BOOK CLUB

Would you be interested in joining a book club?

Book clubs are a wonderful way to share your insights, opinions, and love of the written word.

The Friends of the Library Book Club invite you to join them the 3rd Wednesday of every other month for an informal review of selected books.  The group chooses an array of popular, literary, and intellectual titles along with notable authors for their discussions.  If you would like to be a part of this group the next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 20th  at 1:00 p.m. in the lower level of the library.

The book for discussion is Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory.

Three Sisters, Three Queens (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels) by [Gregory, Philippa]

 

As sisters they share an everlasting bond; As queens they can break each other’s hearts.

“There is only one bond that I trust: between a woman and her sisters. We never take our eyes off each other. In love and in rivalry, we always think of each other.”

When Katherine of Aragón is brought to the Tudor court as a young bride, the oldest princess, Margaret, takes her measure. With one look, each knows the other for a rival, an ally, a pawn, destined—with Margaret’s younger sister Mary—to a sisterhood unique in all the world. The three sisters will become the queens of England, Scotland, and France.

United by family loyalties and affections, the three queens find themselves set against each other. Katherine commands an army against Margaret and kills her husband James IV of Scotland. But Margaret’s boy becomes heir to the Tudor throne when Katherine loses her son. Mary steals the widowed Margaret’s proposed husband, but when Mary is widowed it is her secret marriage for love that is the envy of the others. As they experience betrayals, dangers, loss, and passion, the three sisters find that the only constant in their perilous lives is their special bond, more powerful than any man, even a king.
