With the cold weather coming Brenda Taylor and I (Ginger) thought it might be fun to do a little reading. So here is the run down.... we will meet every other week starting in January. When we get together we will talk about the book, and spend time together. Each meeting may look different and you will get emails with the details as each meeting approaches. This is strictly for fun! The authors will be Christian but it is fiction! This first book looks like a faster read so come to the first meeting with at least the first 3 chapters read!
Here is the first book:
The Alliance by Jolina Petersheim
When Leora Ebersole sees the small plane crash in her Old Order Mennonite community, she has no idea it's a foreshadowing of things to come. Soon after the young pilot, Moses Hughes, regains consciousness, they realize his instruments were destroyed by the same power outage that killed the electricity at the community store, where Englischers are stranded with dead cell phones and cars that won't start.
Moses offers a sobering theory, but no one can know how drastically life is about to change. With the only self-sustaining food supply in the region, the Pacifist community is forced to forge an alliance with the handful of stranded Englischers in an effort to protect not only the food but their very lives.
In the weeks that follow, Leora, Moses, and the community will be tested as never before, requiring them to make decisions they never thought possible. Whom will they help and whom will they turn away? When the community receives news of a new threat, everyone must decide how far they're willing to go to protect their beliefs and way of life.
You can get this book at Lifeway or on Amazon (available in Kindle, Audio, paperback)
Additional books will be picked as we see our groups pace!
