The second suggestion for May in the Josefinas’ Book Club depicts precisely this: the story of two friends separated by a huge age gap who cross paths unexpectedly, and come together to save a venue the community cherishes: the lido.
"The Lido" by Libby Page lets us know how a 26-year-old journalist, miserable with her boring life, comes to help a 80-year-old woman preserve a venue that she cares about so deeply. This friendship ends up having a huge impact on both their lives, and many other people, and shows us that it's never too late to fight for what we believe or for our dreams.
"The Lido" is a light, fluid reading, perfect to enjoy on the terrace or the garden, especially now the sun bathes us more frequently. This is a story written by a woman who celebrates the power of women and reminds us that even if we don't always feel it, we are not alone and there are friendships who deserve to be preserved, regardless of numbers, birthdates, or any kind of prejudice.
