Take part in OverDrive's Big Library Read for June 2019

Written by · Published May 23, 2019

From 17 June - 1 July, you can borrow A Dangerous Act of Kindness by LP Fergusson on OverDrive without a wait list and join in a worldwide discussion.

“What would you risk for a complete stranger?

“When widow Millie Sanger finds injured enemy pilot Lukas Schiller on her farm, the distant war is suddenly at her doorstep. Compassionate Millie knows he’ll be killed if discovered, and makes the dangerous decision to offer him shelter from the storm.

“On opposite sides of the inescapable conflict, the two strangers forge an unexpected and passionate bond. But as the snow thaws, the relentless fury of World War II forces them apart, leaving only the haunting memories of what they shared, and an understanding that their secret must never see light.

“As Millie’s dangerous act of kindness sets them on paths they never could have expected, those closest to them become their greatest threats, and the consequences of compassion prove deadly…”

As with physical library books, OverDrive titles’ availability is usually subject to demand from other users.
