This month all the books were chosen at least twice, but the most popular was Anna Hope’s The Ballroom, (hardback – £10.99) which is a beautifully written novel set in an asylum on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors in 1911.
If you didn’t get one on the night, Waterstones still have a few copies signed by Anna Hope in branch, so please let Leilah know ASAP if you’d like to reserve a copy. Tell the Waterstones Doncaster staff member that you’re with the book club, and they should know to take off the extra pound, disclaimer.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday 23rd March, 5.25pm for 5.45pm.
Also, don’t forget last Month’s author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, Jo Cannon is popping into Waterstones on Thursday, more information can be found here.
The Ballroom, Anna Hope
By the acclaimed author of WAKE
Where love is your only escape…1911
Inside an asylum at the edge of the Yorkshire moors, where men and women are kept apart by high walls and barred windows, there is a ballroom vast and beautiful. For one bright evening every week they come together and dance. When John and Ella meet it is a dance that will change two lives forever.
Set over the heatwave summer of 1911, the end of the Edwardian era, The Ballroom is a tale of unlikely love and dangerous obsession, of madness and sanity, and of who gets to decide which is which.
