Our Book Club and information for local Book Groups
Our Book Club is currently reading Mercia’s Take by Daniel Wiles
‘A brilliant debut’ Guardian1870s, the Black Country. Michael is a miner. But it’s no life for a man.
Michael exhausts himself working two jobs, to send his son Luke to school, so he won’t have to be a miner too. Down the pit one day, he finds a seam of gold. If he gets it out, he can save his own life, and Luke’s.
But his workmate has other ideas… Mercia’s Take summons an England in the heat of the industrial revolution, and the lives it took to make it. Gripping, powerful and intense, it is the debut of an astonishing new talent.
