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!
