We’ll be discussing “Chasing Fireflies, A Novel of Discovery” by Charles Martin and enjoying a time of fellowship.

About the Book:
“They have one summer to find what was lost long ago. ‘Never settle for less than the truth’ she told him. But when you don’t even know your real name, the truth gets a little complicated. It can nestle so close to home it’s hard to see. It can even flourish inside a lie. And as Chase Walker discovered, learning the truth about who you are can be elusive – and as magical – as chasing fireflies on a summer night. A haunting story about fishing, baseball, home cooking, and other matters of life and death.”

About the book:
In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teen-aged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.
