Hosts:  Cindy Blair and Sandy Parker

This great group of woman are all neighbors in Waterford Pointe, which is a new community of homes in the beautiful Lake Keowee area outside Seneca, South Carolina.  There are artists, former teachers, and other talented women who make up the group. 

Their monthly book club meets at the club house, which is nestled next to one of Lake Keowee's numerous coves.  I was delighted to meet these women, who were fortunate to live in an area I had discovered and fallen in love with just one year earlier.  They each brought a salad to share.  Following dinner and wine, we gathered to talk about some of the spirited women who had shared their stories with me in The Fortunate Four and my process to gather these stories.


Joy, It was wonderful of you to share your stories and yourself with our book club.  I really enjoyed the accompanying photos throughout your book.  They reminded me of the many family photos I have of family members from the 20s, 30s, and 40s.  I wanted to bring them along to show.  We hope you like SC as much as all of us do.  Sandy P.

Thank you so much for coming to our meeting.  I hope this will be the beginning of some great friendships.  Your book was a bit bittersweet for me.  It made me think of my grandmother who was an amazing woman.  I wish I had learned more of her story!  My favorite story was "Dreams in a Bottle."  I loved the idea.  Cindy B.

Thank you so much for the stories.  Too many are lost with time.  My great-grandmother was very independent.  She grew her own grapes to make juice for her church.  She wanted to be sure it was not alcohol!  Ronetta A.
