February Book Club

Last Thursday night we got together again for book club. Kim chose this month's book, "Frenchman's Creek" by Daphne du Maurier.

Jaded by the numbing politeness of Restoration London, Lady Dona St. Columb revolts against high society. She rides into the countryside, guided only by her restlessness and her longing to escape.
But when chance leads her to meet a French pirate, hidden within Cornwall's shadowy forests, Dona discovers that her passions and thirst for adventure have never been more aroused. Together, they embark upon a quest rife with danger and glory, one which bestows upon Dona the ultimate choice: sacrifice her lover to certain death or risk her own life to save him.

Frenchman's Creek is the breathtaking story of a woman searching for love and adventure who embraces the dangerous life of a fugitive on the seas.

We ended up getting together at Randi's house because she had a quilt she needed to finish tying. She fed us a yummy dinner first while we discussed the book and then while she worked on her quilt, we munched on Candied Popcorn and Rocky Road Brownies that Savannah brought for dessert. Delish! Until next month!
