Book Club Choice for March.... These Fragile Things by Jane Davis

Every month a group of 6-8 women get together to discuss books, life, family, and everything else.   There are lots of laughs, usually a few drinks, and always dessert.    Even when life gets crazy we all make the effort to get together, putting our families on the back burner and enjoying a few hours together.   

Synopsis...   As Streatham, South London, still reels from the riots in neighbouring Brixton, Graham Jones, an ordinary father, grows fearful for his teenage daughter Judy who faces a world where the pace of change appears to be accelerating. But even he cannot predict what will happen next. A series of events is about to be unleashed over which he will have no control, and the lives of his family will change forever. When Judy claims to be seeing visions he will call it a miracle, and, to his wife’s horror, the hungry press will label theirdaughter ‘The Miracle Girl.’ Elaine, present when she came close to losing her daughter a first time - knowing it was the paramedics and surgeons who saved her - will demand a medical explanation. But Judy, refusing to become caught in this emotional tug-of-war, is adamant. She must tread her own path, wherever it takes her. Delusion, deception, diabolic…or is it just possible that Judy’s apparitions are authentic?

Our Thoughts...    Two of the ladies in our group finished the entire book.    Three of us started it and could not finish it.     We felt that the synopsis was misleading and the book confusing to follow.    We all did decide that every book does have it's readers and that while we did not enjoy it others may.
