Book club - God's Smuggler & The Hiding Place

Just a quick post on our last two books.  We are getting a late start to book club due to busy fall schedules and look forward to starting again soon.

We read God's Smuggler.  A true story of a man who smuggled Bibles behind the Iron Curtain.  Fascinating story and encouraging too.  I would highly recommend it.  

As always, the food was delicious and tied into the countries that Brother Andrew lived.  Pie, nutella with little crepes, pita chips and hummus, cookies.  I'm not doing a good job describing as it has been too long and I've just forgotten.

Our last book, was The Hiding Place.  Wow, what a story.  It has been some time since I read it and this is a story that would just never get old.  To read about all that she experienced and her faith in the midst of challenges that most of us could never imagine.  What an encouraging book.  A great reminder to give thanks in all things.  Very highly recommend though not for younger children as some of the material is quite difficult to read.  
Lovely centerpiece.
Yes, we do eat well at these fun gatherings!  Strawberries to dip in a yummy chocolate sauce, eclairs, cream puffs and yummy tarts in chocolate and fruit.
We enjoy this fun time to discuss books and be with friends.  Looking forward to starting up again soon.

Have you read any good books lately?  We are looking for some new titles to read this year and would love some recommendations.
