Join the Gals of Southern Maryland for our monthly book club and brunch meet up! We'll meet every month at different places for brunch. And don't worry if you don't finish the book in time—this is really more of a recurring social event so we can all get to know each other!
February's book will be:
Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende
An orphan raised in Valparaiso, Chile, by a Victorian spinster and her rigidbrother, vivacious young Eliza Sommers follows her lover to California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Entering a rough-and-tumble world of new arrivals driven mad by gold fever, Eliza moves in a society of single men and prostitutes with the help of her good friend and savior, the Chinese doctor Tao Chi'en. California opens the door to a new life of freedom and independence for the young Chilean, and her search for her elusive lover gradually turns into another kind of journey. By the time she finally hears news of him, Eliza must decide who her true love really is.
Feel free to join us even if you haven't read or finished the book.
