BOOK OF THE MOMENTSpufford wondrously guides us through the everyday world of ‘what might have been’ for five young children if their lives hadn’t been cut short by a V-2 bomb landing on the local Woolworths killing 168 people in November 1944. Beautifully observed and thought provoking.
MISSED OPPORTUNITYIf your book club are in the mood to be drawn into a gripping page turner about entwined family secrets with plenty of ethical and moral dilemmas to consider for your monthly discussion, then ‘The Memory Keeper’s Daughter’ by Kim Edwards is just the ticket.
THE WILD CARD‘I Feel Bad About My Neck’ is an accessible selection of articles by the writer of 'Heartburn', Nora Ephron, that shines a light on women facing the tribulations of getting older covering maintenance, accepting change whilst yearning for yesteryears, coping with menopause and empty nesting.
BRIGHTENING UP JANUARY
Time to turn a new page with the Den's January 2021's three bright ideas. We have a story about entrapment and trying to find your own voice set in Brooklyn, a touching and amusing portrayal of the beloved 'Olive' entering her twilight years and a mother's quest to unravel an exquisite Irish lament.
The Den's resolution is to kick-start 2021 with books that will ignite and inspire your book club.
