The Velvet Hours by Alyson Richman

Join Main Street book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Inspired by true events, The Velvet Hours tells the vibrant stories of two women pursing freedom and independence as Paris teeters on the edge of German occupation.

As a courtesan, Marthe de Florian cultivated a life of beauty and art and cast out all recollections of her impoverished youth in the dark alleys of Montemartre. Now, with Europe on the brink of war, she shares her story with her granddaughter Solange Beaugiron using her collection of treasures to reveal her innermost secrets. Solange is a budding writer with her own story to tell. The world she thought she knew is unraveling and her mother recently revealed her Jewish heritage. Hoping to understand her past, she takes a precious book from her mother's collection to a rare book dealer. There she meets the bookseller's son, Alec, and slowly falls in love. All the while, Hitler's troops draw closer to Paris.

A Great Deliverance by Elizabeth George

Friday • June 30 • 7pm

Mill Creek store

Join the Usual Suspects book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

According to legend, 300 years ago frightened Yorkshire villagers smothered a crying babe in the Keldale Abbey, where they'd hidden from Cromwell raiders. To this day, a thin infant wail can be heard in the lush green valleys. Now, a murder even more shocking has been committed.

Roberta Teys, a silent, obese adolescent, is accused of beheading her church-going father with an axe. Her first and last words before slipping into a catatonic state were, "I did it. And I'm not sorry." The inspectors sent by Scotland Yard to investigate the crime are a mismatched pair. Inspector Thomas Lynley is smooth, attractive, and utterly upper class where his probationary partner Sergeant Barbara Havers is stubby, sturdy, and conscious of her plain appearance and lower class origins. As Lynley and Havers wind their way through Keldale's dark labyrinth of secret scandals and appalling crimes, they uncover a shattering series of revelations that will reverberate through this tranquil English valley—and in their own lives in.
