Reading... Sing Me Who You Are by Elizabeth Berridge

Time & Location

About the Event

The Sisterhood Book Club is a friendly book club for adults, discovering and rediscovering female protagonists in classic, modern classic and contemporary world fiction written by women.

We meet monthly to informally discuss a book read in advance, over refreshments at the Emporium. The cost of taking part is the purchase of the book to be discussed, and books are available to collect at least a month prior to the book club.

We were inspired by Penguin Books' Sisterhood Collection, which included titles such as Anne of Green Gables, Little Women and Pride and Prejudice. Most recently, we have read One For Sorrow, Two For Joy (Marie-Claire Amuah), A System So Magnificent it is Blinding (Amanda Svensson) and Marple (various authors). 

About the book:

Sing Me Who You Are by Elizabeth Berridge

Harriet Cooper bumps up a rutted lane in a Hillman crammed with everything she owns.  She has come to claim her inheritance - a large green bus - left to her by her aunt, and moves in with two cats to live a frugal life, much to the chagrin of her cousin who has inherited the rest of the estate. This is a timely reissue of a 1960s novel that deals with the lingering trauma of the Second World War and the dark secrets that families carry, as well as being an early advocate of environmental issues, which chime with such resonance fifty years later.
