  1. I enjoyed this series. How about The Angel and the Beehive or Bowman’s The Mormon People for next summer?

  2. Thank you for the two summer book clubs! I read both books; I read comments; I thought about the books; I learned some things I’m glad to know; I learned some things that trouble me; I’m thankful you gave me the incentive to read them. How about a Wallace Stegner book?
