CROSSCITY WOMEN’S BOOKCLUB
Do you LOVE to read?? So do we! We invite you to come and fellowship each month with new friends and a good book.
Bookclub is free and a monthly commitment is not required. We just ask that you read the book before you come and you bring it with you.
October’s BookClub selection is Secrets She Kept by Cathy Gohlke. BookClub is meeting on October 31st from 6:30-8:00pm in the Frappe House on CrossCity’s campus
The secret a mother was forbidden to share . . . the consequences a daughter could not redeem—but will risk everything in her attempt.
All her life, Hannah Sterling longed for a close relationship with her estranged mother. Following Lieselotte’s death, Hannah unlocks secrets of her mother’s mysterious past, including the discovery of a grandfather living in Germany.
Thirty years earlier, Lieselotte’s father, ascending the ranks of the Nazi party, demands a marriage for his daughter to help advance his career. But Lieselotte is in love—and her beloved Lukas secretly works against the Reich. How far will her father go to achieve his goal?
Both Hannah’s and Lieselotte’s stories unfold as Hannah travels to Germany to meet her grandfather, who hides wartime secrets of his own. Longing for connection, yet shaken by all she uncovers, Hannah must decide if she can atone for her family’s tragic past, and how their legacy will shape her future.
November’s Bookclub selection is In the Shadow of Denali by Tracie Peterson & Kimberley Woodhouse . Bookclub is meeting on November 21st from 6:30-8:00pm in the Frappe House on CrossCity’s campus
December’s Bookclub selection is Chasing Sunsets by Karen Kingsbury. Bookclub is meeting on December 19th from 6:30-8:00pm in the Frappe House on CrossCity’s campus
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes the second novel in the Angels Walking series about divine intervention and the trials and triumphs of life: the dramatic story of a woman desperate to find deeper meaning in her life.
Growing up in a comfortable home, Mary Catherine wanted for nothing. Though she loves her wealthy parents, their lifestyle never appealed to her. Instead, Mary Catherine pursues meaning through charity work, giving away a part of herself but never giving away her heart.
Now Mary Catherine lives in Los Angeles with her roommate, Sami, and volunteers at a local youth center with baseball coach Tyler Ames and LA Dodgers pitcher Marcus Dillinger. Despite Mary Catherine’s intention to stay single, she finds herself drawing close to Marcus, and their budding romance offers an exciting life she never dreamed of. That is, until she receives devastating news from her doctor. News that alters her future and forces her to make a rash decision.
Inspirational and moving, Chasing Sunsets is the story of one woman’s deep longings of the soul, and the sacrifices she’s willing to make in search of healing.
