A handful of Willie’s Women met this month for a fun and lively discussion. The result was a nice variety of recommendations for our readers.
BERTHA-ROSE gives Mary Lawson’s A Town Called Solace (first recommended by our Jenny) four stars and has read the ebook version as well as listened to the audiobook. Bertha-Rose is currently reading Five Little Indians by Canadian author Michelle Good, which won a number of awards including the Giller Prize. Although she’s only about a third of the way through this book, Bertha-Rose gives it four stars.
Later in the discussion, Bertha-Rose shared with us the journal in which she records the books she’s read; Bibliophile Reader’s Journal by Jane Mount.
JENNY gives Graham Norton’s Home Stretch four stars.
BERNADETTE gave Hoda Kotb’s This Just Speaks to Me five stars although she hadn’t finished it yet. She read some quotes from the book such a s”we rise by lifting others.” Later, Bernadette shared a photobook hobby of hers. She gets these printed from Snapfish and really enjoys saving family photos in these bound books.
PENI JO: Kristin Hannah’s The Four Winds is reminiscent of The Grapes of Wrath about Depression Era
suffering. Really well-written. Four stars.
The next book discussion is July 12 at 3pm Eastern on Zoom. Non-RHS members are invited to attend one book discussion, so please consider joining us next month!
