Afternoon Book Discussion
4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing A Star for Mrs. Blake by April Smith.

A star for mrs blakeFrom Booklist: /*Starred Review*/ Smith, author of five thrillers starring FBI Special Agent Ana Grey, here offers a heartfelt glimpse into a little-known episode in U.S. history, the journey taken by mothers of U.S. soldiers fallen in WWI to visit their sons’ graves in Europe. Smith focuses on five mothers whose sons were buried at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in France. Their unofficial leader is Cora Blake, a single mother from Maine. She’s joined by an Irish maid, the wife of an immigrant Russian chicken farmer, a woman who’s been in and out of mental institutions since her son was killed, and a wealthy Boston socialite. Smith deftly spotlights moments along their sojourn, from the giggling fits brought on by the French delicacies they are served on board ship to the tears they shed when confronted by the stark white lines of marble stones where their sons’ remains now lie. Side plots revolve around an American journalist, badly disfigured in the war, who befriends Cora and publishes her story in a French newspaper, and the practice of racially segregating these mothers, even in their grief. Smith’s foray into historical fiction is captivating and enlightening. -- Donovan, Deborah (Reviewed 11-15-2013) (Booklist, vol 110, number 6, p26)

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.

Afternoon Book Discussion
4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing Sing Them Home by Stephanie Kallos.

From Publisher's Weekly: /*Starred Review*/ The Jones family would seem to have no luck. Aneira Hope Jones, already terminally ill, was swept away by a tornado in 1978. Now her husband has been felled by lightning, and his longtime mistress, Viney-best friend to his wife and virtually the stepmother of his three children-must rally alientated, overweight art scholar Larken; sex-obsessed Gaelen, a famed weatherman mostly because of his family history; and their slightly nutty little sister, Bonnie. The Jones siblings have had far from perfect lives. But they're also rooted in the warm and sensible little town of Emlyn, NE, proud of its Welsh heritage, and this fresh, invigorating novel fingers carefully through their pain. Kallos (Broken for You) doesn't rip her characters apart, just tenderly shows us their failings as they stumble, in a realistic and satisfying manner, toward better selves. Highly recommended. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 8/08.]—Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal --Barbara Hoffert (Reviewed September 1, 2008) (Library Journal, vol 133, issue 14, p118)Sing them home

Afternoon Book Discussion
4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand.

From Booklist: In this enjoyable comedy of manners, Hilderbrand returns to Nantucket, the setting of her 14 previous novels. Madeline, a best-selling author, is happily married to Trevor. Her best friend, Grace, is married to successful real-estate developer Eddie and lives in a much grander house with extensive grounds. Grace’s passion for gardening leads her to hire and carry on with Benton Coe, a hunky landscape architect. At the same time, Madeline is struggling to write the second novel in a two-book  deal. She can’t afford to return her advance, so, desperate to get over her writer’s block, she submits to her publisher the story of Grace’s affair, very thinly disguised. Eddie, meanwhile, resorts to questionable measures to shore up his precarious finances, while Madeline’s son, Brick, and Grace’s twin daughters, Allegra (the cool one) and Hope (the smart one), negotiate their own teen hell of envy and gossip. Hilderbrand does her usual expert job of evoking the Nantucket setting and portraying flawed but likable characters, and the value of family and friendship is affirmed at the end. -- Quinn, Mary Ellen (Reviewed 06-01-2015) (Booklist, vol 111, number 19, p45)The rumor

4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter.

From Library Journal: /* Starred Review */ Walter's newest book (after The Financial Lives of the Poets ) will have readers checking out Richard Burton movies and Cinque Terre guidebooks after marveling at his imagination and spot-on characters. It's 1962, and Dee Moray, an American starlet, has just fled the tumultuous Roman set of Cleopatra to hole up in a dilapidated hotel in an obscure Italian seaside village. Pasquale Tursi, the young proprietor of the Hotel Adequate View, is instantly smitten. Flash-forward 50 years. Claire, the ambitious yet practical young assistant to the once-legendary producer Michael Deane, is enduring another Wild Pitch Friday. A screenwriter desperate to sell his script ("Donner! An epic story of resiliency!") and an older Italian man bearing Deane's tattered business card both appear at Claire's door. Walter expertly traces the lines among these characters, using keen wit and snappy dialog to express the theme that "life was a glorious catastrophe." VERDICT The pop-culture references and wistful tone will please Nick Hornby fans and build Walter's following. Not to be missed. [See Prepub Alert, 12/19/11.]— Christine Perkins, Bellingham P.L., WA --Christine Perkins (Reviewed April 1, 2012) (Library Journal, vol 137, issue 06, p75)Beautiful ruins

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing The Painted Drum by Louise Erdrich.

