The book we’ll be discussing is: “Grace and Mary” by Melvyn Bragg. Grace and Mary

‘John visits his ageing mother Mary in a nursing home by the sea and prompted with songs, photographs and questions, he uncovers the deep longing she has to find Grace, the mother she barely knew. He sets out to recreate their buried family history and reaching from the late 19th century to the present, this becomes a deeply moving elegy on 3 generations linked by a chain of love, loss & courage.’

Please come along even if you haven’t, or don’t want to read the current book, share your latest “reads”, enjoy coffee, cake and friendly discussion !
