Brighton

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2238761&fc=US&cjsku=2238761...
An extraordinary thriller—gripping, haunting, and marvelously told—about two friends growing up in a rapidly changing Boston, who must face the sins of their past in the midst of a series of brutal murders. “You came back here to bury your past. . . . Thing is, you gotta kill it first.” Kevin Pearce—baseball star, honor student, the pride of Brighton—was fifteen when he left town in the back of his uncle’s cab. He and his buddy Bobby Scales had just committed heinous violence for what they thought were the best of reasons. Kevin didn’t want a pass, but he was getting it anyway. Bobby would stay and face the music; Kevin’s future would remain bright as ever. At least that was the way things were supposed to work, except in Brighton things never work the way they’re supposed to. Twenty-six years later, Kevin is a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist for the Boston Globe. He’s never been back to his old block, having avoided his family and, especially, Bobby Scales. Then he learns his old friend is the prime suspect in a string of local murders. Suddenly, Kevin’s headed home—to protect a friend and the secret they share. To report this story to the end and protect those he loves, he must face not only an elusive, slippery killer, but his own corrupted conscience. A powerhouse of a thriller, Brighton is a riveting and elegiac exploration of promises broken, debts owed, and old wrongs made right . . . no matter what the cost.

History of St. John's, Brighton

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=138605835&fc=GB&cjsku=138605835...
Over its 143-year history, St. John's has been a remarkable and enduring part of Brighton's educational landscape.This book charts the way in which Sister Jane Borradaile, its tireless and resourceful foundress, raised money to build a home for the care of less-fortunate children in Victorian England. They were predominantly victims of deprivation in the East End, who went to St. John's to convalesce. Also taken in were orphan girls who were trained for domestic service. The home adapted itself to the needs of a different world in 1957 by becoming a residential school for children with special needs. It has since extended its site and its age range to become a nationally acknowledged centre for those aged five to 25 with autism and other related conditions. The story of St. John's is interspersed with many contemporary photographs and with personal accounts from young people who went there to convalesce in the middle of the last century. Feature articles help to place it in the context of the wider world. The book makes clear that the level of care extended to young people has remained constant throughout the 100 years since the death of Sister Jane.
