Why did we pick this book?
We were in the mood for a historical romance and learned about this book. It’s the first in a series and promises to be swoonworthy. What really intrigued us were the four main characters. From the book decription, it seems like they all have very different personalities and interests.
Also, the book is set in 1910, which isn’t a typical time for historic books. If you’d like to join us, book club is on June 25, 2023. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the link.
