August Adult Book Discussion

The Okeene Public Library announces its August book selection, “The Little House”, a contemporary psychological thriller in the style of Ruth Rendell, from one of today’s most versatile and compelling storytellers Philippa Gregory. Discussion led by Patt Curtin will begin at 3:00 on Sunday August 25th in the meeting room of the Okeene Public Library.
“It was easy for Elizabeth. She married the man she loved, bore him two children and made a home for him which was the envy of their friends. It was harder for Ruth. She married Elizabeth’s son and then found that, somehow, she could never quite measure up! Isolation, deceit and betrayal fill the gaps between the two individual women and between their different worlds.”
In this complex thriller, Philippa Gregory deploys all her insight into what women want and what women fear, as Ruth confronts the shifting borders of her own sanity. Laying bare the comfortable conventions of rural England, this spine-tingling novel pulses with suspense until the whiplash double-twist of the denouement.
Books are available for checkout at the library Monday 2:00 to 5:30, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 10:00 to 12:00 and 2:00 to 5:30 and Friday 2:00 to 5:00. The discussion is open to the public and refreshments will be served.
