T he book that the group will be discussing at their meeting on June 4th at 2pm in the library is The earth hums in B flat by Mari Strachan. Little Gwenni Morgan is able to see what is going on in the little Welsh village that she lives in because she can fly in her sleep. As she flies she tries to make sense of what is happening to her family and her village, but her mother does not like it that she can fly. She thinks that people will see her as odd. But when Ifan Evans goes missing her talent is put to good use. She feels that it is her job to find him and as she searches for the truth a terrible secret is revealed. This is a book set in Wales in the 1950’s filled with wonderful characters. If you would like to join us for the discussion come to the library and ask for a copy or ring us on phone 42278133 .
Friends like these by Wendy Harmer, our May read, did not score well. Its rating was only 5. One person really liked it. They found it to be lively, beleivable and well written, but the others found it to be tedious and too long with too many coincidences.
