October’s book title is As Bright as Heaven written by Susan Meissner. In 1918, Philadelphia was a city teeming with promise. Even as its young men went off to fight in the Great War, there were opportunities for a fresh
start on its cobblestone streets. Into this bustling town, came Pauline Bright and her husband, filled with hope
that they could now give their three daughters--Evelyn, Maggie, and Willa--a chance at a better life. But just months after they arrive, the Spanish Flu reaches the shores of America. As the pandemic claims more than twelve thousand victims in their adopted city, they find their lives left with a world that looks nothing like the
one they knew. But even as they lose loved ones, they take in a baby orphaned by the disease who becomes
their single source of hope. Amidst the tragedy and challenges, they learn what they cannot live without--and what they are willing to do about it. Pick up a copy today and begin reading this compelling story of a mother
and her daughters who find themselves in a harsh world not of their making, which will either crush their
resolve to survive or purify it.
