February Book Discussion - "Stones from the River" by Ursula Hegi

Set in a small German town around 1915, this book is seen thru the eyes of Trudi Montag, a dwarf and the town's unofficial historian. Through Trudi's unblinking eyes, we witness the growing impact of Nazism on the ordinary townsfolk of Burgdorf as they are thrust on to a larger moral stage and forced to make choices that will forever mark their lives. Stones from the River is a story of secrets, parceled out masterfully by Trudi -- and by Ursula Hegi -- as they reveal the truth about living through unspeakable times.

    I agree with Julie. I was on the fence about the book, but appreciate others comments.

    Yes, even though I didn't like the book, I enjoyed hearing others talk about what they found interesting and it's redeeming qualities.

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.
