Book Club Monday

This week's Book Club Monday is The Charm Bracelet by Viola Shipman.  The story goes like this:

Through an heirloom charm bracelet, three women will rediscover the importance of family and a passion for living as each charm changes their lives.
On her birthday each year, Lolly’s mother gave her a charm, along with the advice that there is nothing more important than keeping family memories alive, and so Lolly’s charm bracelet would be a constant reminder of that love.
Now seventy and starting to forget things, Lolly knows time is running out to reconnect with a daughter and granddaughter whose lives have become too busy for Lolly or her family stories.
But when Arden, Lolly’s daughter, receives an unexpected phone call about her mother, she and granddaughter Lauren rush home. Over the course of their visit, Lolly reveals the story behind each charm on her bracelet, and one by one the family stories help Lolly, Arden, and Lauren reconnect in a way that brings each woman closer to finding joy, love, and faith.
A compelling story of three women and a beautiful reminder of the preciousness of family Viola Shipman's The Charm Bracelet is a keepsake you’ll cherish long after the final page.

This is the first non-fiction book by author Wade Rouse, who is using the pen name Viola Shipman for this story.  I really enjoy Wade's writing.  I recently was lucky enough to interview him on my radio show.  To listen to the interview and learn more about the Charm Bracelet and Wade's other works, please click HERE.
