We all enjoyed “My Name is Lucy Barton” by Elizabeth Strout . It was short and easy to read but deceptively so. It actually tackled some big themes and proved very moving at times. As the narrator looks back over the regrets and successes of her life, she describes a time when, trapped in hospital by a post-operative infection, she was unexpectedly visited by her mother. During the account of their awkward conversations the past is gradually revealed or suggested. We felt we were in the hands of a very accomplished writer. Our next book is “The Secret Life of Bletchley Park” by Sinclair McKay.
