Dorothy Van Soest - Just Mercy

What would you do if your child was murdered? What lengths would you go to for justice? 

These are the questions at the heart of Dorothy Van Soest’s stirring new novel JUST MERCY from Apprentice House.   

Bernadette Baker lives through every mother’s worst nightmare when her adopted sixteen-year-old daughter, Veronica, is brutally murdered by a deranged stranger. The shocking and random act of violence sets off a chain of events that causes Bernadette’s family to face unimaginable pain and question everything they hold dear.  

Ten years later Veronica’s killer, Raelynn Blackwell, is facing execution. Despite being united in their grief over Veronica, the Baker family is deeply divided about the death penalty. On one side is Veronica’s deeply spiritual and sensitive brother who believes that the death penalty is the last thing his baby sister would have wanted. On the opposite side is their tough-as-nails older sister who vehemently believes that death is the only way for justice to be served. In the center is Bernadette, who is deeply ambivalent and longs for a resolution that will help her family move forward. 

After Raelynn receives a last-minute stay of execution, a secret is revealed that changes everything and leads to an unlikely bond between Raelynn and Bernadette. JUST MERCY is a heart-wrenching and ultimately redemptive family drama of forgiveness, destiny, and the true nature of justice.

Lois Leveen - Juliet’s Nurse

Sep 24 2014 7:00 pm
Sep 24 2014 8:00 pm

An enthralling new telling of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet"--told from the perspective of Juliet's nurse.
In Verona, a city ravaged by plague and political rivalries, a mother mourning the death of her day-old infant enters the household of the powerful Cappelletti family to become the wet-nurse to their newborn baby. As she serves her beloved Juliet over the next fourteen years, the nurse learns the Cappellettis' darkest secrets. Those secrets--and the nurse's deep personal grief--erupt across five momentous days of love and loss that destroy a daughter, and a family.
By turns sensual, tragic, and comic, "Juliet's Nurse" gives voice to one of literature's most memorable and distinctive characters, a woman who was both insider and outsider among Verona's wealthy ruling class. Exploring the romance and intrigue of interwoven loyalties, rivalries, jealousies, and losses only hinted at in Shakespeare's play, this is a never-before-heard tale of the deepest love in Verona--the love between a grieving woman and the precious child of her heart.
In the tradition of Sarah Dunant, Philippa Gregory, and Geraldine Brooks, "Juliet's Nurse "is a rich prequel that reimagines the world's most cherished tale of love and loss, suffering and survival.
