General Fiction Book of the Month – September 2017

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2017! Autumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. That's what it felt like for Keats in 1819. How about Autumn 2016? Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. The United Kingdom is in pieces, divided by a historic once-in-a-generation summer. Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand in hand with hopelessness. The seasons roll round, as ever. The first in a seasonal quartet. (Join our Modern Fiction Reading Group to discuss this book!)

Days later, the family are forced to leave their home in search of safety.
