This is an informal get together for those who love to read, those who want to read more, those who want to rediscover a love of reading, find new books, share thoughts and opinions, listen to others, feel inspired to pick up a book instead of turning to a screen all over a glass of whatever takes your fancy.
We invite you to Between The Lines Book Club where we will be discussing The Wren, The Wren by Anne Enright
Nell – funny, brave and so much loved – is a young woman with adventure on her mind. As she sets out into the world, she finds her family history hard to escape. For her mother, Carmel, Nell’s leaving home opens a space in her heart, where the turmoil of a lifetime begins to churn. And across the generations falls the long shadow of Carmel’s famous father, an Irish poet of beautiful words and brutal actions.
This is a meditation on love: spiritual, romantic, darkly sexual or genetic. A multigenerational novel that traces the inheritance not just of trauma but also of wonder, it is a testament to the glorious resilience of women in the face of promises false and true. Above all, it is an exploration of the love between mother and daughter – sometimes fierce, often painful, but always transcendent.
