One reviewer described the Heritage women’s book club (also known as Babes With Books or BWB) selection for their February 15 meeting as, “That rarest of beasts: the perfect thriller.” Be prepared to lose sleep when you read the club’s selection, The Silent Patient, by Alex Michaelides, since you won’t want to put it down. The novel starts as a woman shoots her husband in the head five times and then decides to stay silent thereafter. How can her physiotherapist help her when she refuses to talk? Only if you read the many intriguing plot twists will the answer become apparent. I challenge you to figure it out before the final pages, but you will have all the necessary clues.
The BWB’s reading future selections and meeting dates are as follows:
- March 15 – Lessons in Chemistry, by Bonnie Gamus
- April 17 – The Book of Lost Friends, by Lisa Wingate
- May 19 – The Round House, by Louise Erdich
- June 21 – The Two Mrs. Carlyles, by Suzanne Rindell (limited copies available)
- July 19 – Transcendent Kingdom, by Yaa Gyasi
All meetings are held from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Heritage Room, unless otherwise announced.
All women (be they members or friends) are always invited to any BWB meeting – whether they have read the book or not. Unless otherwise announced, the meeting’s book selection is available on hold for the Heritage Book Club at the Anderson Township branch of the Hamilton County Library approximately a month in advance.
