The Meryl Streep Movie Club - Teaser Tuesday

13260317  

If you like books that explore relationships between women, you'll love THE MERYL STREEP MOVIE CLUB. I'm less than halfway through the story, and last night I had to force myself to stop reading so I could get some sleep!

Here's my Teaser from 3% on my Kindle:

The envelope, like the letter inside, typed on plain white paper, was unaddressed, unsigned:
Your husband is having an affair. I'm not sure if you know, or if you want to know.

Genre: Contemporary Women's Fiction
Length: 352 Pages
Amazon Link: The Meryl Streep Movie Club

Synopsis from Amazon:
In the bestselling tradition of The Friday Night Knitting Club and The Jane Austen Book Club, three women find unexpected answers, happiness, and one another with Meryl Streep movies as their inspiration.

Two sisters and the cousin they grew up with after a tragedy are summoned home to their family matriarch's inn on the coast of Maine for a shocking announcement. Suddenly, Isabel, June, and Kat are sharing the attic  bedroom--and barely speaking. But when innkeeper Lolly asks them to join her and the guests in the parlor for weekly Movie Night--it's Meryl Streep month--they find themselves sharing secrets, talking long into the night--and questioning everything they thought they knew about life, love, and one another.

Each woman sees her complicated life reflected through the magic of cinema: Isabel's husband is having an affair, and an old pact may keep her from what she wants most . . . June has promised her seven-year-old son that she'll somehow find his father, who he's never known . . . and Kat is ambivalent about accepting her lifelong best friend's marriage proposal. Through everything, Lolly has always been there for them, and now Isabel, June, Kat--and Meryl--must be there for her. Finding themselves. Finding each other. Finding a happy ending.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Well that sounds intriguing - doesn't sound like she has much choice but to know now! Here is my Tuesday Teaser

Sandra Nachlinger said...

The note is anonymous, so at first she thinks it's intended for someone else. Denial.

Heather said...

Sounds like this could be quite the emotional read. My teaser: A Timely Vision
