October Book Club - The House at Riverton

********************

October's Book Club will meet the first week in November because the date in October falls on Halloween night. Since many people will want to enjoy the holiday, we'll push it out one week! See you all then!

The House at Riverton by Kate Morton

Description:

Summer 1924

On the eve of a glittering society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again.

Winter 1999

Grace Bradley, ninety-eight, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken and old memories - long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace's mind - begin to sneak back through the cracks. A shocking secret threatens to emerge, something history has forgotten but Grace never could.

Set as the war-shattered Edwardian summer surrenders to the decadent twenties, The House at Riverton is a thrilling mystery and a compelling love story.

      Hi Rebecca, I sent a message through the contact button on here. Did you get it? I hadn't heard from you and I know one got lost a year or so back so I'm just making sure. There's no rush to answer it. If you didn't get one, let me know and I'll resend.

    The weather shows rain only here but with winter coming I guess it's a good idea to ask - how do we know if something's been canceled? I'm planning on coming - looking forward to hearing what people think about this book!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
