Description:
 Join us each month for a lively discussion of titles by debut authors. We meet the 2nd Monday at 10:30am. January's title is To the Bright Edge of the World by Eowyn Ivey. Summary: Leaving his wife, Sophie, behind in the Vancouver barracks, U.S. Army Colonel Allen Forrester embarks on an expedition to map the interior of the newly acquired Alaska Territory. As Forrester and his crew venture into the wilderness, encountering danger, hardship, and astounding natural beauty, free-spirited Sophie chafes against the restrictions placed upon military spouses, recording her experiences in her diary. With its sympathetic characters and lyrical depictions of the 19th-century American frontier, this historical epistolary novel may appeal to fans of Diane Smith's Letters from Yellowstone and Pictures from an Expedition. -- Description by Gillian Speace.
