The Afternoon Book Club will meet in the Bride’s Room on Wednesday April 29 at 1 pm to discuss The Plum Tree by Ellen Marie Wiseman.
A deeply moving and masterfully written story of human resilience and enduring love, The Plum Tree follows a young German woman through the chaos of World War II and its aftermath.
‘Bloom where you’re planted,’ is the advice Christine Bolz receives from her beloved Oma. But seventeen-year-old domestic Christine knows there is a whole world waiting beyond her small German village. It’s a world she’s begun to glimpse through music, books–and through Isaac Bauerman, the cultured son of the wealthy Jewish family she works for. (synopsis from amazon.com)
