March’s read-along of The Yellow House has been so much fun, and I am excited to host another one in April. April’s book is The House at Tyneford by Natasha Solomons. Here’s the synopsis:
It’s the spring of 1938 and no longer safe to be a Jew in Vienna. Nineteen-year-old Elise Landau is forced to leave her glittering life of parties and champagne to become a parlor maid in England. She arrives at Tyneford, the great house on the bay, where servants polish silver and serve drinks on the lawn. But war is coming, and the world is changing. When the master of Tyneford’s young son, Kit, returns home, he and Elise strike up an unlikely friendship that will transform Tyneford – and Elise – forever.
I’ve broken the book up into four sections. Here’s the schedule:
Section One – post to go up on April 9th: Chapters 1 through 10
Section Two – post to go up on April 16th: Chapters 11 through 15
Section Three – post to go up on April 23rd: Chapters 16 through 21
Section Four – post to go up on April 30th: Chapters 22 through 26 (the end)
Each week on the post date, I’ll have my thoughts or questions 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!
