Book Club - Evidence Not Seen

Due to hectic schedules, we did meet with our book club until October of this year.  (Yes, behind but catching up on this month!)  For this meeting we read Evidence Not Seen by Darlene Deibler Rose.

This is a true story of a woman who was a missionary with her  husband in the Phillipines in the late 1930s when war broke out.  The Japanese eventually came to their island and they were made prisoners of war.  This is the story of what happened.  

While it was a challenging book to read, her faith is encouraging and compelling.  The more that was taken from her, the more she came to recognize how much God meant to her.  It is truly a beautiful story.  Note that if you are reading it to a younger child, you may want to pre read to decide if the subject matter is appropriate for him/her.

We've added a new member to our group.  Its always fun to have more people join us.  
Our snack was simple after reading such a sobering book.  Bananas and water.  Two items in the book that were cause for great thanks!
I do highly recommend this book.  I'm happy to answer questions about it too.  Not just as a read aloud either. A great book for  adults too.
