Hello hello!

So Cathy, I have to say--good choice! I realized today a cool thing about the book club is that we get the opportunity to read books we may never have chosen on our own, but we find surprisingly good! I think I've finally gotten all the characters straightened out and I love all the twists and turns. I'm about 175 pages in as of now and am getting ready to go read. Can't wait to find out what happens next. :)

Our First Book!!

Cathy chose our first book.  It is The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand. 


Greg and Tess MacAvoy are one of four prominent Nantucket couples who count each other as best friends. As pillars of their close-knit community, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers are important to their friends and neighbors, and especially to each other. But just before the beginning of another idyllic summer, Greg and Tess are killed when their boat capsizes during an anniversary sail. As the warm weather approaches and the island mourns their loss, nothing can prepare the MacAvoy's closest friends for what will be revealed.
Once again, Hilderbrand masterfully weaves an intense tale of love and loyalty set against the backdrop of endless summer island life.

So far I've really enjoyed reading it!  Lots of twists and turns- and I'm not even 100 pages in!  Our first Book Club meeting is November 12th and I'm excited to see how we all liked it!
