We are from Darien. Our group of 8-10 ladies has been meeting for about 10 years.
We meet each month for brunch and lively discussions that often involve tears and/or giggles.
We read mostly Christian fiction but have enjoyed some great nonfiction books such as "Traveling Light" by Max Lucado, "Three Cups of Tea" by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin, "Gifted Hands" by Ben Carson with Cecil Murphey, "Same Kind of Different as Me" by Ron Hall and Denver Moore, and "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.
One of the books we did not like was "The Shack" by William P. Young. Many of our members thought it was offensive in the way it portrayed God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Worst excuse for not reading the book was because "I threw it in the garbage." That person really found the book offensive.
Next up: "Without a Word" by Jill Kelly, the wife of Jim Kelly, retired Hall of Fame quarterback. It is the story of their terminally ill son, Hunter, and his effect on people in his short life of eight years, during which he doesn't speak a word.
