Anyone and everyone is welcome to join our monthly book club. In the seven years that the Book Club has been part of St Margaret's House , it has brought together a group of people who share a love of literature and commitment to St Margaret's social and environmental work. This December the group will be discussing The End We Start From by Megan Hunter
Megan Hunter's honed and spare prose paints an imagined future as realistic as it is frightening. Though the country is falling apart around them and its people are forced to become refugees, this family’s world – of new life and new hope – sings with love. In the midst of a mysterious environmental crisis, as London is submerged below flood waters, a woman gives birth to her first child. Days later, the family are forced to leave their home in search of safety. As they move from place to place, shelter to shelter, their journey traces both fear and wonder as the baby's small fists grasp at the things he sees, as he grows and stretches, thriving and content against all the odds.
