Join us for a lively and thoughtful discussion of A Town Called Solace, by Mary Lawson:
"Eight-year-old Clara's teenage sister, Rose, has run away. Their next-door neighbor, Mrs. Orchard, is a retired schoolteacher who is away in hospital. Liam, a stranger to Clara, later moves into Mrs. Orchard's house. Told in three distinct, compelling voices--Clara's, Mrs. Orchard's, and Liam's--the novel cuts back and forth to carefully uncover the layers of grief, remorse, and love that connect families, and steadily builds towards an assured, heart-wrenching yet uplifting ending. A beautifully written, masterful, suspenseful and deeply humane novel by one of our great storytellers."
