Lewisville Book Club

February 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Curious to see what the current book club read is?
February’s book for the Lewisville Community Library’s Book Club is “Gap Creek” by Robert Morgan.
Summary:

Young Julie Harmon works “hard as a man,” they say, so hard that at times she’s not sure she can stop. People depend on her to slaughter the hogs and nurse the dying. People are weak, and there is so much to do. At just seventeen she marries and moves down into the valley of Gap Creek, where perhaps life will be better.

But Julie and Hank’s new life in the valley, in the last years of the nineteenth century, is more complicated than the couple ever imagined. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what to fear most—the fires and floods or the flesh-and-blood grifters, drunks, and busybodies who insinuate themselves into their new life. To survive, they must find out whether love can keep chaos and madness at bay. Their struggles with nature, with work, with the changing century, and with the disappointments and triumphs of their union make Gap Creek a timeless story of a marriage.

If you are interested in joining the Lewisville Community Library’s Book Club, please call 803-789-7800 for more information.
Next Meeting: February 9, 2023 at 1 p.m.
