett and 4th Street, it has been an integral part of the community. The exterior of the library looks nearly as it did when it was first built in 1966. Although it is one of the oldest buildings in the library system, it's newly remodeled interior makes it one of the newest. The library still houses over 65,000 items, but now also features a large meeting room and children's program room, a study room, and WiFi, along with many public Internet computers. These features, along with the library's bright and inviting atmosphere and convenient location, make the Highland Branch Library a destination for the community and surrounding areas.
