Afternoon book group with special guest Joy Rhoades on Wednesday 25th July, 1.30pm at St Andrews Church, SL9 7QE above the bookshop. You can purchase a copy of ‘The Woolgrower’s Companion’ £8.99 from the Chorleywood or Gerrards Cross Bookshops. There will be tea and cake served on arrival.
As this is a book group event it would be preferable for you to have read the book beforehand as you can then join in the discussion with the rest of the group and with Joy herself.
The novel we will be discussing is ‘The Woolgrower’s Companion’, set in 1945 Australia. Until now Kate Dowd has led a sheltered life on her family’s sprawling sheep station but, with her father’s health in decline, the management of the farm is increasingly falling to her.
Kate is rising to the challenge when the arrival of two Italian POW labourers disrupts everything – especially when Kate finds herself drawn to the enigmatic Luca Canali. Then she receives devastating news. The farm is near bankrupt and the bank is set to repossess. Given just eight weeks to pay the debt, Kate is now in a race to save everything she holds dear…
