The Tasting Notes Book Club aims to bring together book enthusiasts through their love of reading. Lockdown has highlighted how much we need human contact, how we thrive when we can talk to others face to face (even if it is via the internet) and ultimately, how important it is to look after ourselves and those around us.


Our Book and Treat Option is simple. You will receive a copy of the book, a treat (edible/non-edible - it will change each month!) and access to the online book club discussion & LIVE author Q&A. 


Our OCTOBER pick is - The Gifts by Liz Hyder and our online book club discussion in on SUNDAY  3OTH OCTOBER. 


You will be sent an email with the link to the book club discussion during the weekend leading up to the event.


Synopsis for the book:

It will take something extraordinary to show four women who they truly are . . .

October 1840. A young woman staggers alone through a forest in Shropshire as a huge pair of impossible wings rip themselves from her shoulders.

Meanwhile, when rumours of a 'fallen angel' cause a frenzy across London, a surgeon desperate for fame and fortune finds himself in the grips of a dangerous obsession, one that will place the women he seeks in the most terrible danger . . .

THE GIFTS is the astonishing debut adult novel from the lauded author of BEARMOUTH. A gripping and ambitious book told through five different perspectives and set against the luminous backdrop of nineteenth century London, it explores science, nature and religion, enlightenment, the role of women in society and the dark danger of ambition.
