Happy Bookers Discussion Group
Next meeting: Wednesday,
The Right-Hand Shore
by Christopher Tilghman
While visiting the dying owner of the family's estate in order to secure his inheritance, Edward hears stories about his family and land, from an ancestor's 1857 sale of soon-to-be emancipated slaves to a doomed effort to cultivate a peach orchard. "A rare achievement. Christopher Tilghman’s vision of the American past—and particularly of individuals caught in the tidal sweep of history—is dazzling in its precision and clarity.” —Charles Frazier, winner of the National Book Award for Cold Mountain
