Stephanie from Behind the Camera and Dreaming, has chosen our October book Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger.

Circle of Friends has been a really interesting read, for me. Here is a quick plot summary and a review:

"This coming of age novel from the pen of Maeve Binchy is delightful. As young Benny Hogan grows into young adulthood, she finds a friend in Eve, an orphan raised by nuns in the local convent.

Together she and Eve leave home for Dublin to attend college although Benny's overprotective parents force her to return home each evening on the bus.

First year college romances arrive for both Benny and Eve. Despite overcoming many obstacles in gaining a foothold as an adult, Benny Hogan gathers a circle of friends. She learns about loss, about first love, and about lasting happiness that comes from within." 

Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy, Resident Scholar 



"There is nothing fancy about [this novel]. There is no torrid sex, no profound philosophy. There are no stunning metaphors. There is just a wonderfully absorbing story about people worth caring about. And that is a rare pleasure." 
Susan Isaacs, The New York Times Book Review

Come join us tonight to discuss your opinion of this book. Hope to see you there!
