This quarter’s book club will discuss The Wife’s Story from Pulitzer Prize winning author Carol Shield’s two novel book, Happenstance: Two Novels in One About a Marriage in Transition. This story explores an intimate portrait of a marriage through the eyes of the wife, Brenda Bowman, who is also a quilter.
