In Athena, Mississippi, librarian Charlie Harris is known
for his good natureâ€”and for his Maine coon cat Diesel that
he walks on a leash. Charlie returned to his hometown to
immerse himself in books, but taking the plunge into a
recent acquisition will have him in over his headâ€¦
Lucinda Beckwith Long, the mayor of Athena, has donated a
set of Civil War-era diaries to the archives of Athena
College. The books were recently discovered among the
personal effects of an ancestor of Mrs. Longâ€™s husband.
mayor would like Charlie to preserve and to substantiate
them as a part of the Long family legacyâ€”something that
could benefit her son, Beck, as he prepares to campaign
the state senate.
Beckâ€™s biggest rival is Jasper Singletary. His Southern
roots are as deep as Beckâ€™s, and their families have been
bitter enemies since the Civil War. Jasper claims the Long
clan has a history of underhanded behavior at the expense
the Singletarys. Heâ€™d like to get a look at the diaries in
an attempt to expose the Long familyâ€™s past sins.
a history professor at the college is also determined to
her hands on the books in a last-ditch bid for tenure. But
their interest suddenly turns deadlyâ€¦
Now Charlie is left with a catalog of questions. The
seem worth killing for, and one thing is certain: Charlie
will need to be careful, because the more he reads, the
closer he could be coming to his final chapterâ€¦
