Another Great Meeting-Another Great Book Choice!

Our book club meeting on Saturday was really good as usual. We had a full group, including a new member-Welcome Sandy! I was just telling Lucie the other day-if we get any bigger, we may have to start looking for another place to meet. THAT is a good thing! Lucie and I are so excited! It is so nice to read a book and then get together with friends and discuss the book together. That is exactly what The Chick Lit Book Club does. We also get the chance to interview the authors from time to time, and we consider that a real privilege! You know what makes it even more special? The authors consider it a real privilege to be interviewed by us as well! I love that!
The next book selection is one that I have been hearing nothing but GREAT things about. It is "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers. I have already started reading and I am looking forward to diving deeper into this new adventure.
Here is a little description of what the book is about....

California’s gold country, 1850. A time when men sold their souls for a bag of gold and women sold their bodies for a place to sleep. Angel expects nothing from men but betrayal. Sold into prostitution as a child, she survives by keeping her hatred alive. And what she hates most are the men who use her, leaving her empty and dead inside. Then she meets Michael Hosea. A man who seeks his Father’s heart in everything, Michael Hosea obeys God’s call to marry Angel and to love her unconditionally. Slowly, day by day, he defies Angel’s every bitter expectation until, despite her resistance her frozen heart begins to thaw. But with her unexpected softening come overwhelming feelings of unworthiness and fear. And so Angel runs. Back to the darkness, away from her husband’s pursuing love, terrified of the truth she can no longer deny: Her final healing must come from the One who loves her even more than Michael Hosea does…the One who will never let her go. A life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love.

I hope you will pick up a copy of this book and join us at our next meeting on April 30th at Starbucks.
We will be reading half for the month of April and the remaining half for the month of May-because the book is so thick, and we don't want to rush through it.
Happy Reading**

A Facelift for March

With that I have your attention now?
That is actually the title of our book selection for March. Facelift by Leanna Ellis.
Here is a little about the book:

A ‘can do’ kind of woman, who runs her own business and raises her teenage daughter alone, takes into her home her ex-mother-in-law after a botched facelift. She turns Kaye’s world upside down. Kaye receives her own emotional facelift when she learns joy isn’t tacking on a happy face but relying on her sovereign God who has a plan for her life.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, March 26th-11:00 at Starbucks. Anyone is welcome-even if you have not read this book for the month, come join us and get in on the discussion. You can find out what the next book choice will be, purchase that book, start reading it and when you come to next month's meeting you will know what to expect. We are always taking new members!!!
Until we meet again**
Happy Reading
