We met on the 28 October to discuss The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. This is a slow but moving story of the unassuming hero, Herold Fry, who sets out to save his friend Queenie by walking from Devon to just about the Scottish border. His is a slow journey, but along the way the reader is led to reflections that make the novel an interesting, at the same time as the background to Harold’s story is revealed and captivates the reader.
Up for next months is Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. The meeting will be on the 25th November at 8:30pm.
For 16 December we have some Saki in store:
In January we will be reading a ‘funny’ book – I’m still on the lookout, if anyone would like to make a suggestion.
