Nineteen members joined us for our August meeting in the Murray Room of the Howe Library in Hanover NH.
Laura Schneider, the U.S. Librarian for the Nevil Shute Norway Foundation, lead the discussion of Pastoral. The discussion centered around the main themes of the book: the peaceful life of the English countryside contrasted with the stress and uncertainty of flying off to battle and possible death, the competency of Captain Peter Marshall as a leader of the men assigned to his bomber aircraft, and the love story between Marshall and WAAF Section Officer Gervase Robertson.
