Reading Suggestions from Book Clubs and More

   
The Bookends Book Club of Wakarusa, Indiana, recommends:


Sweet Salt Air
by Barbara Delinsky (St. Martin's Press, 2013), Fiction, 416 pages

 

"This is a sweet summer love story, one full of many different types of relationships.  Friends from childhood, Charlotte and Nicole come together after years apart to write a cookbook full of recipes from the Island of their youth, Quinnipeague. Being back on the island stirs up their memories, both good and bad, as many things were left unsaid during those earlier years, and some secrets kept hidden.  An intriguing island man captures their interest, and Nicole is dealing with troubles from home. 

 

"Our group had a lively discussion about many topics, including: Is it ever right to keep a secret from a loved one?  How about bottling up your emotions and never letting your feelings out?  Forgiveness doesn't come easy, and there were many characters who needed it from each other. We discussed whether we would have forgiven these characters. We also loved discussing memories that came to light at the mention of a specific food item, and sharing memories of special summer locations and/or vacations."

 

Paired with:  "Clam Chowder, Passion Flower Tea (grown on Quinnipeague), Molasses Indiana Pudding, and of course, pie! You could choose any seaside recipe or item mentioned in the book (plenty to choose from)! Dried Lavender Sachets were also handed out to each member, and the room décor was ocean/whaling themed."
