'Irish of FDL' history programs March 17

The exodus of famine-fleeing Irish in the mid-1800s brought a surge of Irish people to the Midwest and, eventually, central Wisconsin.

What happened to the daughter from Not Without My Daughter?

In the new book, My Name Is Mahtob by Mahtob Mahmoody, the daughter from the bestselling book and movie Not Without My Daughter tells about her life—what she remembers of her escape from Iran, developing lupus as a teen, her strong relationship with her mother, her feelings about her father, her ongoing fear that her father would come back into her life, and her Christian faith.

Perfect Touch by Elizabeth Lowell

If you like authors Sandra Brown and Nora Roberts, Elizabeth Lowell ranks right up to their caliber when it comes to romantic suspense. Her latest, Perfect Touch, blends just the right amount of action, mystery, suspense, and thrills. A former soldier turned rancher and a beautiful designer and art appraiser must race to stop a vicious killer, all while fighting their sizzling attraction for each other.

Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter by Kate Clifford Larson

Over the years, so much has been written about the Kennedy family but little information has been available about Rosemary, the intellectually disabled daughter of Rose Fitzgerald and Joseph P. Kennedy. Author Kate Clifford Larson used Rose Kennedy's diaries and correspondence, letters from Rosemary's teachers and doctors, and exclusive family interviews to bring Rosemary's story to life in Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter, a profoundly revealing family story.

When it’s Right by Jennifer Ryan

Don't let the picture of the hunky cowboy on the cover fool you. When it's Right by Jennifer Ryan has a storyline with real substance. There is romance, of course, but the story line touches on serious subjects like domestic abuse, addiction to drugs and the effects it has on children who live through it. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a story where the underdog finally gets all that they deserve.
