Souper Book Club

The Souper Book Club meets the third Thursday of every month, from 12:00-1:00pm for a bowl of soup and a lively discussion of our current book. It is a unique club that focuses exclusively on reading debut novels. The goal is to stretch the reading experience beyond normal boundaries and comfort zones and maybe, just maybe find a brand-new favorite author.  

BOOK OF THE MONTH Queenie Malone Paradise Hotel

By: Ruth Hogan

Overview

From the bestselling author of The Keeper of Lost Things and The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes – a novel of mothers and daughters, families and secrets and the astonishing power of friendship.

Tilly was a bright, outgoing little girl who liked playing with ghosts and matches. She loved fizzy drinks, swear words, fish fingers and Catholic churches, but most of all she loved living in Brighton in Queenie Malone’s Magnificent Paradise Hotel with its endearing and loving family of misfits – staff and guests alike.

But Tilly’s childhood was shattered when her mother sent her away from the only home she’d ever loved to boarding school with little explanation and no warning. Now, Tilda has grown into an independent woman still damaged by her mother’s unaccountable cruelty. Wary of people, her only friend is her dog, Eli. But when her mother dies, Tilda goes back to Brighton and with the help of her beloved Queenie sets about unraveling the mystery of her exile from The Paradise Hotel and discovers that her mother was not the woman she thought she knew at all … Mothers and daughters … their story can be complicated … it can also turn out to have a happy ending.
