First Book Club — Come and join us for discussion on the content of the book “1984” and faith response to the author George Orwell on Wednesday, September 11 at 5:30 p.m. in Grace Place. A listing of the 2019-20 book titles and authors
can be viewed at the below link.
October’s book title is The Dollmaker of Krakow written by R. M. Romeo. In the land of dolls, there
is magic. In the land of humans, there is war. Everywhere there is pain. But together there is hope. Karolina is a living doll whose king and queen have been overthrown. But when a strange wind spirits her away from the Land of the Dolls, she finds herself in Kraków, Poland, in the company of the Dollmaker, a man with an unusual power and a marked past. The Dollmaker has learned to keep to himself, but Karolina’s courageous and compassionate manner lead him to smile and to even befriend
a violin-playing father and his daughter—that is, once the Dollmaker gets over the shock of realizing
a doll is speaking to him. But their newfound happiness is dashed when Nazi soldiers descend upon Poland. Karolina and the Dollmaker quickly realize that their Jewish friends are in grave danger, and they are determined to help save them, no matter what the risks. Hurry and pick up a copy today and begin reading this timeless fantasy set in the Second World War that weaves together magic, folklore and history.
