September Book Club: "The Teeth of Souls"

Join us at 7:00 on September 25 at Birra-Vino's Pizzeria for dinner and discussion of The Teeth of Souls by Steve Yates. 

The Teeth of Souls via Google:
As the sequel to Morkan’s QuarryThe Teeth of the Souls tells the story of a marriage betrayed, a lifelong and secret love, and an Ozarks city riven by an Easter lynching.
The story begins just after the Civil War when Leighton Shea Morkan, son of Irish immigrants, marries Patricia Grünhaagen Weitzer, daughter of a German banking family. Yet he can’t let go of his childhood love and wartime confidante, the house hand and former slave, Judith. Both unions produce children, one a shrouded secret, and one the heir to the Morkan legacy: the limestone quarries of Springfield, Missouri, and the bloody past, what Judith calls “The Teeth of the Souls.”
