The Book Club meets monthly over drinks, and everybody is welcome to attend, whether they've had the chance to read the book or not.

The Sisters of Sinai is non-fiction. One review runs: Janet Soskice has written a stunning account of the adventurous Smith twins, their lives, loves and ferocious determination to pursue their scholarly goals in the face of academic and social prejudice against women intellectuals. It is a gripping page-turner, as thrilling as any Victorian romance. Whether you are interested in Biblical studies or not, as a story of detection, courage and scholarship, it is a fascinating and enthralling read. Unputdownable.
