The Things We Wish Were True

By Marybeth Mayhew Whalen

From the outside, Sycamore Glen, North Carolina, might look like the perfect all-American neighborhood. But behind the white picket fences lies a web of secrets that reach from house to house. During the course of a sweltering summer, long-buried secrets are revealed, and the neighbors learn that it’s impossible to really know those closest to us. But is it impossible to love and forgive them?

What is The Girly Book Club you ask?

The concept is simple. We’re a global book club for likeminded women to discuss great books! All members of the book club read the same book over the same period; members then meet up in their respective cities at the end of each month to discuss the book and exchange views. This forum provides a rare and relaxed atmosphere for women to meet other like-minded women over a glass of wine and share a common passion.

  • I enjoy the books selected – probably ones I wouldn’t necessarily pick up and read, so it’s a great way for me to try new genres.
