A Novel Idea - December

A Novel Idea will be meeting on Wednesday, December 13th. December's book choice is In The Midst of Winter by Isabelle Allende. Join us from 11am-12pm as we discuss the peaks and pitfalls of In The Midst of Winter

If you'd like to read this month's selection, stop by the library for a copy from our display or visit our catalog.  Here is a brief summary of In The Midst of Winter by Isabelle Allende: 

"In the Midst of Winter begins with a minor traffic accident--which becomes the catalyst for an unexpected and moving love story between two people who thought they were deep into the winter of their lives. Richard Bowmaster--a 60-year-old human rights scholar--hits the car of Evelyn Ortega--a young, undocumented immigrant from Guatemala--in the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn. What at first seems just a small inconvenience takes an unforeseen and far more serious turn when Evelyn turns up at the professor's house seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant Lucia Maraz--a 62-year-old lecturer from Chile--for her advice. These three very different people are brought together in a mesmerizing story that moves from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil, sparking the beginning of a long overdue love story between Richard and Lucia."
