Eager to cheer up her recently widowed gran, Cassie Fitzgerald, visiting from Canada, persuades Lissbeg Library to set up a Skype book club, linking readers on Ireland's Finfarran Peninsula with the US town of Resolve, home to generations of Finfarran emigrants. But when the club decides to read a detective novel, old conflicts on both sides of the ocean are exposed and hidden love affairs come to light. As secrets emerge, Cassie fears she may have done more harm than good. Will the truths she uncovers about her granny Pat's marriage affect her own hopes of finding love? Is Pat, who's still struggling with the death of her husband, about to fall out with her oldest friend, Mary? Or could the book club itself hold the key to a triumphant transatlantic happy ending? The Transatlantic Book Club, a standalong novel, continues the stories of the residents of the Finfarran Peninsula, introducing readers to new characters with whom they will surely fall in love.  

 

R.E.A.D (Read; Engage; Advise; Discuss) Book Club meets on the second Saturday of the month (September thru May) at 9:00 a.m. All are welcome.
