George and Sylvia Givens, a frustrated teacher and a game-for-anything wife and mother, opened Boonshire Books in 1976 in an old gas station on Boonsboro road. After clearing away the fumes and cobwebs and covering up the oil stains with remnant carpeting, they began a legacy that has since gone through many incarnations.

Our June Read-of-the-Month
The Marsh King’s Daughter by Karen Dionne
Helena has a loving husband, two beautiful daughters, and a business that fills her days. But she also has a secret: she is the product of an abduction. More than twenty years later, she has buried her past so soundly that even her husband doesn't know the truth. But now her father has escaped from prison and disappeared into the marsh. The police begin a manhunt, but Helena knows they don't stand a chance. Knows that only one person has the skills to find the survivalist the world calls the Marsh King--because only one person was ever trained by him: his daughter.
Now she risks everything to hunt down the dangerous man who shaped her past and threatens to steal her future.
