Adult Book Discussion: Seven Days of Us

Monday, January 7, 2019 -
7:00pm to 8:30pm
This month's Adult Book Discussion book will be Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak.

It's Christmas, and for the first time in years the entire Birch family will be under one roof. Even Emma and Andrew's elder daughter-who is usually off saving the world-will be joining them at Weyfield Hall, their aging country estate. But Olivia, a doctor, is only coming home because she has to. Having just returned from treating an epidemic abroad, she's been told she must stay in quarantine for a week.and so too should her family. In close proximity, not much can stay hidden for long, and as revelations and long-held tensions come to light, nothing is more shocking than the unexpected guest who's about to arrive.

Copies of the book are available at the Library Service Desk one month before our discussion. Join us for a lively discussion.
