"The best thing about life, in my opinion, is that you don't have to do it alone."
- Sarah Monzon

First off, Happy Book Release, Sarah Monzon! I'm so glad she's able to stop by and share about this month's word with us!

"Life is such a constantly changing thing with ups and downs, highs and lows, isn't it? Just when you think you've figured it out, it surprises you. The best thing about life, in my opinion, is that you don't have to do it alone. There will always be people with you, either for a season, a reason, or a lifetime, that will help you out, lift you up, and set you straight. When I think about a book that expresses life, Heather Woodhaven's "The Secret Life of Book Club" instantly comes to mind. It doesn't matter what stage of life you're in--stay-at-home-mom with littles, divorcee and single mom, mid-life crisis--there is a character in this book that you will be able to identify with and relate to. And in case you ever needed a break from life, reading is a great escape. I'm just sayin'."

Sarah Monzon is a Navy chaplain's wife and a stay at home mom to the two cutest littles in the world. Playing pretend all day with them isn't enough, she spends the evenings after their heads hit the pillow to create her own imaginary characters. When she isn't in the world of make believe, she can be found in the pine forests of western Washington taking care of her family, fostering friendships, and enjoying all the adventures each day brings.

Her debut novel, The Isaac Project, skyrocketed to Amazon bestseller status while her Sophomore book, Finders Keepers, has finaled in contests such as the Inspy Awards and received a 4 star review from Romantic Times.

ABOUT The Secret Life of Book Club by Heather Woodhaven

Book Club Just Got Real. 

Jeanine Phelps is tired of reading about other women who grab life and have epiphanies. She challenges her book club to live like the heroines in the books they love. 

At first, seizing the day is pure fun until it generates an upset in each of their lives: 
Jeanine’s husband is so inspired by her new vitality it triggers a bizarre mid-life crisis involving tacos. 
Paula, the model PTA soccer mom, starts fighting with her man about the family printing business until she’s drawn back to her 
secret passion. 

Kate, a single mom and teacher, can’t figure out if the rekindled friendship with the new museum creator is worth the romantic risk. 
Anne, a mother of four babies, works to hold the book club together while trying to figure out her own identity. 

When everyone wants to quit the challenge, the media’s spotlight makes it impossible. Can they rely on each other while keeping their priorities? And more importantly, is their sanity worth the chance to each become a heroine in her own life?



Thank you, Sarah for taking part! And yes, you're right, "the best about life is that we don't have to do it alone." Thank you,for being a part of ours!

Maryland, Present Day

Jacqueline Rogers can rebuild anything...except the shambles of her past. A restorer of vintage planes, she's worked hard to earn the reputation of being one of the guys. The last thing she needs is a former Navy pilot fighting his own inner demons stepping in to defend her from dangers she thought she’d outrun long ago. Some battles must be fought alone.

After a freak accident severs Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington’s dreams, as well as two limbs, he’s left with nothing but a fragile faith and a duty-bound promise to watch out for his friend’s baby sister. A promise she insists is as unnecessary as it is unappreciated. But when she turns the tables and begins to weld together the broken parts of his life, it may be his heart that is in need of protection. 

England, 1942

With the world at war yet again, Alice Galloway rejects her father’s traditional expectations and offers her piloting expertise to the Air Transport Auxiliary. She may be a woman in a man’s world, but when she overhears key intelligence, she must find the strength to transcend boundaries and her own fears. Or countless people may die. 

Sometimes the past reaches forward to bring hope to the future.
