BOOK CLUB ONE SUPPORTS THE LIFEBOATS

June Meeting
At this morning's meeting Book Club 1 discussed the novel "The Nightingale" by Kirstin Hannah. The Nightingale tells the story of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstances, each embarking on her own dangerous path towards survival, love and freedom in war-torn France. It is a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.
It was by far the best book we have had for a long time. Everyone enjoyed it, harrowing as parts were it spoke of how women struggled with the Nazi occupation and how they endured. While the type-face chosen did not make this the easiest print to read, everyone agreed it would have been a far larger tome had the print been bigger. It was brilliantly researched and a very interesting novel. Everyone would absolutely love to read another book by this author, and we wondered how we had not come across her books before. A wonderful read and had to continue to the very end because it was so good.
We discussed the new authors that have been added to the Book Club selection from the Library and will make our choices perhaps at the next meeting in July. This month's book is by Victoria Hislop and it called "Cartes Postales from Greece".
