[close] Jeff Buckley was a musician who produced one record, Grace, before drowning in the Mississippi River at age 31. He was an artist, and I've found his taste in most things (music, books, philosophy, humor) is worth knowing. And since he lived a somewhat public life, some of that is accessible even though I never knew the man and he is now gone. So, yes, that's weird. But I enjoy exploring the passions of other people and so this book group will read books that were in his library. These titles are based on a list published by his mother after his death.

[close] Wednesday, February 17th – Wednesday, February 24th – Bestselling novelist Natasha Solomons will be taking questions from Goodreads members in a special one-week only discussion group. Post your questions for Natasha here and she'll begin responding on the 17th. Known for the bestselling novel THE HOUSE AT TYNEFORD, Solomons’s breathtaking new novel, THE SONG OF HARTGROVE HALL is available now from Plume Books. It’s a terrible thing to covet your brother’s girl New Year’s Eve, Dorset, England, 1946. Candles flicker, a gramophone scratches out a tune as guests dance and sip champagne— for one night Hartgrove Hall relives better days. Harry Fox-Talbot and his brothers have returned from World War II determined to save their once grand home from ruin. But the arrival of beautiful Jewish wartime singer Edie Rose tangles the threads of love and duty, and leads to a devastating betrayal. Fifty years later, now a celebrated composer, Fox reels from the death of his adored wife, Edie. Until his connection with his four-year old grandson – a music prodigy – propels him back into life, and ultimately to confront his past. An enthralling novel about love and treachery, joy after grief, and a man forced to ask: is it ever too late to seek forgiveness? THE SONG OF HARTGROVE HALL has it all: a love triangle, family obligations, and rediscovering joy in the face of grief, all set against the alluring backdrop of an English country estate.
