We will discuss two books next month, Overseas and Almost Paradise. This summer it's been hard to meet because everyone has so much going on. Sorry for the cancellations. For July's book: the author Susan Isaacs has been called the Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte of the modern era. This book gets rave reviews on Amazon - the first part might be a bit rough, but stick with it. It was suggested that this was an author that women should read because women authors are often slighted and not given the status of their male counterparts. It is long, but reads very fast!
In ALMOST PARADISE, the romance of Jane and Nicky begins before they were born, and the book takes us through their lifetimes. You will need several kleenex to get through the last few pages. The story of two people (Jane and Nicholas) who seem to belong in the real world, who seem to share problems with the majority of people, and yet...the characters that Susan Isaacs creates become something different, they become people that'll stick in your mind, people that you'll think about long after you close the book. An emotional, deep and at the same time down-to-earth and funny love story- what else can you ask for?
