Bill Loehfelm: Let the Devil Out: A Maureen Coughlin Novel

Tuesday, July 5th


It's been a brutal year for the rookie New Orleans cop Maureen Coughlin. Her first arrests, her first black eye, and, after a stinging brush with the corrupt heart of her adopted city, her first suspension. As she waits out the suspension, hoping to save her badge, Maureen finds increasingly dark and dangerous ways to pass the time. Justice, she tells herself, is being served. No need for the NOPD to know what she's doing.

Maureen believes getting back to the job she loves is worth any sacrifice, any risk, that it's the only thing she really wants. But wearing the badge again means stepping back into the crosshairs of ruthless people who want her out of the way and don't care who else gets caught in the crossfire.

This book is available in hardcover ($26.00).

Kerry Hamilton: Trials of the Earth: The True Story of a Pioneer Woman by Mary Mann Hamilton

Thursday, July 21st


Near the end of her life, Mary Mann Hamilton (1866-c.1936) was encouraged to record her experience as a female pioneer. The result is the only known first-hand account of a woman thrust into the center of taming the American South--surviving floods, tornadoes, and fires; facing bears, panthers, and snakes; all while caring for her children, several of whom didn't survive despite her efforts. The extreme hard work and tragedy she faced are eclipsed only by her strength and faith in her husband, a mysterious Englishman, and by her sense of adventure. Written in frank and expressive prose, and withheld for almost a lifetime,Trials of the Earth speaks to the heart of our ability to endure and will resonate with readers of history and fiction alike.

Trials of the Earth is nothing short of a revelation. Mary Mann Hamilton was indeed the living embodiment of female strength and determination during a time when women were so forgotten to history. What better book to cover during the International Year of the Woman.

This book is available in hardcover ($27.00).

Kerry Hamilton discusses and signs the book by Mary Mann Hamilton, his great-grandmother, Trials of the Earth: The True Story of a Pioneer Woman.
