Book Club

Winter garden book 1

Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah Library Book Group kicks off New Year with the vividly imagined tale.

The Library Book Group Zoom discussion of Kristin Hannah’s Winter Garden on Thursday, Jan. 20, 6-7 p.m.

The book is a story about two estranged sisters who find themselves pulled together when their father falls ill. Together by his deathbed, they listen to a captivating, mysterious love story that spans sixty-five years and moves from frozen, war-torn Leningrad to modern-day Alaska. The sisters learn the secret of their mother’s past and uncover a truth so terrible it will shake the foundation of their family and change who they think they are.
