Live Like Fiction Book Club
World Made By Hand
What I like about this series is the people. This book doesn't focus on world politics, peak oil, or terror plots. This is the story of a town in a farming community and how it survives. Complicated relationships, traditional gender roles, religious fanaticism and plain old fashioned murder and suicide are what creates the landscape of drama. Some folks found these books offensive. I found them fascinating. I love any story where people figure out how to survive and restart their community, because it gives me hope. And since this book takes place in a Greenwich, NY summer along the Battenkill River it's close enough for me to reach out and touch.
This will be our wrap-up discussion on the book! Feel free to share your ideas, thoughts, insights, and opinions in the comments!
P.S. Next Month's Pick involves a certain James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser....
