Exmoorjane's Avatar Cait was raving about a book recently - have you got that? Ditto Milla re The Outcast by Sadie Jones. Would they be good?

Pondside's Avatar I keep on suggesting The Birth House by Ami McKay - so I'll try again, as I think that it would stir some interesting conversation. Check it out here

Fennie's Avatar I can offer you 'The Eustace Diamonds' by Anthony Trollope.

Withy Brook's Avatar Could be time for a classic rather than a modern book, Fennie?

Westerwitch's Avatar And 5. Westerwitch always suggests Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett and no-one (once not even WW) votes for it.

Fennie's Avatar It's not really a classic - not like Trollope's Barchester or Palliser novels. I had never heard of it, but found it lurking, a tatty paperback on the top corner of the bookcase where it has remained, yellowing for the last 15 years. Whence it came I know not. Perhaps from a charity shop. But it is a great potboiler and cries out for a television adaptation. It is light and comic but with these marvellously rich characters that are both modern and recognisable. But also it is full of cleverness and subtlety and poses enormous question marks such as - well how would you behave if you found yourself in this situation? So I will recommend it. Not that I should be recommending anything being, not a member of the Book Club.
