I'm So Excited About Our Next Book Club!

February was created for leisurely reads, stories that capture your heart, and thought-provoking conversations between friends.  And that's why I've chosen Becoming Mrs. Lewis: The Improbable Love Story of Joy Davidman and C.S. Lewis as our first 2019 Book Club selection.

I'm a great big fan of historical fiction.  And hands down, Patti Callahan's beautiful saga of the intimate relationship between C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman is tops on my list.  Captivating, enthralling, all those good things.  The dialogue is so real and rich, their journey into the depths of intellectual and spiritual truths so mesmerizing.  And yes, love finds a way although there are numerous twists and turns that finally take them there.

You won't want the book to end.  I promise.

If you're a fan of C.S. Lewis, improbable long distance friendships, a glimpse into the world of writers, sparkling and significant conversations, or later-in-life love stories, this is your book, my friend.

Here's how it works -
1.  Grab your copy of Becoming Mrs. Lewis at your library or ...
Buy a hardcover / $14.43

Buy a Kindle edition / $12.99

2.  Read at your leisure and then join us here on the blog beginning Thursday, February 21st for four weekly gabfests.

3.  You don't have to sign up or even read the book to participate in the discussion.  For sure, there's room for you at the table.  Watch for a gift card giveaway in the midst of our dialogue.  And yes, first time commenters, the welcome mat is out for you!

4.  Spread the word to your friends, fans, followers, blog readers, and book club cronies.


Our first two book clubs last year were a blast ... you guys were so enthusiastic and brought so much of your wise / humorous / vulnerable selves to the table!  This is what it all looked like -
Invitation to Solitude and Silence: Experiencing God's Transforming Presence
by Ruth Haley Barton {February}

The Listening Life: Embracing Attentiveness in a World of Distraction
by Adam McHugh {April}


'It's a lovely thing to be a reader.  It's even lovelier to be a reader among readers ... it's what happens after I read that's changed my life ... the kinship with other readers who loved the story and the delight of occupying its world with them.  Little wonder, then, that I leave my book club's meetings feeling like I've been plugged into a power outlet, my mind humming with energy and ideas - my now-fuller heart just as abuzz.'
