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 Club boxes are everything you love about our Classic Tasting Boxes and MORE! They are the ultimate gift experience as not only do you receive a renowned Tasting Box filled with gifts (these are a surprise!), you will also be given exclusive access to attend the online book club meeting for MAY as well as a Q&As with the author.
Our MAY pick is - Florence Adler Swims Forever By Rachel Beanland and our online book club discussion in on SUNDAY 30th May 2021. You will be sent an email with the link to the book club discussion during the week leading up to the event.
Our MAY theme is: The Book Lover - so you can expect treats perfect for any book worm!
Synopsis for the book:
Over the course of one summer that begins with a shocking tragedy, three generations of the Adler family grapple with heartbreak, romance, and the weight of family secrets.
Every summer, Esther and Joseph Adler rent their house out to vacationers escaping to “America’s Playground” and move into the small apartment above their bakery. This is the apartment where they raised their two daughters, Fannie and Florence. Now Florence has returned from college, determined to spend the summer training to swim the English Channel, and Fannie, pregnant again after recently losing a baby, is on bedrest for the duration of her pregnancy. After Joseph insists they take in a mysterious young woman whom he recently helped emigrate from Nazi Germany, the apartment is bursting at the seams.
When tragedy strikes, Esther makes the shocking decision to hide the truth—at least until Fannie’s baby is born—and pulls the family into an elaborate web of secret-keeping and lies, bringing long-buried tensions to the surface that reveal how quickly the act of protecting those we love can turn into betrayal after tragedy.
BASED ON A TRUE STORY.
