...While this is written well, with a believable story and distinctive characters, it actually caused arguments in the club....

Jules, a teacher, spends her spare time running a popular reading group at the local old folks home. The arrival of a new resident upsets her quiet routine, since she is sure he is an estranged relative she hasn’t seen since she was a child. Picking her way to a relationship will be difficult, especially since she isn’t sure she wants too…

While this is written well, with a believable story and distinctive characters, it actually caused arguments in the club.

It definitely provoked an emotional reaction from the club while reading, but while all agreed it was a good story, there were two very different interpretations, one positive, one negative. From one view it was a heartwarming story of mending fences in family. From another it was a tragedy of a woman unable to say no and trapped living out someone else’s wishes for her for the rest of her life. The truth may lie somewhere in between. The same interpretation switched Annie from wise, experienced, friend to a naive and sheltered accomplice to abuse.

What I will say is that it left no member unmoved and provoked some strong opinions, which is a sign of extremely good writing.

  • Grumpy Old Wizards
    Teen and young adult readers might enjoy it. It is an interesting example of the paranormal genre, with an original and unique world
  • FOSSILS: Viagra, snuff, and Rock n Roll
    A great concept and setup, but some issues with writing
  • Pineapple Lies
    Fans of cozy mystery or small town stories will love this book, and frankly so will anyone looking for something to lift the mood, a clean romance, or a comedy of errors crossed with farce.
