Join us from 6pm - 7pm(ish) as we enjoy wine, water and snacks and discuss this month's book choice: When Crickets Cry by Charles Martin. It's free! All are welcome and no reservations needed, just show up!

Book description:

USA TODAY bestseller from the author of The Mountain Between Us, now a major motion picture! A man with a painful past. A child with a doubtful future. And a shared journey toward healing for both their hearts.

It begins on the shaded town square in a sleepy Southern town. A spirited seven-year-old has a brisk business at her lemonade stand. But the little girl's pretty yellow dress can't quite hide the ugly scar on her chest.

Her latest customer, a bearded stranger, drains his cup and heads to his car, his mind on a boat he's restoring at a nearby lake. The stranger understands more about the scar than he wants to admit. And the beat-up bread truck careening around the corner with its radio blaring is about to change the trajectory of both their lives.

Before it's over, they'll both know there are painful reasons why crickets cry . . . and that miracles lurk around unexpected corners.
