Commonwealth by Ann Patchett

Commonwealth

A book loved by Michelle Obama.

We have a reading group set of The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah to give away.

About the book

It is 1964: Bert Cousins shows up at Franny Keating’s christening party uninvited and notices a heart stoppingly beautiful woman.

When he kisses Beverly Keating, his host’s wife, he sets in motion the joining of two families, whose shared fate will be defined on a day seven years later.

Please apply by 15 August, telling us why your reading group would like to win the set.

In the run up to publication of her autobiography, Becoming (published 13 November), Michelle Obama has been speaking to the American Library Association about her and her family’s love of books. Find out more about the books loved by Michelle Obama.
