In 1940, eighteen-year old Juliet Armstrong is reluctantly recruited into the world of espionage. Sent to an obscure department of MI5 tasked with monitoring the comings and goings of British Fascist sympathizers, she discovers the work to be by turns both tedious and terrifying. But after the war has ended, she presumes the events of those years have been relegated to the past for ever.
Ten years later, now a producer at the BBC, Juliet is unexpectedly confronted by figures from her past. A different war is being fought now, on a different battleground, but Juliet finds herself once more under threat. A bill of reckoning is due, and she finally begins to realize that there is no action without consequence.

The next book group meeting is 20th October, the book is Clock Dance. Here is a brief synopsis.
Willa Drake can
count on one hand the defining moments of her life: when she was eleven and her
mother disappeared, being proposed to at twenty-one, the accident that would
make her a widow at forty-one. At each of these moments, Willa ended up on a
path laid out for her by others.
So when she receives a phone call telling her
that her son’s ex-girlfriend has been shot and needs her help, she drops
everything and flies across the country. The spur-of-the moment decision to
look after this woman – and her nine-year-old daughter, and her dog – will lead
Willa into uncharted territory. Surrounded by new and surprising neighbours,
she is plunged into the rituals that make a community, and takes pleasure in
the most unexpected things.
A bittersweet novel of hope and regret,
fulfilment and renewal, Clock Dance brings us the everyday
life of a woman who decides it’s never too late to change direction, and choose
your own path.
The book group meets in the Tamberlin room from 3:30pm.
