The Kate Brady Series


Join us this evening as one of our own local authors brings us a brand new historical fiction series. Winner of the Texas Association of Authors' Historical Fiction Award for her first book, The Hat, Hughes takes us on the partially autobiographical journey of her father, a bootlegger murdered by the mafia, and her own search for the truth. The novels begins in 1931 and, in flashback, introduces Kate Brady, who has just been fired from her Depression-era job working at Shapiro’s Bakery. She has little hope of a future until she meets the magnetic, wealthy Ben Gold, who immediately identifies her as his future wife. When a charged love affair sparks between Kate and Gold’s employee, Bobby Keane, their struggle to escape the dangerous Gold sets them on a life-or-death adventure through this thrilling trilogy!
