July 2020 - The Woman I Was Before
Our first social distancing book club was a success! It was so nice to see everyone, catch up, and hear what everyone has been up to during the COVID-19 lockdown. As I had suspected, a lot of reading was going on while everyone was staying safe at home!
This month's book, The Woman I Was Before, is a story about the things we hide from those closest to us and the terrible consequences that keeping those secrets can have. It’s hard to out down, and I hope you all enjoy it!
Here are the details:

Book: The Woman I Was Before by Kerry Fisher
A new home can be a happy ending. Or a fresh start. Or a hiding place...
Of all the emotions single mother Kate Jones feels as she walks into her brand new house on Parkview Road, hope is the most unexpected. She has changed her name and her daughter’s, and moved across the country to escape the single mistake that destroyed their lives.
Kate isn’t the only woman on the street starting afresh. Warm, whirlwind Gisela with her busy life and confident children, and sharp, composed Sally, with her spontaneous marriage and high-flying career, are the first new friends Kate has allowed herself in years. Whilst part of her envies their seemingly perfect lives, their friendship might help Kate to leave her guilt behind.
Until one day, everything changes. Kate is called to the scene of a devastating car accident, the consequences of which will test everything the women thought they knew about each other, and themselves.
Can Kate stop her own secrets from unravelling, or was her hope for a new life in vain?
If you can’t make a book club meeting that’s fine. There’s always next month!

I hope everyone stays well and heathy until our next meeting. Keep social distancing and washing those hands!
Remember…no entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting.
