Genesis Book Group meets the third Thursday of each month in the Gathering Place on the lower level of Genesis UMC.
Next meeting: Thursday, March 16 at 7 pm – the Gathering Place @ Genesis
March selection: “A Hundred Summers” by Beatriz Williams
Memorial Day, 1938: New York socialite Lily Dane has just returned with her family to the idyllic oceanfront community of Seaview, Rhode Island, expecting another placid summer season among the familiar traditions and friendships that sustained her after heartbreak. That is, until the Greenwalds decide to take up residence in Seaview.
Nick and Budgie Greenwald are an unwelcome specter from Lily’s past: her former best friend and her former fiancé, now recently married—an event that set off a wildfire of gossip among the elite of Seaview, who have summered together for generations. Budgie’s arrival puts her once more in the center of the community’s social scene, and she insinuates herself back into Lily’s friendship. But the ties that bind Lily to Nick are too strong and intricate to ignore, and the two are drawn back into long-buried dreams, despite their uneasy secrets and many emotional obligations. excerpt from Goodreads
