‘The One-in-a-Million Boy’  by Monica Wood.

The story of your life never starts at the beginning. Don’t they teach you anything at school?

So says 104-year-old Ona to the 11-year-old boy who’s been sent to help her out every Saturday morning. As he refills the bird feeders and tidies the garden shed, Ona tells him about her long life, from first love to second chances. Soon she’s confessing secrets she has kept hidden for decades.
One Saturday, the boy doesn’t show up. Ona starts to think he’s not so special after all, but then his father arrives on her doorstep, determined to finish his son’s good deed. The boy’s mother is not so far behind. Ona is set to discover that the world can surprise us at any age, and that sometimes sharing a loss is the only way to find ourselves again.

About the Book Group…..

Our  ‘Women of the Church’  Book Discussion Group & Potluck meet
once a month from September to June. The book group is open to any woman who likes to read and laugh, and laugh we do!

Members can host us in their hoshadow_imgmes or we can meet in the church Fellowship Hall.  Everyone contributes a bit of their culinary capabilities each month and we feast together just before our discussions commense.   Our time together usually runs from 5:30-8:00 pm.

We read a wide variety of books chosen from suggestions from everyone in the group. Some titles from the past include Three Cups of Tea, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Road, Suite Francais, Here if You Need Me, The Double Bind, The Book Thief, Couldn’t Keep it to Myself: Testimonies of our Imprisoned Sisters, and Nobody’s Fool, just to name a view.

The Dorothy Alling Memorial Library assists us with obtaining multiple copies, so not everyone has to purchase a book.

Each month the book chosen has a facilitator, however, the discussion is very relaxed, and we encourage woman to join us even if they haven’t read the book. Watch the church bulletin, the bulletin board and this page for the date and location of each discussion.
