Our Book Club

Our book club started in January 2024. We are taking a break until September 2024!  


We will be hosting a monthly book club in our Kids Room on a Sunday. We will have tea and some treats from Sour Me Sweet on hand. The book club is free, but we would love to know if you are coming!




We will be discussing Jane Doucet's latest book: Lost & Found in Lunenburg and then we will have Q and A with the author herself!


A quirky, tender work of contemporary fiction about grief, love, and starting again at middle-age set in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, from the author of The Pregnant Pause and Fishnets & Fantasies.

“That’s the problem with loving someone, isn’t it?” said Margot with a ghost of a smile. “If you have a heartbeat, you’re bound to get your heart broken. Not just once, but over and over again… But the joy that happens in between the meetings and the partings makes it all worthwhile.”

Rose Ainsworth, the affable protagonist in Jane Doucet’s debut novel, The Pregnant Pause, is back in this candid, compelling look at midlife love, loss, and new beginnings. Rose and Jim, her husband of almost twenty years, have been living happily in Halifax, Nova Scotia, since moving from Toronto more than a decade earlier. With a satisfying career, two sweet rescue mutts, and her family nearby, Rose’s life is golden — until one day, her world unexpectedly implodes.

Widowed suddenly soon after her fiftieth birthday, Rose is addled by grief. Could that be why three months later, she decides to buy her friend Wendy Hebb’s sex shop in the tiny coastal community of Lunenburg? As she rushes to rent her house and store her belongings, her older sister, Daisy, worries that Rose is running away — from the home that she and Jim lived in together, and its constant reminders of what she’s lost.

When Rose lands in Lunenburg in a furnished condo with a year’s lease, a colourful cast of local characters keeps her from drowning in grief: a long-lost quirky cousin with a mysterious health condition; a busybody septuagenarian widow who pushes Rose to join a bereavement group; and a handsome restaurant owner who stirs feelings in Rose she isn’t ready to face.

As the condo’s lease creeps closer to its expiration date, Rose must make a choice — continue carving out her new life in Lunenburg, or move back to her Halifax home? Jane Doucet’s trademark heart and humour, along with the return of beloved characters from The Pregnant Pause and Fishnets & Fantasies, make Lost & Found in Lunenburg feel like a long-overdue catch-up with old friends.

Thirtyology (Click to Purchase)

Elyse, Rachel, Brie, Leah and Alex, who have been best friends since their freshman year of college, are living their best lives in their late twenties. Between career accomplishments, bachelorette parties, weddings, baby showers and housewarming parties, they experience a wave of major life milestones together, jam-packed over one summer. Fast forward seven years, and despite the appearance of living their perfectly curated lifestyles, they all find themselves in unexpected situations. From mundane little struggles to life-altering decisions, the women navigate the throes of motherhood, fertility, career expectations and family relationships. Elyse finds herself at the pinnacle of her career, the absolute worst time to have a baby that her husband so desperately wants. Brie, who is happily focused on her academic career and a revolving door of six-month situationships, has her life flipped upside down when she becomes the caregiver for her ailing mother. Alex, freshly back to work after maternity leave, struggles with her identity and confidence as a woman, professional and mother, especially when her own estranged mother starts to push for more of a presence in her life. Leah is dealing with secondary infertility, a husband who is not willing to do whatever it takes to expand their family, and the overall realization that she has less control over her life than she thought she did. And Rachel, now a mom of two, is just going through the motions of daily life. She’s been putting others’ needs before her own for so long that it doesn’t even bother her, most of the time. Thirty(ology) is a reflection of modern women, the formative decade that is your thirties, and most importantly, the female friendships that, although they may get put on the backburner, are the foundation for thriving—or at least surviving—your thirties.
