Book Club Night

Tonight was book club night at Ms. Signe's house.  She made a wonderful dessert that I need to get the recipe for.  It had raspberry sherbert, cream cheese, whipped topping and marshmallow creme served in a chocolate crust.  Really good!

We read The French Gardener by Santa Montefiore (my pick).  It was an easy read and everyone enjoyed the book.  From the author's descriptive writing, most of us could really imagine what the gardens and characters looked like.  It took place in England and there was a french gardener (hence the title!) - I kind of imagined him looking like Bradley Cooper!  I would recommend the book and another one of hers called The Mermaid Garden.

Next up is called The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.  This has also come highly recommended so I can't wait to start it.
