Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips

Cover Art for Fierce Kingdom The zoo is starting to empty out at the end of the day.  Joan is there again with her four-year-old son trying to enjoy the end of a happy day while moving him along toward the exit. Then, a loud noise. Is it a car backfiring?  No, the horrible realization sets in that it’s gunfire. Now Joan and her son, Lincoln, are trapped like the animals in the zoo. Told in real time over the course of three hours, this is a riveting literary thriller. Fierce Kingdom is a fascinating exploration of motherhood: the intimacy, the tenderness and the depths that one will go to protect their young. What do we owe each other? And just what separates us from the animals? Click on the cover to place a hold.
