Friends, Food, Fellowship and Fiction

The Women’s Book Club met this morning to discuss, The Winnowing Season (Amish Vines & Orchards #2) by Cindy Woodsmall

The Winnowing Season July 13 2013.001

We had a wonderful time this morning.  Of course we ALWAYS have a wonderful time, but today I think we could have stayed all day laughing and talking and sharing our thoughts about this book.  Carolyn said she had recently read an article about how laughter released endorphins in our brains…if that’s so then our brains are full of endorphins right now!

For those of you who haven’t been to one of our meetings, we always start with breakfast, with each person bringing something.  Well, today I thought I would just list the food we had to make your mouth water and give you a good reason to start coming to our meetings. 🙂  We had:  2 different breakfast casseroles, hashbrown casserole, bacon (I think it was turkey bacon), banana nut bread, cream cheese sausage squares, fruit bowl (cantelope, strawberries, grapes, blueberries),  biscuits and jellies, juice, water and coffee! It was all delicious! (The only thing missing was grits!  We are Southern girls after all , and it’s almost a sin if you don’t have grits for breakfast!) 🙂

Carmen did another wonderful job on the handouts she gives us with questions to discuss.  Each handout had it’s own set of questions and we had 11…we only got to #6, but I think with all the discussion we covered just about everything except the strange happenings with Rhoda and the voices she’s hearing and the strange couple that lives in the woods.  We wonder what’s going on, but we figure that Cindy has that all taken care of in Book 3, For Every Season, that releases on August 20, 2013.  We can’t wait to see how Cindy wraps up this whole story.  Some of us are on “Team Jacob” and some on “Team Samuel” in regards to who we want to see Rhoda end up with.  It was a very lively discussion!!!!

Carmen thinks that with the late release of Book 3, we won’t have enough time to get it in and out to everyone to read in time for our September 14, 2013 meeting, so she’s in the process of deciding between two other books for the September meeting and then we’ll pick back up with, For Every Season, for our November  9th meeting.  We all wish Cindy had been with us for this meeting, I bet she would have just sat back and laughed and laughed at all of our opinions about the characters and what they should and shouldn’t do and what’s going on and what’s going to happen next!

We have two new members, Lindsey and Ella, who’s going to join us in September and we would love to have you!  If you come to our church or if you live close to us in Winterville, GA, we would love to have you join us.  Just drop by the Media Center or email us at or comment on this post and we’ll fill you in on all the details.

I’ll post the information about our September meeting as soon as Carmen decides on our book.  If you would like to host the meeting just let Carmen know or come by the Media Center.

God’s blessings on all of you! And happy reading!
