Our February meeting was busy and well attended. We reviewed The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce.It is the story of a man who learns that an old colleague has terminal cancer and by a chance remark he decides to walk the length of the country to give her something to look focus on. He does it all unthinkingly and on his journey finds himself.
It is an engaging book although some found it unrealistic and it should be read by its companion book,The Love Songs OMG Miss Queenie Hennessy. Queenie is the former colleague and has always loved Harold unbeknown to him. Read on.
Our next choice is a completely different offering to the members and is a factual story of a mysterious plane crash. It is Star Dust Falling by Jay Rayner and I for one look forward to reading it.
If it is too difficult to get hold of a copy, then try Sunrise By Victoria Hislop.
We have obtained tickets for Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard for Saturday matinee on 28 April at The Royal Exchange Manchester. They are good stall seats and cost £29 each which we need to give to Bron at our next meeting.
Next meeting Monday 5 March.
Happy reading until then.
