Join us as we discuss Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore on Thursday, February 21st.
"For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish. But then, after generations of vanishings, a strange boy appears in the gardens.
The boy is a mystery to Estrella, the Nomeolvides girl who finds him, and to her family, but he’s even more a mystery to himself; he knows nothing more about who he is or where he came from than his first name. As Estrella tries to help Fel piece together his unknown past, La Pradera leads them to secrets as dangerous as they are magical in this stunning exploration of love, loss, and family."
Join us February 20, 2019 as we discuss A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles!
When the Bolshevik tribunal deems Count Rostov an unrepentant aristocrat in 1922, he is sentenced to house arrest in an attic room within the Metropol- a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. While history unfolds across the street, Rostov must deal with the emotions of watching the world change outside his window.
Goodreads deems this novel "brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another."
