Mostly Literary Fiction Book Group Discussion of The Hand that First Held Mine by Maggie O'Farrell


Lexie Sinclair yearns for more than her parents’ genteel country life in England. She makes her way to the city, where she meets a magazine editor who introduces her to the thrilling world of Bohemian postwar London. When she becomes pregnant, she doesn’t hesitate to have the baby on her own. Later, in present-day London, a young painter named Elina dizzily navigates the first weeks of motherhood, nearly dying in labor. Her boyfriend recovers lost memories that reveal connections between these two stories.
