Book Club

Book Club meets the third Wednesday of the month.  October’s selection is "Island Beneath the Sea” by Isabel Allende.  Born a slave on the island of Saint-Domingue, ZaritÉ, known as TÉtÉ, survives a childhood of brutality and fear, finding solace in the traditional rhythms of African drums and the mysteries of voodoo.  When 20-year-old Toulouse Valmorain arrives on the island in 1770, he discovers that running his father's plantation is neither glamorous nor easy. Marriage also proves problematic.  But it is his teenaged slave, TÉtÉ, upon whom Valmorain becomes most dependent, as their lives intertwine across four decades. (Powells.com)
