    This is the Book Club’s annual holiday party. This year's party is on TUESDAY, Dec. 12.

    Our host is Cathy Goocher. We will all enjoy seeing Cathy's beautiful home decorated for the Dunedin Youth Guild's annual Holiday Tour of Homes.

    For this month's meeting we gather together to share fellowship and the joy of the season. There is no book selected.

    For our holiday gift exchange we each bring a small gift, or perhaps a re-gift, a thrift store treasure or something funny. (It's not an exchange of generic items worth a certain amount.)

    Place the gift in a brown paper grocery bag and staple or tape it shut so it's surprise to whomever chooses it. We each take a number and pick a bag in turn or take someone else's gift if we like it better! It's always great fun!

    You are invited to bring an appetizer or holiday treat and/or a bottle of wine to share.

    Our book is "The Victory Garden: A Novel," by Rhys Bowen.

    As the Great War continues to take its toll in England, headstrong twenty-one-year-old Emily Bryce is determined to contribute to the war effort. She is convinced by a cheeky and handsome Australian pilot that she can do more, and before long she falls in love with him and accepts his proposal of marriage.

    When he is sent back to the front, Emily volunteers as a “land girl,” tending to the neglected grounds of a large Devonshire estate. It’s here that Emily discovers the long-forgotten journals of a medicine woman who devoted her life to her herbal garden. The journals inspire Emily, and in the wake of devastating news, they are her saving grace. As Emily learns more about the volatile power of healing with herbs, the journals will bring her to the brink of disaster, but may open a path to her destiny.

    Our book is "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo: A Novel," by Tracy Jenkins.

    This is the story of aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo who is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career. 

    Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.
