It is official. The Friday Morning Bookclub’s favorite book for 2010 is….. The Linnet Bird by Linda Holeman. This makes sense as it is also the only book that was voted 5 omelets on a scale of 1-5. The Linnet Bird takes place in the 1820’s in Liverpool, England. After the death of her mother, 11-year-old Linny Glow is forced into prostitution by her step father. Linny eventually escapes this life and flees to India on the “fishing fleet” a boat filled with young women heading to India to meet wealthy, suitable, available men. The Linnet Bird was beautifully written and a wonderful book club choice. A must read!

It was a tight race, and coming in second is Cutting For Stone. Third place goes to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Here are the complete results:

  The Linnet Bird 19.4% (13 votes)
