Join Village Square Booksellers in Bellows Falls in welcoming New Hampshire author Bill Lockwood to discuss his new book, Megan of the Mists on Friday May 19 at 7PM for Bellows Falls 3rd Friday.

As she is drawn farther into rebel plots, she falls for a British soldier and is horrified to learn the IRA plans for him and his fellows to be blown up at their favorite bar—with a bomb she delivers and sets off.

When he meets Megan, who has been sent as a spy to scout out the bar he frequents, the two have an instant attraction. He hints at the possibility of marriage and a peaceful life elsewhere, an idea she is ready to consider.
