We were going to be discussing A Disobedient Girl: A Novel, but not everyone had finished reading it. Overall I thought it was a terrific story, albeit very sad and downright gloomy at times. I felt it could have been much shorter and still tell the story without losing the details. The story is about two different women told by each of them in alternating chapters. If you read Sarah's Key, the story is told in the same format. Anyway, both women experience many disappointments and hardships and you really feel for them. It gets very interesting when their separate lives become intertwined. I would recommend this book, but it's not a "must read."
We'll be getting together on February 18th to discuss The Hussy with its author, Elaine Watkins, which I am sure will prove to be a fantastic time!
