A Book I Can Call My Own

I think I may have found a book that I can call a favorite. This should mean something to those of you who know me well. I do not have a favorite color, nor favorite food, music genre, restaurant, art style, etc. I'm pretty well happy with everything. As long as I don't find it offensive I can appreciate anything.

The book is A Lantern in Her Hand by Bess Streeter Aldrich.

I have to choose the book for my ward book club next month. After a lot of thought (it's funny how hard of a decision it is), I have decided on this book. However, I feel hesitant because I am pretty sure it will not be completely accepted. I won't be surprised if many of the ladies don't finish it. It is not an "easy read." This makes me sad because this book is somehow an extension of myself, and if they don't like it, I may have a hard time not taking it personally. I realize this is irrational and silly. I debated between this book and "Darcy's Story," a much more popular and readable book... to which I am not personally attached...and would probably be well liked by all. I want to make a good impression, after all.
I have decided to be brave and choose A Lantern in Her Hand, and hope that someone finds it as lovely as I do.

I haven't read either of those books, so thanks for sharing the tip.

I'll have to try them too. I hope it goes better than you expect in your ward.
