Book Club

Our Book Club usually meet on Mondays in the Church Lounge at 10.30am to discuss the chosen book.

We meet next on 1st November. The chosen book is Eight Detectives by Alex Pavesi.  Email bookclub@bhpurc.org.uk for details if you would like to join us.

Everyone is welcome to this informal club which has been running for over 5 years with eight regular members. Books are mainly new, but we also have discussed some classics. We discuss what we thought of the chosen book and this often leads on to other topics. We are a mixed group of people, some from the Church, some from the local community who all enjoy reading and discussion.

If you'd like to purchase books please visit Easy Fundraising so that the church can get some commission without you paying anything different. 

 

The last book we read was:

‘Falling Angels’ by Tracy Chevalier

Although familiar with the variety of work from Tracy Chevalier this came as a pleasant surprise. 

It starts with orchestrated marital indiscretion but is so much more than this. A cemetery in North London in 1901. A meeting of Maude, a lonely only child, with two sisters Lavinia and Ivy May and a lasting friendship ensues. We follow their young lives and the lives of their parents, taking us through the ups and downs of the different relationships. Holloway prison also features in the story, where did that come from? 

This is an enthralling read, enjoyed by us all. The characters were so likeable, especially young Simon the grave digger.
