Hard-to-please group finds book they all like….

Secret Scripture book jacketAt my book group the other night we were discussing Sebastian Barry’s The Secret Scripture, when the realisation dawned that we had in our hands that rare thing: a book we had all enjoyed. Not the first ever you understand (The Book Thief and To Kill a Mocking Bird both got the seal of approval, and we all liked The Poisonwood Bible and The Secret Life of Bees) but in 8 years, such books have been few and far between. So I’m happy to recommend it as a book group read.

Contact us if your group would like to read it – and find a helpful reading guide on the Faber website.
