My first choice today is The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club – isn’t that a fabulous title? I thought that I would enjoy this one since it featured a book club and I was right. Sophie Green explores the lives of the five members of the Book Club who live in a remote part of Australia in the 1970s. I loved reading about the different lives of all the women who felt like friends by the time I finished the book. Sophie Green writes beautifully about the challenges they face, the joys they experience and the support they give each other through their friendship.

The Trick to Time is a beautifully written story about a young Irish girl who moves to Britain in the 1970s. After a tragedy tears her family apart, we meet Mona again in her 60s and learn about the significant events in her life. It is full of wonderful, memorable characters and is a beautifully written poignant novel about love, loss and hope. Read my review here: The Trick to Time
