our book club reads happy books!

Ummm Ummm Good!

on November 30, 2012

The Sunday after Thanksgiving we were thankful to get together for our monthly book club meeting!

Our book was “The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the book (those who had read it!), but we agreed that while it was very well written, it was a little long.

For me, it  brought back memories of “The Secret Garden”, one of my very favorite childhood novels, and one I have read many times. So it was a nice surprise to have the author of that novel, Frances Hodgson Burnett, pop up as a character in this novel.

We had a special treat at this meeting – Beth made us soup. No it wasn’t Morgy Broth like William made Nell (thank goodness – turns out that’s some kind of fish stew with Worcestershire sauce in it!). Instead it was a choice between carrot  (my choice – delicious!) and beef vegetable soup, along with yummy bread, fruit , cheese, and cake. What more could you want on a chilly November evening? A crackling fire, exciting news about twin grandbabies, and catching up with friends? Check, check, and check! Another successful, happy book club meeting. Thanks Beth!

Looking forward to our annual holiday get together next month!

    A sick day allowed me to finish this tapestry of a book. Kate Morton is a young author that I will be reading in the future. Thanks again to Beth for the beer bread, my fav, soup and bounty from her garden. Nothing like a U-Pick-It as a prebook club activity!
