Tuesday Book Club

Tuesday, October 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The book for this month is Color of Lightning (F) by Paulette Jiles – Freed Kentucky slave Britt Johnson ventures west into Texas with his wife Mary and their three children where they hope to build upon the dreams that carried them from the Confederate South to this new land of possibility. But while Britt is away establishing a business, these dreams are abruptly shattered by a brutal Indian raid upon the settlement. Britt returns to face the unthinkable: his friends and family gone, all slain or captured. He vows he will not rest until his family is whole again. As he embarks on a journey of faith and courage, Britt finds himself embroiled in the battle between the U.S. government and the Native Americans whose land, freedom, and culture are threatened.
