Book Club         

  Please join us on Wednesday, November 28 at 7 p.m. in the RHUC Chapel to discuss THE ART OF HEARING HEARTBEATS by Jan-Philipp Sendker, a German writer. All are welcome! No previous book club experience is required - just a love of reading and talking about books with others. Here is a short synopsis of the novel to whet your appetite:

                    ‘A poignant and inspirational love story set in Burma, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats spans the decades between the 1950s and the present.  When a successful New York lawyer suddenly disappears without a trace, neither his wife nor his daughter Julia has any idea where he might be…until they find a love letter he wrote many years ago, to a Burmese woman they have never heard of. Intent on solving the mystery and coming to terms with her father’s past, Julia decides to travel to the village where the woman lived. There she uncovers a tale of unimaginable hardship, resilience, and passion that will reaffirm the reader’s belief in the power of love to move mountains.’

                    For more information, please speak to the group's facilitator, Sandra Loughton, or speak to Deb Fratin in the church office at 905.884.1301, Ext. 5.
