Better Than Therapy Book Club
Join us as we exploreThe Night Stranger by Chris Bohjalian. In a dusty corner of a basement in a Victorian house, a door has long been sealed shut with 39 carriage bolts. The home's new owners are Chip and Emily Linton and their twin ten-year-old daughters. Together they hope to rebuild their lives there after Chip, an airline pilot, has to ditch his 70-seat regional jet in Lake Champlain after double engine failure. Unlike the Miracle on the Hudson, however, most of the passengers aboard Flight 1611 die on impact or drown. The body count? Thirty-nine – a coincidence not lost on Chip. Meanwhile, Emily finds herself wondering about the women in this village – self-proclaimed herbalists – and their interest in her daughters. Are the women mad? Or is it her husband whose grip on sanity has become desperately tenuous? The result is a poignant and powerful ghost story. This book club meets on the last Wednesday of every month at 2pm in the Boardroom.
