Welcome, Reading Groups!
Long before A Map of the World and The Book of Ruth were chosen as Oprah's Book Club® Selections, Jane Hamilton was a favorite among reading groups. Her sharply drawn characters and poignant storylines depict real people struggling with the complexities and tragedies of ordinary life, raising rich themes for book club discussion. So whether you're a new reader discovering Jane Hamilton for the first time or an established fan revisiting an old favorite, share these novels with your Reading Group. You'll be amazed at the great conversations you'll have!
