The Fayette Library has partnered with the Friends of Harrison Lake to create a Story Trail at the lake. Each month throughout the Summer and Fall is a different story. You can pick up a map at the Library or at the camp office. Take a scenic walk with the family through the woods beside the camp office and enjoy a story along the way. The book on display for October is Spooky Hour by Tony Mitton.

The Thursdays at 7 Book Club will meet on October 27. The book that will be discussed is An Unseemly Wife by E.B. Moore.

In 1867, Ruth Holtz has more blessings that she can count within the warm embrace of the Amish community. Then the English arrive, spreading incredible stories of free land in the West and inspiring her husband to dream of a new life in Idaho. Breaking the rules of their Order, Ruth’s husband packs up his pregnant wife and their four children and joins a wagon train heading west. Though Ruth is determined to keep separate from the English, as stricture demands, the harrowing journey soon compels her to accept help from two unlikely allies.

But as these new friendships lead to betrayal, what started as a quest for a brighter future ends with Ruth making unthinkable sacrifices, risking faith and family, and transforming into a woman she never imagined she’d become. If you are interested in joining the book club, stop in the Library and pick up a book.
