Book Discussion-N-Walk/RSVP's open June 30th/A Family Recipe
A Family Recipe: The feel-good read of 2018 by Veronica Henry (Goodreads Author) 4.3 · Rating details · 10 Ratings · 6 Reviews The brand-new feel-good story from bestseller Veronica Henry - a perfect mix of family, friends and delicious food. What's the secret ingredient to your happiness? Laura Griffin is preparing for an empty nest. The thought of Number 11 Lark Hill falling silent - a home usually bustling with noise, people and the fragrant smells of something cooking on the Aga - seems impossible. Laura hopes it will mean more time for herself, and more time with her husband, Dom. But when an exposed secret shakes their marriage, Laura suddenly feels as though her family is shrinking around her. Feeling lost, she turns to her greatest comfort: her grandmother's recipe box, a treasured collection dating back to the Second World War. Everyone has always adored Laura's jams and chutneys, piled their sandwiches high with her pickles . . . Inspired by a bit of the old Blitz spirit, Laura has an idea that gives her a fresh sense of purpose. Full of fierce determination, Laura starts carving her own path. But even the bravest woman needs the people who love her. And now, they need her in return . . . Post discussion we can go for a 60 minute walk out and back to Vista Brooke Park. Hope 2 C U THR:-) **No dogs please**

    What we're about

    This Meetup group is for people who don't hike in 'mission mode'. We don't drive through to the finish line, we stop and smell the roses. This is a great group for people who for health reasons need to take it a bit slower, or for people who want to stop and ID plants, or read trail signs, listen to birdsong, take photos, declaim poetry, contemplate color. Please send me your hike suggestions, and if you have knowledge of birds, herbology, trail reading, edible plants, meditation, whatever, I would be delighted to set up a hike for you to share what you know.

    One bit of advice: Always check the Meetup site the morning of the hike you've signed up for to see if there are last minute changes.
