Cottage Book Club: Wintering

The Cottage Book Club of “mostly mature” adult (when we have to be) women (although not necessarily required) welcomes everyone, whether or not they have read the book. We’re friendly, of all ages, love to laugh and sometimes cry. We talk strictly about the book, and afterwards, a little about the author. Karen Langs is the facilitator and begins discussion with a general question. “One comment at a time, please."

The group meets the first and third Wednesdays of every month at 10:00 a.m. for an hour, more or less. The Cottage Book Club meets year round and is open to anyone who wishes to join for a day or a season.

A true epic: a love story that spans sixty years, generations' worth of feuds, and secrets withheld and revealed. One day, elderly, demented Harry Eide steps out of his sickbed and disappears into the brutal, unforgiving Minnesota wilderness that surrounds his hometown of Gunflint. It's not the first time Harry has vanished. Thirty-odd years earlier, in 1963, he'd fled his marriage with his eighteen-year-old-son Gustav in tow. He'd promised Gustav a rambunctious adventure, two men taking on the woods in winter. With Harry gone for the second (and last) time, unable to survive the woods he'd once braved, his son Gus, now grown, sets out to relate the story of their first disappearance--bears and ice floes and all--to Berit Lovig, an old woman who shares a special, if turbulent, bond with Harry. Wintering is a thrilling adventure story wrapped in the deep, dark history of a rural town.
