Hi everyone, I am scheduling our May Book Discussion a week earlier in May. Due to the Memorial Day weekend, I am scheduling our book discussion for the third weekend in May.
For May's discussion we will be reading "The House at Tyneford" by Natasha Solomons. The book description follows... It's the spring of 1938 and no longer safe to be a Jew in Vienna. Nineteen-year-old Elise Landau realizes her only means of escape is to advertise her services as a domestic servant in England. Fate brings her ad to the attention of Christopher Rivers, handsome scion of the aristocratic Rivers family and master of Tyneford. An anxious Elise arrives at Tyneford and immediately falls under its spell. When Christopher's young son, Kit, returns home, the two strike up an unlikely friendship that will changeTyneford--and Elise--forever"--
