The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom
 
Insightful, Interesting, Inspiring
The Time Keeper

I am not recommending this for book clubs because I don't think it will allow for a great discussion. It is more of a personal read and reflection book and how each person feels about time. I liked the book but it is my least favorite from Mitch Albom. Easy read but just didn't make me jump up and down.

Two Rings: A Story of Love and War by Millie Werber, Eve Keller

Two Rings

Our book club had a great discussion after reading this book. I think most memoirs of WWII provide a platform for detailed discussions and feedback. I personally enjoyed the book and learned even more of the horrific conditions that the Holocaust victims endured. The writing bounced around and some of us felt there was no chronology to her story but we overlooked this due to the severity of her treatment and the hardships she was sharing with Eve Keller. The loss of hope and faith by Millie is so hard to imagine as she thought she would not survive each day.

This book could be useful if one had a burning need or desire to learn all they could about the disease. Otherwise, it is definitely not worth investing time and emotion. I am generally sympathetic and compassionate but this is over the top.
