Cost: $20.00 Life Enrichment Book Club Thursday, January 22 Noon at Café LaBelle War Brides by Helen Bryan. As war moves ever closer, the sleepy English village of Crowmarsh Priors settles into a new sort of normal: The nightly German air raids become grimly mundane. Rationing curtails every comfort. Men leave to fight and die. And five women forge a bond of friendship that will change their lives forever. With the hardships of World War II intensifying every day, the women band together to defeat formidable enemies and find remarkable strength within themselves. It is a war-forged loyalty certain to endure years. When four of the women return for a celebration fifty years later, their mission is not simply to commemorate or remember, but to confront a traitor whose actions cost countless lives and to avenge one of their own at last. No registration is necessary and new members are always welcome.
