November 2013 Reading Choice

 The Seance by John Harwood.

The Pioneer Bookshop Book Club will meet on Thursday, November 7, at 7pm at the Pioneer Bookshop.  The Seance is John Harwood’s brilliant second novel, a gripping gothic thriller set in late-Victorian England. It is a world of apparitions, of disappearances and unnatural phenomena, of betrayal and blackmail and black-hearted villains—and murder. For Constance’s bequest comes in two parts: a house and a mystery. Years before, a family disappeared at Wraxford Hall, a decaying mansion in the English countryside with a sinister reputation. Now the Hall belongs to Constance. And she must descend into the darkness at the heart of the Wraxford Mystery to find the truth, even at the cost of her life.

Books we will be discussing in the future are, 

  • December; Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner 
  • January; Lord of the Flies by William Golding 
  • February; Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
