Author Event: Christine Whitehead

Thursday, November 4th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

In her debut novel, Christine Whitehead introduces us to Archer Loh, Ivy League grad and Olympic rider. Carefully groomed to become a government assassin Archer instead chooses law school, her college sweetheart, and a quiet life in Connecticut, leaving her violent apprenticeship behind as her own little secret. When her only child is murdered and the killer goes free on a technicality, Archer ditches family, career, friends and horses to find justice. Brushing up on her lethal skills, and aided by a shadowy and well-heeled vigilante group, she tries to find meaning in her pain and a reason to keep taking another breath by implementing private retribution. At her lowest ebb, Connor McCall, Harvard-educated financial baron turned Wyoming sheep rancher, stumbles into her life, bringing with him his own demons. And everything changes.

In addition to being a gripping story, this book is, above all, about choices, second chances, and consequences. All are welcome to hear firsthand from the author about how she was able to draw upon her personal experiences to create this novel.

Christine M. Whitehead is a graduate of Smith College and the University of Connecticut Law School. She lives on a farm in the Hartford area and practices divorce law in Hartford.
