Since the month is winding down, it's time to look toward our next discussion! What book would you like to read together?

The "rules":

- For our group discussions, let's stick to Christian fiction or non-fiction, please. (Phil. 4:8)

- Multiple suggestions or repeats from previous months are welcome!

And a tip: Older releases are more likely to get the majority of votes because most of us don't buy new or just borrow from libraries.

Now have at it! Suggest away!

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice

Release date: March 27, 2007

Set in 1950s London,The Lost Art of Keeping Secretscenters around Penelope, the wide- eyed daughter of a legendary beauty, Talitha, who lost her husband to the war. Penelope, with her mother and brother, struggles to maintain their vast and crumbling ancestral home—while postwar London spins toward the next decade’s cultural revolution.

Penelope wants nothing more than to fall in love, and when her new best friend, Charlotte, a free spirit in the young society set, drags Penelope into London with all of its grand parties, she sets in motion great change for them all. Charlotte’s mysterious and attractive brother Harry uses Penelope to make his American ex-girlfriend jealous, with unforeseen consequences, and a dashing, wealthy American movie producer arrives with what might be the key to Penelope’s— and her family’s—future happiness.

Vibrant, witty, and filled with vivid historical detail,The Lost Art of Keeping Secretsis an utterly unique debut novel about a time and place just slipping into history.

The Fine Art of Insincerity by Angela Hunt

Three grown Southern sisters have ten marriages between them—and more loom on the horizon—when Ginger, the eldest, wonders if she’s the only one who hasn’t inherited what their family calls “the Grandma Gene”: the tendency to like the casualness of courtship better than the intimacy of marriage. Could it be that her two sisters are fated to serially marry, just like their seven-times wed grandmother, Mrs. Lillian Irene Harper Winslow Goldstein Carey James Bobrinski Gordon George?  It takes a “girls only” weekend, closing up Grandma’s treasured beach house for the last time, for the sisters to really unpack their family baggage, examine their relationship DNA, and discover the true legacy their much-marrying grandmother left behind . . .
