Today is book club day for our first November book, The Last Winter of Dani Lancing, a novel by P.D. Viner. Twenty years ago, college student Dani was murdered but her killer was never found. Now a promising new lead may change everything. The three main characters (four if you count Dani) represents the mother, father, daughter, and boyfriend in most of us. Most readers will identify with at least one of roles or a moment in each of the characters’ lives, such as Dani’s desire to be independent from her mother. Or Tom trying so hard to be more than a friend to Dani.
From Left to Write book club members were just as enthralled with Viner’s book as I was. Head over to their blogs to see what the novel inspired them to share about their lives:
