Our May read is:
Summer Breeze by Thayer.
April's read was: The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History by Kolbert, we should be almost done with that one. It was a more laborious, intensive read, but very informative.
We will meet only once a month: for the summer. The first Tuesday of each month: June, July, August: and reconvene our every two week schedule in September: if interest is still for the group to continue.
Be thinking of a fall outing for all of us...We will discuss that in the first meeting in September.
Here is the Amazon blurb re: Summer Breeze:
Nancy Thayer is the queen of beach books.”—The Star-Ledger
In this captivating novel, New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer tells the wonderfully moving story of three women who forge a unique bond one sun-drenched summer on New England’s Dragonfly Lake.
Thirty-year-old Morgan O’Keefe put her science career on hold to raise her young son. Though Morgan loves many things about staying home with her child, she feels restless and ready for a change.
Struggling artist Natalie Reynolds, fed up with New York City’s hectic pace, moves to the Berkshires for a year to house-sit her aunt’s fabulous home on Dragonfly Lake, where a handsome neighbor becomes her unexpected rescuer.
After her mother breaks her leg, Bella Barnaby quits her job in Austin and returns home to help out her large, boisterous family. While an attractive architect has designs on her, Bella harbors long held secret dreams of her own.
Summer on Dragonfly Lake is ripe for romance, temptation, and self-discovery as the paths of these three women unexpectedly intertwine. Summer Breeze illustrates how friends, old and new, can offer comfort, infuriate, or even open one’s eyes to the astonishing possibilities of life.
