A gem of a read. A cast of wonderful characters in search of love and change set against the beauty of Florentine life and its rich art. Sarah Winman is an exquisite storyteller and ‘Still Live’ is beautifully crafted and totally absorbing.
This magical tale about a young Andalusian shepherd who dreams of finding treasure at the foot of the Egyptian pyramids. Modern classic by the Brazilian author, Paulo Coelho - an uplifting and philosophical book club novel.
Marching ahead with this month's 3 Bright Ideas:
Our book of the moment, 'Small Pleasures' by Clare Chambers is a bitter sweet novel with compassionate observations on life. Our Missed Opportunity is the compelling 1985 Booker Prize winner 'The Bone People' by Keri Hulme set in New Zealand. We stay in the Antipodes for our Wild Card choice, 'The Shepherd's Hut' by Tim Winton, about a young man’s survival in the saltlands of Western Australia.
