Event: Afternoon Book Discussion

Thursday July 26, 2018
4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing Beach House for Rent by Mary Alice Monroe.

From Library Journal:  "/* Starred Review */ Despite pressure from her brother, Palmer, Cara Rutledge refuses to sell Primrose, the 85-year-old cottage on Isle of Palms, SC. Palmer does come up with a tenant for  the entire summer. Heather Wyatt is an accomplished illustrator with a commission to paint shorebirds for  postage stamps. She arrives at the house  with her three canaries and a well-hidden problem: she suffers from extreme social anxiety that often leads to panic attacks. While building a deck at Primrose, Bo Stanton senses Heather's shyness and is able to draw her out. They're making progress when Cara is dealt a tragic blow, losing the love of her life. She wants to return to the beach house  to heal, but Heather is unwilling to give it up. Instead, she offers Cara a solution that could help them both—why not share the beach house for  the rest of the summer? Monroe (The Beach House ) continues her series featuring women who return to Primrose for  comfort, healing, and strength. However, the books can stand alone. VERDICT Readers interested in environmental fiction highlighting endangered birds, turtles, and lands will delight in this latest novel featuring women who need the healing power of nature. Recommended for  fans of Dorothea Benton Frank and beach  fiction.—Lesa Holstine, Evansville Vanderburgh P.L., IN --Lesa Holstine (Reviewed 05/15/2017) (Library Journal, vol 142, issue 9, p70)beach house for rent

All are invited to join the discussion. This book group usually meets on the last Thursday of each month at 4:00. Copies of the book are available, in advance, at the library.
