March 18th: Rebellion in the Heartland by Pat Connelly
A young lawyer is forced to question her beliefs and finds in the end she must decide whether to continue with what she knows will be the biggest case of her career or whether to walk away, turning her back on her clients, family, and religion. Newly revised.
April 8th: The Best Worst That Can Happen by Jean Koppen
