The BEST 9th Episode Ever : "The Dearly Beloved" by Cara Wall
Hey y'all. This is Katie, and I'd like to welcome you back to book club! We have come full circle, back around to me being your book club hostess for the next two weeks! If you remember, in our first two episodes, we discussed The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells. The book we are discussing now is The Dearly Beloved by Cara Wall. This book does have some similar themes to the Ya-Yas -- faith, family, marriage, parenthood, pain and disappointment -- but where Ya-Ya blazes and tickles like the heat of the Louisiana bayou, The Dearly Beloved has a more reverent tone, like the steady, deep reverberations of a church bell.
Despite this book being about two ministers and their wives, I believe anyone could relate to its poignant portrayal of the human experience. In our discussion, we also share openly and honestly about how faith, friendship, love and loss have made us the people we are today.
We hope you will join our discussion. Make us do a happy dance and leave a comment below! There are also plenty of opportunities for you to share with us on social media. You can find us on Instagram at @thebbce and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thebbce.
For now, remember to be the best YOU that YOU can be, because there is only one of YOU! :-)
