As a way for Christian Fiction Readers to connect meaningfully and more frequently, Joy from Edgy Inspiration Romance started the Christian Fiction Book Club. I’m honored with hosting this month.

Or you can always get more information and sellers through Goodreads

Here is how it works

1. Secure a copy of Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar and read it between now and Wednesday, October 27th.
2. Peruse the discussion questions included at the end of the book. Choose one or more and address them in a blog post. You may include a review of the book, if you wish.
3. Schedule your blog post to run on Wednesday, October 27th. You may copy and use the book club logo.
4. On Wednesday October 27th, I will run my review and answer a few discussion questions. I’ll include a MckLinky at the bottom so you can link your posts.
5. From Wednesday the 27th to Saturday October 30th, we will hop around reading and commenting on the reviews and opinions of participating bloggers.
6. If you do not have a blog of your own, you can share your opinions about Pearl in the Sand in the comment sections of other blogs.
7. Have you already read Pearl in the Sand? Great, participate anyway! You’ll got a head start answering some of the questions!

More about Pearl in the Sand

Pearl in the SandFrom Goodreads: Can a Canaanite harlot who has made her livelihood by looking desirable to men make a fitting wife for one of the leaders of Israel? Shockingly, the Bible’s answer is yes. At the age of fifteen Rahab is forced into prostitution by her beloved father. In her years as a courtesan, she learns to mistrust men and hate herself. Into the emotional turmoil of her world walks Salmone, a respected leader of Judah. Through the tribulations of a stormy relationship, Rahab and Salmone learn the true source of one another’s worth in God and find healing from fear and rejection.
