Book club is one of my favorite things. I look forward to it every month. I’d always wanted to be in a book club and a few years back one of my friends invited a group of girls to join her bookclub. Best thing ever! This month we read The Sweetness of Forgetting by Kristin Harmel. And it’s probably been one of my favorite books. We seems to gravitate toward historical fiction, particularly World War II era books.
The Sweetness of Forgetting is about a woman named Hope who runs her family’s bakery in Cape Cod. Her grandmother has Alzheimer’s Disease and in a moment of clarity sends Hope on a journey to uncover the truth about her past. The book follows Hope as she travels to Paris and discovers how her grandmother survived World War II. I won’t risk giving away anymore of the storyline and spoiling the book, and that’s about as simple of a summary as I can give you….
