Lose yourself this summer with The House at the Edge of the Night


We have 3 sets of 10 copies of this beautiful summer read to give away, the perfect book club choice for those who want to take a trip to the Mediterranean!

On a tiny island off the coast of Italy, a place alive with stories, legends and sometimes miracles, live the Esposito family – spirited and chaotic, they have been running the bar, the House at the Edge of Night, for almost a century.

As the island withstands a century of turmoil, transformed in ways both big and small by war, tourism and recession, the House at the Edge of Night remains at the heart of the community. Especially for the women of the Esposito family, who thrive in running the place where unexpected friendships are forged, betrayals are discovered and great love affairs begin.
