We have made it to week 3! Another week of some good reading here on my end!
The Read for this week is: “The Peach Keeper” by Sarah Addison Allen
Amazon: The Peach Keeper: A Novel
This book was a completely random find on the shelf at the entrance to the library. I have never heard of the author before or this book. It looked like a good story! The story is set in modern-day times, but has history back to 1936 when a group of women formed their own society to help each other out. Hard times with a mix of rich & poor girls in a small town. Years later, two daughters of the original members still live there, but are not friends. However the club still exists and one of the girls is trying to get the other to come to a party to celebrate 75 years of the club. The club is being held at a restored mansion and oddly there was a peach tree growing on the grounds. The story is about how this peach tree grew and how the club got started. There is also a bit of fun romance and a rekindled friendship along the way. This was a pretty light read, but definitely held my attention well. I read this in about 4 hours on a plane and in my hotel room.
Edit: This book does have magic in it. I didn’t really pick up on it as a huge issue, but its there so I feel like I should warn people who are against that type of stuff! It’s not something I typically read but it didn’t bother me.
Luckily I found another great read that is good for any occasion!
Are you doing much summer reading? Do you like to read?
