Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2017
30 Borrow the e-book through Overdrive now! The Essex Serpent Sarah Perry Set in Victorian England, The Essex Serpent revolves around recently widowed Cora Seaborne, who visits Essex where locals fear a legendary monster is again murderously active. Cora is accompanied in Essex by three people who love her in different ways. Almost every character in the book loves at least one other, whether they know it or not – love doesn’t run smoothly. Although the title and jacket give the impression that the supernatural features strongly in the plot, really it is the stories of intertwining relationships with exploration of the various forms love can take, and the highly crafted, almost poetic style, that readers will enjoy most.
