2018 Book Group News

Hello and welcome to the Book Group Page

If you are interested in reading and discussing books, please do come along to our book group. We meet every month and kind of take it in turns to choose the next book.

This month the book is He Said She Said by Erin Kelly.

The blurb on the back: In the summer of 1999 Kit and Laura travel to a festival in Cornwall to see a total eclipse of the sun. Kit is an eclipse chaser; Laura has never seen one before. Young and in love they are certain this will be the first of many they’ll share.

But in the hushed moments after the shadow passes, Laura interrupts a man and a woman. She knows she saw something terrible. The man denies it. It is her word against his.

The victim seems grateful. Months later, she turns up on their doorstep but as her gratitude takes a twisted turn, Laura begins to wonder – did she trust the wrong person?

Some excellent reviews:- “tremendously affecting, tremendously disturbing book. It has so many twists that to bring up the themes I felt most important feels like I am doing you a disservice by forewarning you of things you’ll want to discover for yourself”. “Gripping plot twists and a surprise ending with the book keeping you hooked throughout and desperate to know what will happen next.” And no bad ones.

And it has been one of Richard and Judy’s.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, then do come along to the De Beauvoir Arms at 8 o’clock on Tuesday, 26th June. Bring your dog. You are expected to have read the book!

At the end of the meeting we chose the next book and arrange the next meeting, so even if you cannot come along, you are more than welcome to send in suggestions for the next book.  We schedule our meetings so that we do not clash with any other WI group/meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you.
