This month book is: The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy by Rachel Joyce
When Queenie Hennessy discovers that Harold Fry is walking the length of England to save her, and all she has to do is wait, she is shocked. Her note had explained she was dying. How can she wait?
A new volunteer at the hospice suggests that Queenie should write again; only this time she must tell Harold everything. In confessing to secrets she has hidden for twenty years, she will find atonement for the past. As the volunteer points out, 'Even though you've done your travelling, you're starting a new journey too.'
Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong. It was the beginning.
We are a group of diverse people who love to read. We meet once a month on the third Tuesday & Wednesday. We have some great discussions, a few laughs and encourage making new friends.
Each month we read a new book, which we decide through a group poll. The poll is posted on the meetup site under the "More" tab, then just click on "polls" and vote. We have a variety of books to choose from and try to focus on uplifting books.
The cost is $6 and it includes $5 towards a pot of tea, a cup of coffee or a soda and covers the cost of rental for the location, as well $1 to cover the meetup group administration costs.
The things to consider while reading, for discussion at the next meeting can be found under this link: Things to consider
