This month, I have not just one, but TWO great book recommendations for my Book Club readers.
The first is about a woman in transition, she’s been a wife and mother, executing both roles with beauty and grace but now that the children are grown she feels empty and disconnected. Remembrance is a book that will help ALL of us remember the reason for the season!
The second is an anthology of Christmas romances, spanning ages, cultures and geography. It’s the kind of book that makes you feel like love will prevail no matter the circumstances. A Season to Celebrate is just the kind of book we need for all the warm and fuzzy holiday feels!
Each will make great gifts for yourself or for wrapping up for someone else. I hope you enjoy them both!
by Mary Monroe
Beatrice Powell, happily married mother of three adult children, is the consummate party maven, but after years of hosting large gatherings for family and friends, she finds herself simply going through the motions, and feeling disconnected from those she loves.
Oddly, she finds a bit of peace volunteering at a local soup kitchen, especially when in the company of a homeless man she’s befriended there. His sensitivity and his story may be the inspiration she needs to find her way back to gratitude this Christmas season.
What does Christmas really mean? If you find yourself asking this question from time to time, Remembrance will help you with the answer.
I’ll use all those book review adjectives like “Uplifting,” “Heartwarming,” and “Inspiring,” on Remembrance. It’s a fine read, from New York Times bestselling author, Monroe; absolutely perfect for the holiday season!
