As a coincidence, another book, Call of the Outback, the autobiography of Ernestine Hill was read and enjoyed by one of our group. Heather purchased Book of Joy a discussion between Desmond Tutu and the Deli Lama. The Beekeepers Secret was not particularly enjoyed, but Billy Thorpe – Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll provided entertainment. The Extinction Club by Geoffrey Moore was gruesome and horrible, we will stay away from that one. Fay Weldon Letters to Alice provided comments on Literature – how to read and write well, the reader found it extremely useful and a good book. The Glassblower of Murano was set in Venice in 1681, and another book along the same creative lines was The Potters House, set on an island in Greece.
Michael White wrote Soul Catcher a slave recruiter in the 1800s. A comment on The Dressmaker, our reader thought there was more in the book than the film. Author Elizabeth Strout is being revisited and No Time for Goodbye by Linwood Barclay. The Dandelion Years by Erica James was another of those books that could not be put down. I haven’t mentioned all the books read as we would take up the whole page, but it is obvious that a lot of reading is done by this U3A Group. See you all on July 4.
