Book of the Month: We Begin at the End by Chris WhitakerSynopsis

“There are two kinds of families: the ones we are born into and the ones we create.”

Walk is a 40-something sheriff who never left the town where he grew up. Years earlier, his testimony sent his best friend, Vincent, to prison and he still hasn’t recovered. Now Vincent is getting out of prison and things feel awful.

Duchess is only thirteen and has to be the parent not only to her five-year-old brother, but her own mother as well. She does everything to keep her family in one piece, even if she has to endure endless bullying at school.

It doesn’t seem like these two have very much in common, but their lives will become entwined in more ways than one. Heartbreak, disappointment, and trouble lurk around every corner as Walk and Duchess navigate the next phases of their lives.
