A favourite read by no less than three of our group was The Single Ladies of the Jacaranda Retirement Village by Joanna Nell. A Forgers Tale by Shaun Greenhalgh, a true story, was very readable. Laurie was pleased to obtain a talking book of the Black Snake which challenges the legend of Ned Kelly and was discussed at our last meeting. The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Stackhouse was also a pleaser. An interesting read was The Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks, the story of King David, as was the true story Esther by Jessica North, a Jewish woman transported on the First Fleet who became the servant, lover and then wife of First Lieutenant George Johnson and an influential woman in the colony. Well worth a read. An historical fiction novel The Nightingdale by Kristen Hannah, two sisters who resisted the German occupation of France.
The Women’s Weekly even rated a mention, an interesting story about Audrey Hepburn.
Another great reading month lies ahead. See you all in June.
