April Meeting

My Name Is Lucy BartonDue to our last book club meeting being held at the end of February, we decided our next meeting would be on Fri 8 April. We discussed  My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout.

Jacket Synopsis:
A mother comes to visit her daughter in hospital after having not seen her in many years. Her unexpected visit forces Lucy to confront her past,uncovering long-buried memories of a profoundly impoverished childhood: and her present, as the facade of her new life in New York begins to crumble, awakening her to the reality of her faltering marriage and her unsteady journey towards becoming a writer.

From Lucy’s hospital bed, we are drawn ever more deeply into the emotional complexity of family life, the inescapable power of the past, and the memories – however painful – that bind a family together. My Name Is Lucy Barton is a tender expression of the the meaning of familial love from one of America’s finest writers.
