July Book Club - The Lifeboat

The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan

The Lifeboat


Grace Winter, 22, is both a newlywed and a widow. She is also on trial for her life.

In the summer of 1914, the elegant ocean liner carrying her and her husband Henry across the Atlantic suffers a mysterious explosion. Setting aside his own safety, Henry secures Grace a place in a lifeboat, which the survivors quickly realize is over capacity. For any to live, some must die.

As the castaways battle the elements, and each other, Grace recollects the unorthodox way she and Henry met, and the new life of privilege she thought she'd found. Will she pay any price to keep it?

The Lifeboat is a page-turning novel of hard choices and survival, narrated by a woman as unforgettable and complex as the events she describes.

Please remember, RSVP yes only if you plan to attend an event to allow us to plan accordingly. If you RSVP yes and change your mind on attending, you MUST provide at least 24 hours notice or you will be considered a "No Show". After 5 "No Shows", you will no longer be able to attend meetup events.

    I won't be there tonight, so please enjoy book club! I didn't get a chance to read the book, and have an important appointment that I can't miss. I've heard its not that great of a read from a few of you though. So please also pick some books for the next few months that should be MUCH better reads and either comment with your suggestions below, or email me your suggestions. We'll pick the next 3-4 books at the August book club (which sounds like it will be a much better read!)
