Announcing Our Winter Book Club Pick
Shelf Pleasure is thrilled to announce our first book club selection, The Sweetness of Forgetting by Kristin Harmel!
This novel shares the emotional journey of a woman who travels to Paris to uncover a family secret for her dying grandmother–and discovers more
than she ever imagined.
Why The Sweetness of Forgetting?
Kristen Harmel is one of Shelf Pleasure’s favorite authors and this book marks a bold new direction. Weaving from modern day America to Paris
on the brink of World War II, Harmel tells a beautiful love story set against the backdrop of one of the most horrific times in our recent history.
Secrets long buried come to the surface, and generations–past and present–are finally brought together.
The Sweetness of Forgetting is a story of family, love, honesty…and baked goods.
We’ll be talking about the book during the rest of 2012, but we want to make sure everyone has a chance to run out and pick it up. Share your thoughts on the novel in our Book Club Forum and watch for special guest appearances on the site from the author herself.
We hope you love the book as much as we do. Happy reading!
