Senior Book Club March Edition

Our Senior Book Club met last week to discuss their January read which wasย Prisoners of Geographyย by Tim Marshall.

This month the title they have chosen is

THE AWARD WINNING, INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

THE CHOICEย BY EDITH EDGER

cover

‘The Choiceย is a gift to humanity. One of those rare and eternal stories that you don’t want to end and that leave you forever changed’ DESMOND TUTU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

In 1944, sixteen-year-old Edith Eger was sent to Auschwitz. There she endured unimaginable experiences, including being made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. Over the coming months, Edithโ€™s bravery helped her sister to survive, and led to her bunkmates rescuing her during a death march. When their camp was finally liberated, Edith was pulled from a pile of bodies, barely alive.

Inย The Choice, Dr Edith Eger shares her experience of the Holocaust and the remarkable stories of those she has helped ever since. Today, she is an internationally acclaimed psychologist whose patients include survivors of abuse and soldiers suffering from PTSD. She explains how many of us live within a mind that has become a prison, and shows how freedom becomes possible once we confront our suffering.

Like Viktor Franklโ€™sย Manโ€™s Search for Meaning, but exceptional in its own right,ย The Choiceย is life changing. Warm, compassionate and infinitely wise, it is a profound examination of the human spirit, and our capacity to heal.