From Booklist: /*Starred Review*/ Erdrich’s nine-volume cycle of novels revolving around an Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota has always carried within it a deep faith in the sacredness of the world and of the stories we tell one another. Her fiction looks fearlessly at the harshest experiences and finds within them both mystery and meaning. In her latest, former drug addict Faye Travers is an estate appraiser living in a small New Hampshire town. Faye, a thoroughly modern woman, has always regarded the Native American part of her background with a certain wariness. But her reserve crumbles when, upon being called to sell the possessions of the descendants of an Indian reservation agent, she finds a rare and valuable drum . She impulsively takes it home, where it wakes her at night with its haunting sounds. She tracks it back to the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota, discovering how it was bartered away for alcohol. The drum  was originally made by a grieving father in tribute to his young daughter, who was eaten by wolves. Once the drum  is given back to its rightful owner, it plays a crucial role in guiding three young children, left alone in a freezing house with no food, to safety. It also serves to connect Faye to her heritage and to her deepest emotions. All of the voices that weave in and out of this narrative are, by turns, mournful and funny, rueful and proud, and always, even within the bleakest of circumstances, full of hope. If, for Erdrich, the reservation is the place of original sin, it is also the place of final redemption. -- Joanne Wilkinson (BookList, 06-01-2005, p1711)The painted drum

4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing Bel Canto by Ann Patchett.

From Booklist: Readers curious about the emotional flow between hostages and their takers should cotton to this novel based on the 1996 Tupac Amaru takeover of the Japanese ambassadorial residence in Lima, Peru. It traces the hostages’ adjusting attitudes during the torpor of a months-long siege. Relief from their tedium takes the form of luscious world-class soprano Roxane Coss, who had been entertaining an international assortment of diplomats and businesspersons when the terrorists took the Peruvian vice president’s house. Everybody loves her, eventually--a Russian diplomat, the Japanese tycoon who paid for her performance, one of the teenage hostage-takers, and so on. The medium for all professions of admiration and love is polylingual Gen Watanabe. As Watanabe flits from conversation to conversation, Patchett develops the characters’ thoughts. Watanabe, for example, takes a shine to a child-soldier terrorist, Carmen, who comes to share the fate of an operatic earlier bearer of her name. Unhurriedly, even languorously, Patchett brings readers into the minds of the characters. (Reviewed June 1, 2001) -- Gilbert Taylorbel canto

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing The Ship of Brides by Jojo Moyes.

From Booklist: World War II has ended, and four Australian women are about to embark on the trip of  a lifetime. They are joined by 650 other women who will make the six-week trip to England aboard the HMS Victoria to be reunited with the men they married just prior to or during the war. These "war brides " are in a perilous position: leaving behind everyone and everything they know to start a new life in a new country, unsure whether they will be welcomed by their new in-laws and able to handle life married to men they barely know. The stress of  these concerns, coupled with life on a battleship full of  seamen, ensures the trip is an adventure for all—especially when secrets are revealed that could ruin reputations and the hint of  forbidden romance blossoms on board. VERDICT Moyes's (Me Before You; The Girl You Left Behind; One Plus One ) engrossing and well-written novel with romantic content is light but powerful. Through emotive language and suspense, the author effectively thrusts readers into the brides ' world of  anxiety, urgency, hope, and excitement. Highly recommended for historical romance readers.— Jennifer Harris, Southern New Hampshire Univ. Lib., Manchester --Jennifer Harris (Reviewed October 1, 2014) (Library Journal, vol 139, issue 16, p75)ship of brides

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing 2 a.m. at the Cat's Pajamas by Marie-Helene Bertino.

From Library Journal: /* Starred Review */ Almost ten years old, Madeleine Altimari is a self-described "poor motherless girl in old stockings." Often hungry but pragmatically compensating for her grieving father's neglect, she's a mouthy old soul who doesn't play nice with others. What Madeleine does do is live and breathe jazz. On Christmas Eve, she is determined, at all costs, to sing at a run-down Philadelphia jazz bar called the Cat's Pajamas. Her teacher Sarina Greene whose love for an old flame is unrequited (or so she thinks) is also drawn to the Cat's Pajamas. Lorca, the bar's owner, has just been informed that his bar will be shut down unless he comes up with an impossible sum of money to cover his countless citations and bring the place up to code. That these threads converge is a given. The surprise is in the purely original construction of an irresistible story that takes place in just 24 hours. VERDICT By the fourth sentence of the first page, readers will fall in love with debut author Bertino; delighted adoration of Madeleine will take another half page. This assured, moving, brilliantly funny tale of music, mourning, and off-kilter romance entrances with its extraordinarily inventive language. Be prepared for a quick reread of this novel to try to answer the question: How did Bertino do that? [See Prepub Alert, 2/3/14.]— Beth Andersen, formerly with Ann Arbor Dist. Lib., MI --Beth Andersen (Reviewed July 1, 2014) (Library Journal, vol 139, issue 12, p70)ship of brides
