Harriet Wolf’s Seventh Book Of Wonders

Book Club, Uncategorized

The book for March has been chosen, and it is Harriet Wolf’s Seventh Book Of Wonders: A Novel by Julianna Baggott.

Baggott, who also writes under the pen names N.E. Bode and Bridget Asher, has written 18 books, with her novel Pure being her most notable to date. She lives in Florida which is the place I now call home (for myself this is exciting but probably irrelevant to you). Read all about the author here.

She also writes a really great blog; introducing new writers and discussing her own writing techniques. It’s a good read for aspiring writers out there!

About the book

It appeared on New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2015 and they described it as an ‘intricate, tenderhearted novel’. The story spans the twentieth century, and combines the stories of a mother, her daughter, and her two granddaughters. One of the granddaughters is the only person who knows where the final ‘Seventh’ book is, which holds the truths of Harriet’s life. A story of love, motherhood, and secrets, I cannot wait to start turning the pages of this novel.

So read along with me, and we will be reviewing this book in April. Don’t forget to read this month’s book which is Where’d You Go, Bernadette which we will be reviewing in March. The ‘Cup of Coffee Book Club’ can be found on Goodreads, but I will also be posting the review and welcoming conversation and comments right here as well.

I hope you enjoy March’s read, and that you can answer the question on everybody’s lips: Was Harriet Wolf a real person, or is she a fictional character created by our author Julianna Baggott?
