Bookclub - "Day after Night"

We had bookclub at Louise's last night to discuss "Day after Night" by Anita Diamant.  I think we all agreed that it was disappointing book.  The characters and storyline promised so much but failed to deliver.  All of us had to refer back to the blurb to remember which character was which.  We'd previously read "The Red Tent" by the same author and were expecting "Day after Night" to have the same depth.  Sadly it didn't...the only good thing was most of us managed to borrow a copy and not buy one.  Would we recommend it - no, not even if you managed to borrow a copy.

What wasn't disappointing (of course) was the company and dessert.  Louise had made the smoothest cheesecake ever.  It just slid off the spoon and melted in our mouths.  Mmmmmmmm.  We celebrated holding bookclub in Louise's new house for the first time and Carol's birthday.  It was another lovely evening. 

After dessert came the bit that we all eagery await...the title of the next book.  It was Mandy's choice - "The Shack" by William Paul Young.  I've already read this one but it was a while ago and I'm more than happy to read it again.

Can't wait for the next bookclub.  I don't think we've had a book that talks about God...
