The Afternoon Tea Club by Jane Gilley




This book is a timely reminder for anyone getting old (and who isn't) to be cautious about your temperament and character because you might end up all alone, curmudgeon ly and a total bore!

Set amongst a group of people growing old lonely, some quite bitter and mixed up, a social gathering of an Afternoon Tea Club tries to get this group of very disparate people to forget their troubles of the past and move forward in the best way they can. Whether it is beginner computer studies or art studies or even a simple trip to the beach this is indeed a start for all of them.

The progress of each of our characters was a very good study of human behaviour. The setting and story were rounded and matter of fact.
