Christian Historical Romance Book Club

 

It’s finally happened. We have a book club! Once every couple of months, we’ll pick a Christian Historical Romance to read and then come together via Zoom to discuss it, maybe play a couple fun games, and do a give away. I’ve always wanted to do this, so I am so excited to share it with you. If you are interested, feel free to fill out this form. Signed up? Be sure to join the Private Facebook Group. Zoom Links will be sent either via email or shared in the Facebook Group. Discussion questions can be found ahead of time below. 🙂

Meeting Date: December 10th

Time: 8 pm EST / 7 pm CST

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

  1. Who was your favorite character? Least favorite?
  2. What was your favorite part?
  3. Were there any struggles you identified with?
  4. Did anything strike you as surprising?
  5. Were there any parts you struggled with?
  6. Do you think Richard’s relationship with his mother and brother would have been worse or better if he had told them about seeing his father’s infidelity? Would his lifestyle have been different if he was able to talk to someone about the incident?
  7. How do you think Richard really felt about being the “black sheep” of his family?
  8. Why do you think Richard kept his writing a secret from his family?
  9. Though it was customary for parents to chose their children’s spouses in the 1800s, could you have handled your parents choosing your spouse for you?

Ivy Hill Christmas by Julie Klassen

Richard Brockwell, the younger son of Ivy Hill’s most prominent family, hasn’t been home for Christmas in years. He prefers to live in the London townhouse, far away from Brockwell Court, the old family secret that haunts him, and the shadows of his past mistakes. But then his mother threatens to stop funding his carefree life–unless he comes home for Christmas. Out of options, he sets out for Ivy Hill, planning to be back on a coach bound for London and his unencumbered bachelor life as soon as the festivities are over.

But Christmas in the country presents unforeseen surprises, including encounters with an orphaned apprentice, the first love he disappointed years ago, and Arabella Awdry, a young lady who is far more appealing than he recalled . . . and determined to have nothing to do with him.

Will Christmastime in Ivy Hill, with its village charm, kissing boughs, joyous songs, and divine hope, work its magic in his heart . . . and hers as well?
