The book for our May discussion is “We Must Be Brave” by by Frances Liardet
Spanning the sweep of the twentieth century, We Must Be Brave explores the fierce love that we feel for our children and the power of that love to endure. Beyond distance, beyond time, beyond life itself.
“A powerful story that proves how love itself requires courage.” –Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing. A woman. A war. The child who changed everything.
