my friend, Maggie, and I created a new book club for those of us with
the time and desire to read each month. If you live in the Atlanta area
and are interested in joining, the North Atlanta Women’s Book Club is open to all women who like to read and discuss books! I really hope you’ll join us! Our October book club selection is Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell.
loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already
shaken by a tragic accident ten years ago, feels like she has lost
everything known and dear to her. But an unexpected and mysterious
bequest from Nell turns Cassandra’s life upside down and ends up
challenging everything she thought she knew about herself and her
family. Inheriting a book of dark and intriguing fairytales written by
Eliza Makepeace Rutherford – the Victorian authoress who disappeared
mysteriously in the early twentieth century – as well as a cliff-top
cottage on the other side of the world, Cassandra takes her courage in
both hands to follow in the footsteps of Nell, on a quest to find out
the truth about their history, their family and their past; little
knowing that in the process, she will also discover a new life for
herself.” I scored it a 4 out of 5 on Goodreads.
