April Book Discussion

Willie’s Women had a lively book discussion this month with three new attendees, including a special guest of mine from across the pond, as they say!

WYNELLE , first-timer to the group, is quite a history buff and is re-reading books about Tudor England and Henry VIII. No particular titles were given.

ANDREA, our 2nd first-timer, is currently taking a Grief Following Trauma course and mentioned The Mystery of Spiritual Sensitivity: Your Practical Guide to Responding to Burdens You Feel from God’s Heart by Carol A. Brown.

JENNY , our guest, recently finished The Truth According to Us by Annie Barrows (which she suggested to me but I couldn’t get into). She’s currently reading The First Time Lauren Pailing Died by Alyson Rudd and also mentioned Life after Life by Kate Atkinson.

BERTHA -ROSE ‘s first recommendation was Alan Bennett’s The Uncommon Reader, a novella about Queen Elizabeth II. Her second recommendation was The Age of Creativity: Art, Memory, My Father, and Me by Emily Urquhart.

KARI rather than a book, Kari mentioned Atlantic Crossing, a PBS Masterpiece program about Norwegian Crown Princess Martha and her husband Prince Olav fleeing a Nazi invasion of their country.

VICTORIA unfortunately had to leave before recommending Bunco: A Comedy About The Drama Of Friendship by Robin Delnoce.

CHRISTINE Prolific Bookworm Christine is still reading Laurie R. King’s Russell and Holmes series. She also listened to the audio version of Tamai Kobayashi’s Prairie Ostrich. She also suggested Sky Lee’s Disappearing Moon Cafe, Kristin Hannah’s Fly Away: A Novel (Firefly Lane Book 2) from when Christine quoted, “Where there is life there is hope.” Lastly, Christine recommended The Museum of Us by Tara Wilson Redd and the Presidential Libraries Bucket Journal.

PENI JO Recently finished Clock Dance and Vinegar Girl. Anne Tyler was recommended to me by a dear friend in England. Just finished A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes.

Willie’s Book Discussion meets the 2nd Monday of each month on ZOOM at 3pm Eastern. if you’re not a Red Hatter, you may attend one book discussion if you wish. Next meeting is May 10.
