  11. Thank you Caroline and Juliennelw! Our group read Shadow of the Wind for one of our couples meetings. It was the perfect book as both the women and the men really enjoyed it.The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. was a fascinating book and even more so because we are a Baltimore based group. Thanks for your suggeations. I have been wanting to read A Dog’s Purpose and will check out the other books!
