Book Club for the month of March is being postponed due to the current health concern with COVID-19. We will re-evaluate over the next coming weeks. The next proposed meeting date is Saturday, May 30, 2020 at 5pm at Dorothy Pender’s house. Her book selection is Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano. We will, of course, re-evaluate through the coming weeks. Take care all.
Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano (Goodreads Author) 4.26 · Rating details · 19,335 ratings · 3,295 reviewsOne summer morning, twelve-year-old Edward Adler, his beloved older brother, his parents, and 183 other passengers board a flight in Newark headed for Los Angeles. Among them is a Wall Street wunderkind, a young woman coming to terms with an unexpected pregnancy, an injured vet returning from Afghanistan, a septuagenarian business tycoon, and a free-spirited woman running away from her controlling husband. And then, tragically, the plane crashes. Edward is the sole survivor.
Edward’s story captures the attention of the nation, but he struggles to find a place for himself in a world without his family. He continues to feel that a piece of him has been left in the sky, forever tied to the plane and all of his fellow passengers. But then he makes an unexpected discovery–one that will lead him to the answers of some of life’s most profound questions: When you’ve lost everything, how do find yourself? How do you discover your purpose? What does it mean not just to survive, but to truly live?
Dear Edward is at once a transcendent coming-of-age story, a multidimensional portrait of an unforgettable cast of characters, and a breathtaking illustration of all the ways a broken heart learns to love again.
