Join us to discuss The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck, a story of three women, and their children, who take refuge in the ruins of a Bavarian castle at the end of World War II. The women are war widows whose husbands paid with their lives for the July 1944 plot against Adolf Hitler. Soon this makeshift family discovers that secrets and dark passions from the past threaten to tear them apart. Eventually, all three women must come to terms with the choices that have defined their lives before, during and after the war—each with their own unique share of challenges.


If you’d like to read ahead, February’s book is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Have a book suggestion for the Book Chat? Email Barbara Goldner.
