For our meeting on 9 January 2014, we'll be reading Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty.
"Yvonne Carmichael has worked hard to achieve the life she always
wanted: a high-flying career in genetics, a beautiful home, a good
relationship with her husband and their two grown-up children.
one day she meets a stranger at the Houses of Parliament and, on
impulse, begins a passionate affair with him - a decision that will put
everything she values at risk.
At first she believes she
can keep the relationship separate from the rest of her life, but she
can't control what happens next. All of her careful plans spiral into
greater deceit and, eventually, a life-changing act of violence.
Apple Tree Yard is
a psychological thriller about one woman's adultery and an insightful
examination of the values we live by and the choices we make, from an
acclaimed writer at the height of her powers."
Have a very Happy Christmas and see you in the New Year!
