08 Jan 2020. We had a small but enthusiastic group for book club as we gathered to discuss The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff. The story centered around a curious, young widow named Grace who finds an abandoned briefcase in Grand Central Station right after WWII. She removed photos taken of 10 young women from the case and began a quest to find out the story behind the photographs.

Each chapter of the book was dedicated to a different character, which made the book, at times, difficult to follow or left the reader a bit unsatisfied because you were just getting into the story of character. The story unfolded as Grace looked to solve the mystery of these female spies in France and who betrayed them.

These young women were essentially left behind without recourse in war torn France. While we all really liked the storyline, the book seemed to read more like a teenage mystery rather than adult novel. If you are looking for an easy read on a heartfelt subject, then it’s worth your time!

RSVP tomorrow before noon! It's February in Tilburg - Carnival is behind us, but the rainy and gray weather is still with us. . What better reason could there be to get together for a nice movie on Friday night - February 28th. . For this month's movie, we'll be back at Cinecitta (Willem II straat 29, Tilburg) for the movie Little Women. . The film begins at 19:00 so please, meet at the theater at 6:40 so we can hand out tickets and we can get seated together. Let us know via email if you will be joining us by noon on Friday so we can order the tickets. Tickets are 11.25 each - please transfer payment to the TIC account, or bring cash to the theater on Friday. . . . Hope to see you on Friday for a fun movie and a drink afterwords! Based on the best selling book by Lauisa May Alcott, while Little Women tells the story of the 4 Marsh sisters, it's also a story about women who want things for themselves, who have ambitions and good intentions (sometimes bad intentions) and hopes for the future that are not limited to marriage or children. . . #bijnaweekend #movienight #littlewomen #movies #expatinholland #expatintilburg #tilburger #tilburg
Good morning Tilburg! #snow #winter #tilburger #tilburg
Good morning all! Friday has arrived and I imagine some of you are just as happy as me because of that 😆 A nice group braved the damp and blustery weather to meet and discuss The Lost Girls of Paris on our last #bookclub session 📖. We gathered around the cosy fireplace at one of our member's place and, while we all liked the book's storyline, we found the characters a bit unrealistic and the writing so-so. . A group member brought 3 really interesting book choices and (after explaining to us what a "crawdad" is ;-) we decided on: ✳️Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens (368 pages). . Many people have claimed this book is a "must read" so we hope you will get the book, read it and join us for a nice evening to discuss the book ☕. . We will meet on Tuesday, February 18th - 7:30 so make a note of it and plan to join us (location to be confirmed via email). All the best, Anne #expat #expatlife #dutchculture #holland #netherlands #visitnetherlands #visitholland #thenetherlands . . . . . . . . . . . #multicultural #tilburginternationalclub #tilburginternational #tilburg #tilburgdrinkt #tilburgismooi #visittilburg #ditistilburg #brabant #noordbrabant #visitbrabant #tilburgcom #inbrabant
