The Evening Reading Group’s chosen book for this month was Salvation Creek by Susan Duncan. This book tells an inspiring and amusing sea change story.
Devestated after the unexpected deaths of her beloved husband and brother, Susan Duncan, a successful career woman, finally reaches a point when she feels she can no longer continue. She decides to leave her former life behind and start a new one in a tiny waterside community cut off from the rest of the world.
Although only one member of the group was able to finish the book in its entirety, the overall opinion was that the book was inspirational and relatable. It portrayed the lifestyle at Pittwater well and had a good sense of the community into which the author now found herself living. The group wondered if the book would have been different if the author had children. They gave the book a rating of 7.5 out of 10.
