New Book Club in a Bag Kit

Before you know kindness: a novel [kit] by Chris Bohjalian — On a balmy July night in New Hampshire a shot rings out, and a man falls to the ground, terribly wounded. The hurt man is Spencer McCullough an animal rights  advocate. The shot that hit him was fired– accidentally? – by his adolescent daughter Charlotte at what she thought was a deer in the distance. Bohjalian uses his trademark emotional heft to create a literate page-turner that is suspenseful, wryly funny, and humane.
