Enemy Women at Leslie’s

Sue and I arrived a bit late after a union steward recognition meeting. In addition to us and our hostess, present were Jana, who brought Jim, Deanna, Susan C., Dave, and Jackie. Deanna was ailing from an injury to her foot. She just returned from Israel. The story was closely related to the author’s research, and we mostly enjoyed her Civil war story. The characters were interesting. We mostly got used to the lack of quotation marks. Jana is interested in the subject, especially the conflict in the Kansas – Missouri area. While interesting as a piece of history, we could go along with the characters in their struggle as engaged observers. Paulette Giles wrote an interesting story, grounded in historical documentation. I mistook the hummus for brown mustard, and the melted brie for mayo to go with the salami, and cheese slices. Good poppy seed cake, and beverages – thanks Leslie. Jackie, and I announced our selections for August, and September. Bob updated our bookclub webpage(and added his selection for October) :
