For the month of October the Hearthstone Book Club will be reading:
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware - an "unputdownable" thriller
When she stumbles across the ad, she’s looking for something else completely. But it seems
like too good an opportunity to miss—a live-in nannying post, with a staggeringly generous
salary. And when Rowan Caine arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten—by the luxurious
“smart” home fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and
by this picture-perfect family.
What she doesn’t know is that she’s stepping into a nightmare—one that will end with a child dead and herself in prison awaiting trial for murder.
Writing to her lawyer from prison, she struggles to explain the unravelling events that led to her incarceration. It wasn’t just the constant surveillance from the cameras installed around the house, or the malfunctioning technology that woke the household with booming music, or turned the lights off at the worst possible time. It wasn’t just the girls, who turned out to be a far cry from the immaculately behaved model children she met at her interview. It wasn’t even the way she was left alone for weeks at a time, with no adults around apart from the enigmatic handyman, Jack Grant. It was everything.
She knows she’s made mistakes. She admits that she lied to obtain the post, and that her behavior toward the children wasn’t always ideal. She’s not innocent, by any means. But, she maintains, she’s not guilty—at least not of murder. Which means someone else is.
Full of spellbinding menace and told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style, The Turn of the Key is an "un-putdownable" thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.

Book Club Meets - The purpose to the club is to enlighten our members and get them out of their "comfort zone" with their "normal" type of book they read. You'd be surprised how many other types of books you may like. Join us for stimulating discussion about a new book every month. The group, led by Joan Ebersbach, discusses the book we've read during the last month and chooses a new book for the following month.
Second Saturday of the month at the clubhouse 6PM to ??
Residents get together here in the clubhouse to socialize for fun. It's also a way to celebrate anyone having a birthday that month. Everyone is welcomed HOWEVER the only rule is that each individual must bring what they are to drink and each individual must bring what they are to snack on (dessert, snacks, appetizers, crock pot surprises, etc.). As always it is always nice to bring extra to share .... Whatever is brought in must be brought out. Donating extra paper goods is always appreciated.
