The Appointed Hour by Susanne Davis

Tuesday, May 8, 2018
6:00pm – 7:00pm

Hartford Campus
Bookstore

Join us in welcoming Susanne Davis to the Bookstore to discuss her book The Appointed Hour and to sign copies. "In these luminous interconnected stories, Susanne Davis crafts characters whose roots run deep into the land. A woman experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder finds her voice in communion with other women. A Mayflower descendant wrestles with the legacy of a controversial monument that honors his ancestor. A tattoo artist fights for the passionate dream of his art. A couple confronts the foundation of their marriage when faced with a terminal diagnosis. THE APPOINTED HOUR shines a compassionate light on a changing rural America, spanning generations and locations by exploring the emotions that accompany life's trials. The heart-wrenching challenges draw Davis's characters together in feelings of love, loss, hope, and community, united throughout history by the place they call home."
