For the last three years, since I’ve belonged to my current book club, our founder, C, has mentioned Jean Sasson’s Princess each time it’s been her turn to pick. And we’ve managed to thwart or redirect her every time. This last time, she would not be stopped. The Chancellor and C’s best friend A let out audible groans when she conference-called us during one book club meeting to announce her choice. I decided to just throw it back, Bridesmaids style, so I wouldn’t get bogged down. It was quite a lot to swallow, as I note in my full review.
