Hello ladies.

We had an intimate and enjoyable gathering at our book discussion of The Winter Sea. The book was enjoyed by all who read it. Donna hosted and treated us with delicious goodies. Monique chose this month’s book. It is I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai. With those in attendance at the discussion, we also chose the March book read as well. It is a bit long so thought we would also share the book for those who would appreciate a head start. It is The Seamstress by Frances De Pontes Peebles. Joni highly recommended this book. She said that even though it is a bit long it is an easy read. Personally I am excited about both reads and am looking forward to getting into some engaging reads. Hope that all of you are as well. Please take a look at who I have sent this out to and if I have missed someone please email them as these are all the addresses I had. Hope to see you all at Monique’s in March.

The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley

Selected by Donna Minter


History has all but forgotten…In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown.

Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write.

But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth-the ultimate betrayal-that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her…
