Splendid first meeting of a new book group in Dunoon. Our vestry secretary had chosen the book — Sally Vicker’s Miss Garnet’s Angel — and got us all started. The harder task was keeping us in check.
What I value most about a group like this is that it is quite possible for the quality of the conversation to surpass the quality of the novel, and to enjoy the conversation when one didn’t much like the book. Though in this instance, Miss Garnet seemed to charm and please.
