Good Book

I’ve always enjoyed books by Kristin Hannah, and her newest one, “Nightingale” is one of her best. The book is a story of two sisters growing up in an idyllic childhood in Paris. But life quickly changes when Hitler’s Nazi’s march in one day to occupy Paris. Soon hardships set in throughout France and the sisters take different paths in coping with the occupation. One soon finds herself working with the underground while the other is trying to just cope with life with her daughter and
her husband, and the hardship and dangers of living under the Nazi’s thumb. This is a book that is a hard to lay down book. If you like a historical background, along with a great story, this one is for you.

The library is fun for all ages!

Scenes from our two May parties and from our coffee and conversation day. We made our mothers a washer necklace for Mothers Day, played spring Bingo for prizes and had cupcakes. At coffee and conversation we had cherry bars and scones with coffee and had a great visit.
