Monthly Book Group

This year we meet on the FIRST Wednesday of each month at 10.30 am at Sunshine Library and from 12 noon, at The Granary Café, 2 Devonshire Rd. Sunshine for those who wish to join us for a coffee or a light lunch.

For the October 2023 session we will be reading:

A sweeping story of three generations of women, crossing from London to Ireland and back again, and the enduring effort to retrieve the secrets of the past. It’s London, 1960, and Aoife Kelly—once the sparkling object of young men’s affections—runs pubs with her brusque, barking husband, Cash.

An unforgettable novel of mothers and daughters, wives and muses, secrets and outright lies

‘Freud is a modern literary rarity: a born storyteller’ THE TIMES
