I haven't written about my book club for a while, so I thought I would share our most recent book. Today, we discussed Cutting for Stone, by Abraham Verghese. I usually try to select our books using Amazon recommendations, or suggestions from friends. I had heard good things about this book, and had it on my list for early next year. However, when our library was not able to get two of the books I had requested from inter-library loan, I moved this book to the top of the list. That meant, I was reading it along with the ladies, instead of reading ahead, as is my preference.
Our book club is one of the small groups in our church, and I am very blessed to be able to share this time with a special group of wise, strong, smart, "seasoned", women every two weeks. They are all a bit older than I, and I have found that I treasure our time together.
Today, Jane and Jessie came wearing matching holiday turtlenecks, by accident, of course. I thought they were so cute that I had to get their picture.
