The Mod Woman Book Club May Book Pick- The Strange Journey of Alice Pendlebury
Happy May everyone! This month’s book club pick was chosen by me instead of the “you decide” voting process”. Mainly because I was having a hard time finding two books and it was getting down to the wire. And with Ramadan coming up next week I needed something that could be a relatively quick and easy read. We will resume the voting process next month. Now that we have that out of the way, I think the book I chose is perfect for the spring season; The Strange Journey of Alice Pendlebury by Marc Levy. Below is the full synopsis of the story.
Alice Pendelbury believes everything in her life is pretty much in order—from her good friends to her burgeoning career. But even Alice has to admit it’s been an odd week. Not only has her belligerent neighbor, Mr. Daldry, suddenly become a surprisingly agreeable confidant, but he’s encouraging her to take seriously the fortune-teller who told her that only by traveling to Turkey can Alice meet the most important person in her life.
What’s more, the peculiarly insistent Mr. Daldry has even agreed to finance Alice’s trip—one that against all reason seems to be predestined. It’s on this journey, crazy from the outset and strangely irresistible, that Alice will find out that nothing in her life is real, that her past is not true, and that the six people she’s about to encounter will shape her future in ways she could never have dreamed.
Like I sated above, we will resume the voting process for the book club in June. And if you have any suggestions for books to put into the voting process please feel free to drop them in the comments below. Happy reading!
