Christmas Bells by Jennifer Chiaverini

Bestselling author Jennifer Chiaverini celebrates Christmas, past and present, with a novel inspired by the classic poem “Christmas Bells,” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Preparing for Christmas in present-day Cambridge, Massachusetts, church members face challenges aided by faith and friends and inspired by the eponymous poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow – who, in an alternate storyline, fights despair as he confronts personal tragedy and the Civil War.

A gentle exploration of tragedy, hope, the power of Christmas, and the possibility of miracles.

Tuesday, December 31st – the Afternoon Book Club will not be meeting this session due to the holidays.
See you next year!
