New in Large Print Fiction is “Fury at Three Forks,” a western by D.B. Newton. The book description reads “Will Clayborn never thought he’d ever be going back to the Anvil Ranch at Three Forks. Old Riley Adams, who owned the Anvil, had taken him in and treated him like a son. But then Riley had taken it into his head to run Will off his ranch for some cattle rustling he hadn’t done. When Will heard that Riley Adams was dying, he came back to a town that hated and feared him.”
New in Fiction is “Oh, Beautiful” by Jung Yun. Author Jung Yun was born in South Korea, but grew up in Fargo. The setting for this book is the Bakken oil area in western North Dakota. The description says “With spare and graceful prose, Jung Yun’s O Beautiful presents an immersive portrait of a community rife with tensions and competing interests, and one woman’s attempts to reconcile her anger with her love of a beautiful, but troubled land.”
