Book Discussion

Thursday, March 15

Noon

The Friends of the Macedon Public Library will be holding a book discussion on Thursday the 15th. This month’s book is Daughter of Fortune, by esteemed Peruvian/Chilean storyteller Isabel Allende.

Here’s what Amazon.com had to say about this engaging book:

An orphan raised in Valparaiso, Chile, by a Victorian spinster and her rigid brother, vivacious young Eliza Sommers follows her lover to California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Entering a rough-and-tumble world of new arrivals driven mad by gold fever, Eliza moves in a society of single men and prostitutes with the help of her good friend and savior, the Chinese doctor Tao Chi’en. California opens the door to a new life of freedom and independence for the young Chilean, and her search for her elusive lover gradually turns into another kind of journey. By the time she finally hears news of him, Eliza must decide who her true love really is.

This discussion is open to all. Check out the book and join us as we explore it more deeply.
