Thunder and Rain by Charles Martin is the story of third generation Texas Ranger Tyler Steele. Tyler is the last of a dying breed- a modern day cowboy living in a world that doesn’t quite understand his personal sense of right and wrong and instinct to defend those who can’t defend themselves. As he tries to raise his son alone and rebuild his life, Tyler becomes involved in the life of a woman and her daughter who are on the run from a desperate situation.
New DVD releases include Moneyball, Contagion, In Time, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Whistleblower.
We look forward to seeing everyone soon at the library. And don’t forget our children’s Summer Reading Program, going on now through the end of the month.
