READ TREE

 



Join the HSC leisure book club, Relax and Read, which is a complement to Read and Lead! 

Relax and Read is sponsored by the Robert M. Bird Society, with Library faculty facilitating the book club.

Book Exchange

In 2015 BHSL Staff created a Relax and Read Book Exchange on the 4th floor of the Library in the Recreational Reading area.  Turn to your left once you exit the elevator.  If you see a book in the exchange you'd like to read take it and if you have a book you're finished with leave it, it's that simple.  

Enjoy!

BOOK FOR SPRING 2020

The Silent Patient


Book Summary


Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.

Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.

Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him...
