"The Stolen Marriage" by Diane Chamberlain
I am delighted to say that everyone attending the meeting had read the book!
Our over all score was 8.75 out of 10.
We had a lengthy discussion about this book with mainly positive comments. Some comments were:
'Easy reading, it made you want to keep reading.'
'A good story.'
'A happy book but maybe a bit 'Mills and Boon'...'
'The ending seemed a little quick.'
'It was interesting to read about polio treatments and what a devastating illness it was prior to the vaccine.'
' She acquiesced too easily, too naive.'
'Loved the skeleton being used and that it had a happy ending.'
We had a general discussion about how the second world war had also affected the USA e.g.rationing and petrol coupons etc. It was interesting to think about how the times and opinions have changed so much over last 70 years.'
