Last night the ladies of Book Club met to discuss The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. Many admitted when this book was selected they weren't looking forward to reading it, given the horrific period in history it is set in.
However, everyone was pleasantly surprised to find this was a really good read, it is essentially a story of love and the determination to survive, and quite different to most books in this genre.
We scored this book 7.5 out of 10.
This was the first book selected from a recent donation by the Chippenham Borough Lands charity to the library of a grant to buy enough copies of selected books for the many local book groups (WI and otherwise) to enjoy.
Next month's read, Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon is also from this collection.
