The Civil War has ended, but for the ladies of the White Oak plantation, life cannot return to the way that it had been. With those she loved gone or embittered by the harsh realities of war, Jo Weatherly must struggle to rebuild her life, learning new skills from those once taken for granted and to rebuild her shaken faith. Neither is life easy for Lizzie, once a slave and now free, as she tries to hold her small family together. Lynn Austin weaves together the lives and voices of the women of the White Oak in her novel, "All Things New." The North Channel Book Club will meet on Wednesday, May 22 at 10 am in the meeting room to discuss Lynn Austin's novel, "All Things New ."
The next book club selection for June will be "The Lighthouse " by P. D. James.
