For September, we will be reading  The Beekeeper's Daughter  by Santa Montefiore. (There are other works with the same title, so note the author). This novel is about a mother and daughter in 20th century, each searching for love, each with her own secrets, not always able to share and comfort. It's a romantic read and thought provoking in its own way, so enjoy it!  Carol Howe will host on Tuesday, September 17th at 6:30 p.m. Address: 1720 Keble Road. Phone 843-901-9013, As usual, let her know if you will be coming, but feel free to show up if there's a last minute change of plans. She will make okra soup and cornbread so please bring an appetizer or dessert.  Planned for October is David MacCullough's  The Pioneers . These are the predominantly New England folk who crossed into the new Ohio Territory beginning in the 1790s. As usual with this author it is well researched and well told.
