Sequoya's Thursday Book Group hosts a discussion of Warlight by Michael Ondaatje. In 1945, just after World War II, fourteen-year-old Nathaniel and his older sister Rachel stay behind in London when their parents move to Singapore, leaving them in the care of a mysterious figure named The Moth. They suspect he might be a criminal, and they grow both more convinced and less concerned as they come to know his eccentric crew of friends. But are they really what and who they claim to be? And what does it mean when the siblings' mother returns after months of silence without their father? A dozen years later, Nathaniel begins to uncover all he didn't know and understand in that time.
