June 6 - Indira's Daughters by Ron Destro

Struggling among the dichotomies of life in India during a Sikh rebellion, an American photographer in New Delhi is forced to choose between achieving her lifelong dream or saving her marriage to a once-idealistic reporter after confronting the dowry burning death of a close Indian friend. 


June 20 - Dangerous Instruments by Gina Montet

Laura, a young single mother, would do anything for her gifted son, Daniel. Scholarships to elite private schools are the golden ticket for her little genius, but when Daniel's brilliant mind becomes violent, she finds herself battling a broken system. Laura must confront a mother's darkest fears as she desperately races to help her son before he becomes the next horrifying headline. 


July 11 - The Virgin Queen Entertains Her Fool by Michael Hollinger

Adalia -- Virgin Queen of the Realm and Mother of Us All -- is dying, and must name her successor before it’s too late.  But she’d rather spend her final hours enjoying the company of her Fool, whose repertoire includes bloody French ballads, bawdy puppets and fart jokes.  Meanwhile, her nephew and niece have both assembled armies to storm the castle, each hoping to grab the crown as it falls.  Clearly, the clock is ticking -- what’s a woman to do?


July 18 - The Islanders by Carey Crim

Anna lives a small and quiet life on Beaver Island, Michigan. She has few friends and likes it that way. Her carefully controlled world is turned upside-down by the arrival of charming but secretive new neighbor Dutch. For different reasons, Dutch and Anna have each been thrown away by mainstream society. Can their connection survive the revelations that must inevitably come with true intimacy?
