We then meandered on through Room by Emma Donohue which was shown as a movie at Swanpool, The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks – a family saga, and The Lucky One a story of Iraq that was also made into a movie. Brooklyn was enjoyed as a film, but our reader enjoyed the book as well along with Ralph the story of a therapy dog at the RCH. Fiona McIntosh’s Perfume Secrets was not enjoyed as much as her previous book The Lavender Keeper. Catherine Cookson made an appearance with Desert Crop. I think we have all read Catherine over the years.
On listening to ABC radio in April, a new biography of Charlotte Bronte was mentioned. This gave rise to much discussion on the Bronte’s and their various skills in writing. All in all a very enjoyable afternoon.
See you all on the 7th June at 2.00pm at the Library.
