Join the Big Library Read!
World’s Largest Digital Book Club and Eastern Shore Public Library Hunt for the Truth
Thrilling and suspenseful “The Quiet Girl” ebook now available for reading and discussion beginning Monday, June 28th!
Local book lovers can join thousands of readers around the world in reading a debut mystery/thriller eBook during the Big Library Read, the world’s largest digital book club. Through July 12, patrons of the Eastern Shore Public Library (ESPL) can borrow and read ebook copies of this summer’s selection, S.F. Kosa’s “The Quiet Girl,” with no waitlists or holds.
The Quiet Girl begins with struggling entrepreneur Alex’s arrival in Provincetown to patch things up with his new wife, Mina. He finds an empty wine glass in the sink, her wedding ring on the desk, and a string of questions in her wake. The police believe that Mina, a successful romance author, simply left, their marriage crumbling before it truly began. But what Alex finds in their empty cottage points him toward a different reality: Mina has always carried a secret. And now she’s disappeared. In his hunt for the truth, Alex comes across Layla, a young woman with information to share, who may hold the key to everything his wife has kept hidden. To find his missing wife, Alex must face what Layla has forgotten.

The Quiet Girl can be read on all major computers and devices through Libby or libbyapp.com, including iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets and Chromebook™.
