A new suspense book is “Learning to Swim” by Sara J. Henry. When she witnesses a small child tumbling from a ferry into Lake Champlain Troy Chance dives in without thinking. She makes a bone-chilling swim to shore with a tiny passenger on her back. He speaks only French and acknowledges his name is Paul. Otherwise he remains mute. Troy waits for someone to come forth and claim him, but there is only a shocking and deadly silence. She finds that she is as fiercely determined to protect Paul as she is to find out what happened to him, but she will need skill and courage to keep them both safe.
