Not the Bestseller Book Club
The Well and the Mine
By Gin Phillips
welcome. Our book club was established for two reasons: first to
give us (Inkwellians) an excuse to talk to one another about books, and
second to highlight lesser known gems that won't appear on bestseller
lists. Michelle and Kathleen welcome all readers to join our
conversations about books. We’ll be meeting monthly at the Inkwell, and complimentary refreshments will be served.
A novel of warmth and true feeling, The Well
and the Mine explores the value of community, charity, family, and
hope that we can give each other during a time of hardship.

Tess Moore sits on her back porch and watches a woman toss a baby into
her family’s well without a word. This shocking act of violence sets in
motion a chain of events that forces Tess and her older sister Virgie to
look beyond their own door and learn the value of kindness and lending a
helping hand. As Tess and Virgie try to solve the mystery of the well,
an accident puts their seven-year-old brother’s life in danger, forcing
the Moore family to come to a new understanding of the power of love and
compassion. Monday, April 26, 7:00 PM

The war raged across the galaxy.
Billions had died, billions more were doomed. Moons, planets, the very
stars themselves, faced destruction, cold-blooded, brutal, and worse,
random. The Idirans fought for their Faith; the Culture for its moral
right to exist. Principles were at stake. There could be no surrender.

Mississippi, Huck is forced to ponder the nature of friendship and to
find a sense of his own moral vision.
