A Fool's Journey

Wednesday, March 23, 2016 | Permalink

Imagine a stay in a quaint Scottish pub, with home cooking and a caring host, and a heathery, foggy landscape. It may seem a dream of a vacation, but for Maggie, her husband and his friend, Hank, it's not all it's cracked up to be. 

At The Water's Edge is our pick for CapRadio Reads in April, and the book’s idyllic setting turns very troubling and dark. It is, however, a place for Maddie's metamorphosis. Her transformation is one of the redeeming aspects of this tale, and what happens around Maddie has as much influence on her as what happens to her. 

I hope you enjoyed this selection. I chose it because sometimes an imperfect book is more interesting than a perfect one. This book’s imperfection is likely to inspire quite a discussion at our meetings on April 12th. Sign up for a place at the table at 2 p.m. or at 6 p.m.
