As I mentioned in the kindle thread, I have just discovered that I own An Important Family by Dorothy Eden. Since it is available at a discounted price on kindle at the moment, would anyone else be interested in doing a group read, starting around the 10th of November?

I'll mention now I won't be doing any group reads in December. I have a few titles that don't "fit the brief" for any group I belong to & I want to get them read. :)

Lesley | 152 comments Yes, I would be interested. It remember my Mum reading some of Eden's books through her book club.

Ok, I think this is enough interest for a buddy read.

10th of November suit everyone?

If anyone else wants to lead a discussion, let us know!

Peggy (dandelion_cottage) | 263 comments Me too. My favorite (which of course hasn't been reissued as an ebook) is Crow Hollow.

I do have a few ideas for next year. I might start a thread soon so everyone can have their say. :)

debbicat *made of stardust* (cr8zycat) | 332 comments I adore creepy!


debbicat *made of stardust* (cr8zycat) | 332 comments I loved Waiting for Willa. But I don’t recall much of it. Read it in college years. I do remember thinking it was highly enjoyable. Suspenseful and gothic.

Debra | 9 comments I love Dorothy Eden, but can't place this one - maybe it was published with different titles in different countries? My favourite book of hers is 'The Salamanca Drum'.

It looks to be the last title she published (1982, the year of her death) Both Goodreads & Wikipedia show this as the original title.
