North Hills Meeting - The Escape Artist by Diane Chamberlain

  • Feb 19, 2014 · 7:00 PM

Our February meeting is the week after Valentine's Day so let's celebrate by wearing red or pink. We'll be meeting at the IHOP in McCandless Crossing which is on McKnight Road but their address is the road that you turn onto from McKnight to access the plaza.  If you are coming from south on McKnight, you'll see DiBella's and know that's where you want to turn.  IHOP is in the same plaza.  The new Lowe's is also in McCandless Crossing.

Thanks to Aunt Janet for the book choices for February - we chose The Escape Artist by Diane Chamberlain.  Here's a bit about the book:

When Susanna Miller loses custody of her eleven-month-old son, Tyler, to her ex-husband and his new wife, she dyes her hair, changes her name and escapes from Boulder, Colorado, leaving behind everyone she knows, including Linc Sebastian, the man who has been her best friend since childhood and who knows her better than anyone. She lands in Annapolis, Maryland, alone, frightened, and always looking over her shoulder for someone who might recognize her. Just as she's beginning to feel safe in her new surroundings, she stumbles across information that could save the lives of many people . . . if she's willing to go to the police. But going to the authorities means revealing her identity, admitting her guilt, and worst of all, losing her son.
Equal parts family drama, love story, and thriller, The Escape Artist is the poignant story of a mother's unbreakable bond with her child and the resiliency of a love that transcends distance and time.

    So bummed---I have a nasty cold and I'm not great company--unless I get drive through and call in from my car! Feel extra awful since I have one of the library copies--Sorry Erin! One question: I wonder how the book would work if it were written now? I enjoyed it, and I miss everyone!

    I'm flu-ish, so I better stay home!

    I did read the book. I liked the way the author managed to make me feel a sense of compassion toward criminals...but the story line was a bit over-the-top. Overall, not bad. Hope to see you all next month!
