The Book Club of First Presbyterian Church of Benton Harbor is excited to announce its upcoming book: Peace Like a River by Leif Enger.

Discussion of the first few chapters of this wonderful book begins on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at 12:15, at the church. We will then meet once a month through March.

From the back of the book: This book is “at once a heroic quest, a tragedy, and a love story, in which ‘what could be unbelievable becomes extraordinary’ (Connie Ogle, The Miami Herald). Leif Enger brings us eleven-year-old Reuben Land, who has a reason to believe in miracles. Along with his sister and father, Reuben finds himself on a cross-country search for his outlaw older brother who has been controversially charged with murder. Their journey unfolds like a revelation, and its conclusion shows how family, love, and faith can stand up to the most terrifying of enemies, the most tragic of fates.”

While this book sounds like heavy reading, it is not. Narrated by eleven-year-old Reuben, it is also humorous and endearing. It is one of the best books this reader has ever read.

If you are interested in joining our Book Club, please let Libby Globensky know. If you need a book, please let Libby know that as well ASAP so she can order you one.

Hope to see you on January 10, 2023!
