Read the first chapter here!

Get ready for our next Better Reading Book Club Live as we will be discussing March by Australian writer Geraldine Brooks, winner of the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

From Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Geraldine Brooks takes John March, the absent father and offers us his passionate story of struggle as she conjures a world of brutality, stubborn courage and transcendent love.

An idealistic abolitionist, March has gone as chaplain to serve the Union cause. But the war tests his faith not only in the Union – which is also capable of barbarism and racism – but in himself. As he recovers from a near-fatal illness, March must reassemble and reconnect with his family, who have no idea of what he has endured. A love story set in a time of catastrophe, March explores the passions between a man and a woman, the tenderness of parent and child, and the life-changing power of an ardently held belief.

Our next Better Reading Book Club will be on Wednesday September 7th at 8pm AEST on the Better Reading Facebook page. It’s the opportunity to join literally hundreds of other book lovers to discuss some of the great books around today. We had numerous amounts of amazing comments at our last book club and can’t wait to have you join us on the couch again…
