A Different Kind of Book Club


This week, I am hosting/moderating an online book discussion about Lisa Verge Higgins’ novel, Random Acts of Kindness:

With the remnants of her past rattling in the trunk of her Chevy, Jenna Elliott abandons her Seattle home determined to start life anew. Her journey compels her to the door of two friends: Claire, an ex-Buddhist nun and cancer survivor, eager to escape her overbearing family for what may be her last chance to fulfill a dream; and Nicole, a professional Life Coach who can’t even control her own teenage son. But what starts out as an impulsive road trip soon becomes an inexorable journey to their past, as the women grapple with who they were, who they are, and the strange twists that have now set them on the road to their hometown of Pine Lake. There, Jenna discovers that her random act of kindness has rippled out into the world like a stone dropped into a deep pond, coming back to rock her life—and those of her friends—in ways they never expected.

It’s a little different than most book clubs. We don’t expect you to have read the book. In fact, we just want to encourage people to come over and meet the author and visit with others about how this idea–random acts of kindness–has played out in your life.

I’ll be posting questions for Lisa Verge Higgins midmorning every day, and in the afternoon she’ll be asking us to share on topics close to her heart and the heart of the book. And what Cafe week would be complete without a book giveaway? Leave a comment on any of the discussion threads and you’ll be entered for a drawing!

If you enjoy fiction, I hope you’ll spend this week with me at the Women’s Fiction Cafe.

    • Yes–just click on the link and it’ll take you right there! I should also make it clear–comment on the threads at the café. 🙂 Just edited my post to make sure that doesn’t throw anyone off.
