Since September rolled around, I’ve been participating in book clubs that have read Copper Star. Roughly two per week! Scheduled all the way into January.
It is such a privilege to attend these groups. Each group has its own personality, differing in age groups and “time of life”–but they share a love of the written word. I’ve been “wow-ed” by the depth of insight, thoughtful questions, and warmth extended to a first-time author.
It’s also interesting to me that each group takes a different angle of the book. Some are intrigued by the facts of war, others by the characters, others by the historical setting. A few by the copper mines! It reminds me that reading a book is a subjective journey.
One of the biggests blessings of the book–and one I hadn’t anticipated–is the pleasure of connecting with readers. I feel grateful to each one.
