Ludlow’s January book discussion topic is “what would you do?”

The Friends of the Library in Ludlow are happy to announce that our January book discussion selection is "The Soldier's Wife" by Margaret Leroy. If you have ever asked yourself "what would I do?" in a particular situation, this novel of passion and intensity will be of great interest.

As WW II grows closer to the British channel island of Guernsey just off the coast of France, Vivienne de la Mare knows that life will change. Sacrifices will be many for herself, her two daughters and her mother-in-law while her husband is away fighting. What she does not foresee is that a relationship will develop between herself and the German soldier living next door. How she deals with that situation, the food and resource scarcity and restrictions that grow more problematic with each passing week makes for a very interesting and memorable novel.

The discussion will be held at the library on Main Street in Ludlow on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. The books are available at the library. Please use the rear entrance where there is available parking, a ramp and an elevator.
