OWL SONG AT DAWN by EMMA CLAIRE SWEENEY
Maeve Maloney is a force to be reckoned with. Despite nearing eighty, she keeps Sea View Lodge just as her parents did during Morecambe’s 1950’s heyday. But now only her employees and regular guests recognise the tenderness and heartbreak hidden beneath her spikiness.
Until, that is, Vincent shows up. Vincent is the last person Maeve wants to see. He is the only man alive to known her twin sister, Edie. The nightingale to Maeve’s crow, the dawn to Maeve’s dusk, Edie would have set her sights on the stage – all things being equal. But, from birth, things never were.
If only Maeve could confront the secret past she shares with Vincent, she might finally see what it means to love and be loved – a lesson that her exuberant yet inexplicable twin may have been trying to teach her all along.
This group read is a little different as we will be using a brand new set of books sent to us by Legend Press; in return we are going to try and generate as many reviews as we can by circulating the set around our Readers Groups. As you can imagine people are keen to support this new initiative, so all of the eleven copies that I have available for this group have been snapped up! Don’t worry though as we have ordered a copy for library stock so you can have a read and add your own comments to the discussion. As with all of our group reads; they never close so you can read along, follow the discussions and add your input whenever you want.
