Our April book Sarah Thornhill by Kate Grenville scored a reting of 6.5. The group did not like it nearly as much as The Secret River which  we had read earlier.  It was described by the group as a more simple story with not as much depth as The ssecret river.

The book for our meeting on May 7th is Friends like these by Wendy Harmer. The group expressed a desire to read a chick lit novel this year and as Wendy Harmer was the author to open The National Year of Reading at Wollongong I chose one of her novels. Friends like these is a story set in a wealthy Sydney girl’s school. Recently single Jo was the deputy headmistress of this school but she has abandoned her post because of a scandal caused by her power hungry, money hungry husband that has everybody talking. Jo retrains as a marriage celebrant and tries to move on. This book is the story of her and her friends and it poses the question – with friends like these, is she better off without them?   New members are always welcome to join our group. If you need a copy of the book ring us on Phone 4227 8133 or call into the library at 67-71 King St Warrawong ablove Plush sofas.
