Sign-up begins for Book Discussion

Book Discussion: The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy

Open to district residents only.  Limit of 16 people.

WWII is churning and Vivienne de la Mare must decide whether to evacuate with her daughters from the isle of Guernsey to England, where her cold husband is stationed as a soldier. Her fateful decision to stay coincides with the German invasion and the resulting five-year occupation. Now she must raise her young daughters, care for her senile mother-in-law and determine whether the love she has been longing for is worth the huge risk of an affair with the kind German soldier living next door. Author Leroy has crafted an intriguing story of desire, strength and human entanglement played out as the beautiful Guernsey landscape and its stalwart people are devastated by war.  Sign-up begins Monday, January 14 at the adult reference desk.  You will receive a copy of the book and discussion questions at that time.
