    The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell – Robert Dugoni

    A novel that, if it doesn’t cross entirely over into John Irving territory, certainly nestles in close to the border.”  Sam Hill always saw the world through different eyes.  Born with red pupils, he was called “Devil Boy” or Sam “Hell” by his classmates; “God’s will” is what his mother called his ocular albinism.  Her words were of little comfort, but Sam persevered, buoyed by his mother’s devout faith, his father’s practical wisdom, and his two other misfit friends.  Forty years later, Sam, a small-town eye doctor, is no longer certain anything was by design, especially not the tragedy that caused him to turn his back on his friends, his hometown, and the life he’d always known.  Running from the pain, eyes closed, served little purpose.  Now, as he looks back on his life, Sam embarks on a journey that will take him halfway around the world.  This time, his eyes are wide open, bringing into clear view what changed him, defined him, and made him so afraid, until he can finally see what truly matters.

    The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

    A former POW comes home from the Vietnam war a changed and volatile man.  When he loses yet another job, he makes an impulsive decision to move his family to Alaska, where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier.  Leni, a 13-year old girl, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, dares to hope that a new land will lead to a better future for her family.  Her mother, Cora, will do anything and go anywhere for the man she loves, even if it means following him into the unknown.  At first, Alaska seems to be the answer to their prayers.  In a wild, remote corner of the state, they find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women.  The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the locals make up for the family’s lack of preparation and dwindling resources.  But as winter approaches and darkness descends on Alaska, the family begins to fracture and soon the perils outside pale in comparison to threats from within.  In their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in 18 hours of night, they learn the terrible truth, they are on their own, in the wild, there is no one to save them but themselves.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!  I know I am jumping ahead of the game but it is never too soon to spread some Holiday cheer. We had an AWESOME Thanksgiving party again this year.  For those of you that did not attend the Thanksgiving party let me share some exciting news regarding our BOOK OF FAME.  You voted in 2 more members to the book, Kathy Britt and me. I thank you a from the bottom of my heart for this humbling recognition.

     Now that we are all sufficiently feed with turkey and the trimmings, we can really get down to some holiday madness. Jane Edwards and Barbara Goodman have put together a great lineup for the month of December with a variety of activities that we hope will spark your interest.  The club is more than just a once a month meeting.  Your participation will continue to bring life into the club, build fellowship and enjoyment to our lives. Read on and join in the festivities for the month and bring a friend or two!

    We especially want all of us to celebrate together at our upcoming Annual Christmas Party at Pine Lakes County Club on Friday Dec 6th.  Deadline to get tickets is at the monthly meeting on Dec. 3rd.  Please contact me ASAP if you do not have your tickets and you intend to come to the party.  You can pay at the meeting or at the door. Since I need to notify Pine Lakes as to the number of attendees on Monday 12/2 before the monthly meeting. I need to get an idea of how many of you are still interested in attending this Holiday tradition.   Come dressed in your holiday best as we are going to party at our holiday buffet dinner and dance to DJ Rick Ramos. There will be door prizes and lots of fun for all.   All members are welcome to come for $40 and bring guests for $45.  Contact Elena 843-443-5218 for tickets. 

    Have a Healthy Happy Holiday Season!
