A new month means a new Book Club novel.
With the bad weather, it does feel like Autumn has properly arrived.
I don’t usually need an excuse to curl up with a book but right now, a book, tea and a blanket feels like bliss.
This month, I have chosen a book by one of my favourite authors, Lisa Jewell. This month’s read is Then She Was Gone. The cover just feels very autumnal to me.
As usual, our book club is open to all, whether you’ve already read it or plan to pick it up for the first time and the best thing – you can take part from the comfort of that comfortable chair. This is one of the novels that’s been on my TBR list for a long time and so I can’t wait to get started. This book sounds compelling.
I’ve posted a question in the comments below to kick start the discussion. See you there.
About Then She Was Gone –
Ellie was her mother’s golden girl.
She had her whole life ahead of her.
And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone.
Ten years on, Laurel has never given up hope of finding Ellie. And then she meets a charming and charismatic stranger who sweeps her off her feet.
But what really takes her breath away is when she meets his nine-year-old daughter.
Because his daughter is the image of Ellie.
Now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back.
What really happened to Ellie? And who still has secrets to hide?
