This is our official April discussion, where we will be discussing the book that we democratically selected as a group. This time we are reading "By The Lake" by John McGahern. Please note that this was originally published under the title "That They May Face The Rising Sun" in Great Britain.

Here is a brief synopsis from
"Joe and Kate Ruttledge, have come to rural Ireland from London in search of a different life. In passages of beauty and truth, the drama of a year in their lives and those of the memorable characters that move about them unfolds through action, the rituals of work, religious observances and play. By the novel's close we feel that we have been introduced, with deceptive simplicity, to a complete representation of existence - an enclosed world has been transformed into an Everywhere."
