March Book Club Selections

1 Mar

Can you believe it is already March?! Whew, this year is flying by fast. Here in middle Georgia the signs of Spring are everywhere — everything is blooming! And the weather has been warm, warm, warm! Perfect for grabbing a book and enjoying the sunshine out of doors. This month my book clubs are reading Still Life by Dani Pettrey (By The Book) and Luther and Katharina by Jody Hedlund (Page Turners). Won’t you join us? We would love to know what you think of these books.

She expected to be laughed at, but crime scene analyst Parker Mitchell hired her outright–and changed her life. But six months ago, when her feelings for Parker became too strong, she left his employ to sort out her heart.

Now, for the first time, Avery is facing the world that rejected her to attend the gallery opening of a photography exhibit and support her best friend, who modeled for the show. But the only image of her friend is a chilling photo of her posing as if dead–and the photographer insists he didn’t take the shot. Worse, her friend can’t be found. She immediately calls Parker for help. As Avery, Parker, and his friends in law enforcement dig into the mystery, they find themselves face-to-face with a relentless and deadly threat.

In the 16th century, nun Katharina von Bora’s fate fell no further than the Abbey. Until she read the writings of Martin Luther.

His sweeping Catholic church reformation—condemning a cloistered life and promoting the goodness of marriage—awakened her desire for everything she’d been forbidden. Including Martin Luther himself.

Despite the fact that the attraction and tension between them is undeniable, Luther holds fast to his convictions and remains isolated, refusing to risk anyone’s life but his own. And Katharina longs for love, but is strong-willed. She clings proudly to her class distinction, pining for nobility over the heart of a reformer. They couldn’t be more different.

But as the world comes tumbling down around them, and with Luther’s threatened life a constant strain, these unlikely allies forge an unexpected bond of understanding, support and love.

Together, they will alter the religious landscape forever.

    I have read the book about Luther and Katerina! It was superb! I’ve had Dani’s book on hold at the library for ages. I’m next in line for the hold. Can’t wait to read it!
