Title: 
Next to Love

Join the Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club as we read  Next to Love by Ellen Feldman, a tltle recommended for fans of The Guernsey Literary Society , The Postmistress, and The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. 

It’s 1941. Babe throws like a boy, thinks for herself, and never expects to escape her quiet Massachusetts town. Then World War II breaks out, and everything changes. Her friend Grace fears being left alone with her daughter when her husband ships out; Millie weds the boy who always refused to settle down; and Babe wonders if she should marry Claude, who even as a child could never harm a living thing. As the war rages abroad, Babe, Grace, and Millie experience the dislocations and the exhilaration of a society in flux—from postwar traumas to women’s rights, racial injustice to anti-Semitism. And when the men return, nothing can go back to quite the way it was. Read more about Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club: Next to Love by Ellen Feldman
