For October 2012, my book selection is "The Almost Moon" by Alice Sebold. The book has been on my shelf for awhile and I'd like to read it. So let's do it!
One review says: "Book clubs, take notice: practically every paragraph is a talking point." - Newsweek
So we should have lots to discuss!! (Not that I was worried.)
ABOUT THE NOVEL
For years Helen Knightly has given her life to others: to her haunted
mother, to her enigmatic father, to her husband and now grown children.
When she finally crosses a terrible boundary, her life comes rushing in
at her in a way she never could have imagined. Unfolding over the next
twenty-four hours, this searing, fast-paced novel explores the complex
ties between mothers and daughters, wives and lovers, the meaning of
devotion, and the line between love and hate. It is a challenging,
moving, gripping story, written with the fluidity and strength of voice
that only Alice Sebold can bring to the page.
