March Read-along Schedule and Sign-ups: The Yellow House by Patricia Falvey

March is just around the corner, and with it comes time for our Irish fiction read-along. When the votes were all tallied, The Yellow House by Patricia Falvey was the clear winner.

I’ve broken the book up into four sections. The page numbers I will use are from the hardcover edition, but the book is also helpfully divided into sections, and so the section titles should help anybody using a paperback, audio, or e-book edition. Here’s the schedule:

Section One – March 1st through 8th – post to go up on March 9th: pages 1 through 90 – sections “Glenlea, County Armagh, 1905” and “Queensbrook Linen Mill, 1913”

Section Two – March 9th through 15th – post to go up on March 16th : pages 91 through 164 – sections “War, 1914-1918” and “Insurrection, 1919-1920”

Section Three – March 16th through 22nd – post to go up on March 23rd: pages 165 through 238 – sections “Truce, 1920-1921” and “Passion, 1921”

Section Four – March 23rd through 29th – post to go up on March 30th: pages 239 through 331 (the end) – sections “Secrets, 1922,” “Choices, 1922,” “Home, 1922,” and “Epilogue, 1924”

Each week on the post date, I’ll have my thoughts posted first thing in the morning. If you’re reading along, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section, or else leave a link to a discussion post on your own blog.

Please leave a comment and let me know if you’re planning to join in. I’m looking forward to reading along with all of you!

    I read this a couple of years ago and really liked it. I hope everyone reading along will enjoy it too.

    Well, I requested the book from the library but it’s not due back until late March and then it will have to be shipped to my branch so I doubt if I’ll get the book on time to actually join in with the discussion while it’s going on. Will be keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best though, cause you just never know.

    I’m really looking forward to this, though I am likely to be behind given the cold that is wracking my body…

    I’ve had this book on my shelf for ages and it’s about time I read it. Serena talked me into the readalong so I am starting it tonight. Hopefully I will be able to join in the first section discussion soon!
