Reading Clubs

Today I received my first feedback from a reading group. It was a great feeling to know that people had read my book and continued with the reading club notes at the back. 234 more words


Brenda reblogged this on Marriage A Journey and A Dog and commented:

Reading Clubs have sent me good feedback for my book. There are discussion suggestions in the back of the book. Some serious; some fun. One reading group decided to wear something turquoise because Natalie describes her life as turquoise.


  Life changes at forty for Natalie. She expects to remain in her comfort zone in a sleepy market town. She has a job as a bingo caller, a daughter preparing for college and an elderly father making his own life. She has been married to Gerry for eighteen years but he loves sport more than her. Gerry has a cycling accident in France. Natalie and her little dog Spike go to collect him. Poor map-reading skills take her on a journey through France and Spain. She finds a new self, but has to return home. Emotions run high as Natalie tries to make a difficult marriage work. At her fortieth, birthday party, comes a painful revelation. Now she is released into a new exciting life of love and marriage. Her new lifestyle attracts media acclaim and celebrity status. Natalie’s journey brings her laughter, tears, and surprises. DISCUSSIONS Was Gerry a likeable character? If Gerry and Natalie had talked more, could it have stopped the demise of their marriage Why was Gerry unfaithful? Should Natalie have tried to keep her marriage going? If Natalie had not gone on her journey what would her life have been like? What reasons caused a lack of self-confidence for Natalie in the early part of the book? To what extent did being unable to have more children make Natalie less valued in her own eyes? How much did the divorce affect Katy? Natalie describes this period of her life as turquoise; if you described a phase of your life by a colour what would it be? Is travelling alone a good or a bad thing, and does it matter what age you are when you go?
