BSG Book Guild - The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Sussex, England. A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn't thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she'd claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.

Rated 4.2 on Goodreads.

Paperback is a very reasonable £4 and can be found here, will be released on April 10th.

    Please note, there is a one drink minimum, per person, at Urban Coffee Company, which seems entirely reasonable as it's not a charity offering refuge to book nerds. :P

      I really like this venue and would be a good home for the book club.

    Hello everyone. Once the numbers for this Meetup started creeping up towards 10, I decided it would be better to book. Unfortunately, Cafe Blend couldn't accommodate a booking for Bank Holiday Monday but Urban Coffee Company could. So I have booked the upstairs area, for 2pm under BSG. Apologies for another Book Guild venue change and, I hope, the change doesn't affect anyone's ability to attend.
