Our Tuesday night book group is currently reading, John Boyne – The House of Special Purpose.

John Boyne The House of Special PurposeIn Russia during the year 1915, at the age of 16, Georgy Jachmenev steps in front of an assassin’s bullet intended for the heart of a senior member of the Russian Imperial Family. He is instantly proclaimed a hero. Before the week is out, his life as the son of a peasant farmer is changed forever when he is escorted to St Petersburg to take up his new position – as bodyguard to Alexei Romanov, the only son of Tsar Nicholas II. “The House of Special Purpose” is a novel about a young man ripped from a loving home and thrust into the heart of a dying empire.
