Events at Elim Mennonite Church, Grunthal



ext Book Club:  Monday, October st at 7pm

 

Next book:  Hello to all readers,

Our next book club date will be early October, the tentative date is October 2. Several people will be away on holidays in September so we will delay the book club. Our next book will be by a Grunthal author, Karen Emilson. We will be reading her book Be Still The Water. Karen Emilson will be our guest speaker at the next book club; she will be speaking about the book and about being a writer.
Her book is available as an ebook, at Amazon.ca for $3.85, or we can buy it directly from her at 18.00 each. If you would like me to buy a book for you please let me know.
It is a book of the early Icelandic settlers settled along the shores Lake Manitoba, Be Still the Water brings us into the fold of the Gudmundsson Family--immigrants determined to begin life anew in the Icelandic farming and fishing community of Siglunes.

At the heart of the novel is dutiful Asta, the middle daughter who lives in the shadow of her siblings--fiery Signy, headstrong Leifur and sweet, naive Freyja. When Freyja goes missing, Asta embarks on a quest to bring her sister home. She tells the family's story some seventy years later, while on her deathbed, finally discovering the truth of what happened on those fateful days that set the course for her life and the lives of everyone she loved.

Loosely inspired by area events, this is an emotional, slow-burning story of family love and sacrifice, of secrets revealed and promises broken--told in the spirit of the Icelandic Sagas.
