Our book club meets once a month in the Parlor. All are welcome. Choose one book each month, or read both.
The books this month are:
Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: four women undercover in the Civil War – Karen Abbott (Non-Fiction)
The never-before-told story of four real-life women who risked everything to take on a life of espionage during the Civil war. Belle became a courier and spy for the Confederates, Emma cut her hair and assumed the identity of a man in Union Army, Rose engaged in affairs with powerful Northern politicians to gather intelligence, and Elizabeth orchestrated a far-reaching espionage ring.
Vinegar Girl – Anne Tyler (Fiction and Fun)
Kate Battista feels stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and uppity, pretty younger sister, Bunny? Plus, she’s always in trouble at work-her pre-school charges adore her, but their parents don’t always appreciate her unusual opinions and forthright manner.
