The latest book to be discussed by the Zoom Book Club is Blue Lightning by Ann Cleeves. Though the novel is number 4 in the popular televised crime series, it also reads well as a standalone book. The book was recommended by an old member of Crowlas and Ludgvan WI, Maureen, who read it with her WI Book Club in Devon.
Members particularly enjoyed the author’s descriptive language that reflected the mood of the Shetlands as winter approaches. The wildness of the island and the close knit community are particularly well depicted, and it was no surprise to hear that Ann Cleeve herself spent time at the Bird Observatory on Fair Isle.
The next book will be Island of Secrets by Patricia Wilson.
