MAKE A BOOKING

Ladies your invited to join us for another Book Club.

If you haven't attended before please come along as it's a fun and supportive group of ladies who enjoy catching up socially and a meal is enjoyed on the night.

We choose to meet up every 2 months as this gives everyone time to source the book and read it.

This year it was suggested that 2 books get chosen each meeting, so this gives everyone a choice. On the night we discuss a book or books that the group have read and then each person is given an opportunity to express their opinions, likes and dislikes.

In saying that if you haven't read the book, then it’s still totally ok to come along. Please don’t feel any pressure, the group is all about having fun!

Financial Adventurous Women are free to attend and for Non Financial /Trial Members, please bring a gold coin donation.

Looking forward to having your company, any questions please email Leonie on leonie@adventurouswomen.com.au

 

The 2 books put forward to read this time are:

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood 


Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she lived and made love with her husband, Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now...

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks


A novel of suspense that explores the complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement.
You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves.
You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
Assume nothing.

by Fiona P

Excellent tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. We were made feel welcome by the Adventurous Women leaders. The group was a good size so that we all had the opportunity to thoroughly enjoy the SUP experience. The afternoon tea afterwards was beautifully presented and gave us the opportunity to reflect on our experience. Thanks for a fantastic afternoon.
