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

Join the Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club as we read a Stephanie Plum mystery, Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich
Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 from Hawaii to Newark, she's knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, she's flying back to New Jersey solo, and someone who sounds like Sasquatch is snoring in row 22. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he's dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. The FBI, the fake FBI, and guns-for-hire are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying. Only one other person has seen the missing photograph--Stephanie Plum. Now she's the target, and she doesn't intend to end up in a garbage can. Read more about Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club: Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich
