July Book Club Selection

Our July selection for the book club will be, The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom! I have talked to many people that have read this book and they really enjoyed it. I decided that it was time I read it and really enjoyed it too! Here is a bit about the book:

Corrie ten Boom was a woman admired the world over for her courage, her forgiveness, and her memorable faith. In World War II, she and her family risked their lives to help Jews escape the Nazis, and their reward was a trip to Hitler's concentration camps. But she survived and was released--as a result of a clerical error--and now shares the story of how faith triumphs over evil. For thirty-five years Corrie's dramatic life story, full of timeless virtues, has prepared readers to face their own futures with faith, relying on God's love to overcome, heal, and restore. Now releasing in a thirty-fifth anniversary edition for a new generation of readers, The Hiding Place tells the riveting story of how a middle-aged Dutch watchmaker became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler's death camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the twentieth century. (end quote)

This book is non-fiction and about 219 pages of reading with no study guide or discussion questions. If you are interested in a Pre-order please contact Kathy. In the next couple of days she will send out information for a pre-order. And as always local libraries and bookstores have some copies available. Sometimes you can even find our monthly book at the $5.00 bookstore in the outlet mall but it's not a guarantee they will have it.

We will no longer be raffling off the book at the meetings due to costs but we will still have door prizes. Remember our June meeting is coming up on June 27th and our July meeting will be July 25th. Hope you all enjoy and can't wait to see you again! Happy Reading!
