March Book Club Report

We met at Susie’s and we were more than very suitably fed and watered. We discussed Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulkes. Comments as follows:, good story; good characterisation; revealing descriptions of the lives of the French in Vichy France, originally life did not seem to be too regimented, but as the war progressed life changed for the worse; the treatment of the Jews was shocking; the heroine was a difficult to understand, she was amazingly self-contained but believable; as ever, S. Faulkes wrote a good story
