Winghill’s First Book Club – Join In!

We are so pleased to announce the start of our book club! Here’s how it will work. We’ll all start by reading the same book, and on a specific day near the end of April we’ll meet up over on Winghill’s Facebook page to discuss! Sound like a plan?

We sent out an email and posted on Facebook asking everyone to vote between three different books. The winner is The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. We’re so excited!

Here is a short synopsis courtesy of Amazon:

The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger has her questioning what’s been missing in her life. And when she’s forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.

Are you going to join us in reading our new book?

If you are going to participate by reading The Language of Flowers, please read to the end of the novel by April 25th.

On April 28th we will post a few reading questions for you to answer and announce the date of the live Facebook book discussion as well.

Alright, now it’s time to find a cozy little spot to curl up with a cup of tea and a new book…
