The May meeting of Wine and Words Book Club was held at Ann’s because Kay’s home is still being remodeled. Everyone attended…Ann, Karen, Jan, Cindy, Linda, Sandie and Kay. Ann served a delicious salad with berries and a mushroom quiche.

We discussed The Light Between the Oceans and everyone enjoyed the book. Themes of morality, timing of events in our lives, loneliness affecting decisions, were discussed. Those who read the book thought the ending was rushed and not satisfactory. A movie is based on the book is scheduled to be released soon.
