Hey mama's!

I have a very special meet up to announce! Special for two reasons. 1. the author of the book, Jim has been kind enough to drive up from San Diego to have a discussion with us! 2. we will be combining this with our sister book club! (OC dinner, wine, and book club) It should lead to a fun lively discussion! Please bring $15. This will cover your pizza, drink, and donation to keep this AWESOME meet up going! Also, there is no corkage fee, so feel free to bring a bottle of wine to share:) Here is a synopsis of the book:

Grand Prize Winner (Fiction) of the 2014 LuckyCinda Book Contest       

Finalist in the 2014 National Indie Excellence Book Awards (Category: Historical Fiction)    

As Roger Connors, a widower with no children, ponders whether to pursue aggressive treatment for his cancer, a cryptic note arrives from a long-lost USAF buddy announcing the visit of an acquaintance from Vietnam. The startling news resurrects ghosts of fallen comrades and haunting memories of the great love he once knew. 

Shocking revelations from his visitor uncover a missing part of Roger's life he never dreamed possible. Peeling back one layer at a time, he delves into a decades-old secret in search of answers and traces of a passion unfulfilled. 

From the jungles of Vietnam through the minefields of the heart, "Once upon a Mulberry Field" follows one man's journey to self-discovery, fraught with disillusionment and despair but ultimately redeemed by the power of love.

    I really hate to cancel. I was really looking forward to it. For some reason I kept thinking it was a day meetup. I'm going to see Jackson Browne with my mom that night.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
