No matter the school or the decade, high school is about the struggle of finding yourself. After 12 days at a new school, the events that will change the life of Susannah Greenwood begin to take shape. Moved to a coed Quaker boarding school her sophomore year, Greenwood attempts to fit in but finds herself caught between trying to follow the Quaker ideals of challenging the system and standing up for those less fortunate while she battles an administration that flouts those same ideals.

Was it an accident or was it murder? Winemaker Lucie Montgomery is one of few people in her community who think the car accident of billionaire businessman and failed presidential candidate Jamison Vaughn is just that, an accident. Digging deeper into the background of Vaughn and his elite group of friends, Montgomery comes across a past murder case and her own connection to it. (November 2017)
