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.
September’s Bookclub selection is The List by Robert WhitLow. Bookclub is meeting on September 26th from 6:30-8:00pm in the Frappe House on CrossCity’s campus
In a world of secrets, where evil has reigned for over a hundred years, the power of an ancient covenant will change the life of one man forever.
As a struggling young attorney fresh out of law school, Renny Jacobson pines for the day he can afford the luxuries of the partners in his Charlotte firm. With news of his father’s death and a secret inheritance, Renny’s life will surely change forever. But the clandestine society that provides the inheritance soon threatens to change him in more ways than one.
Renny’s life, and the life of the woman he loves, depend on supernatural deliverance from the curse of The List.
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.
