Book Club with Author Visit: Love at the Last Minute

I love my book club!  We’ve been meeting once a month for 14 years!
Have to share a special meeting from last month when the book’s author joined us:
Rhonda Hayes Curtis

Here’s a quick intro about the book from the author’s website:

“Rhonda Hayes promised to give her thirty-five-year-old dying daughter, Sherry, anything she wanted. When Sherry requested that her mother sign up for a dating site, Rhonda was panic-struck. What would people think? Only nine months earlier, Rhonda’s devoted husband, Greg, had died from cancer. Keeping her promise, Rhonda acquiesced to Sherry’s wish. Together they completed a dating profile; moments before hitting SUBMIT, Rhonda added these words:
           My daughter has terminal cancer and she is my life right now. Why would I be on a dating site? She is encouraging me to move on with my life and what a treat it would be if you had the opportunity to meet her. She is an angel.

Weeks later, Rhonda was immersed in two worlds: the exhilaration of falling in love and the despair of watching her daughter die.

Love at the Last Minute is a memoir about finding courage, acceptance, and love. It’s also about how opening up to God’s plan can truly bring miracles into your life.”

It’s available HERE on Rhonda’s website.


Our hostess, Linda, tied lunch into the book and also had the most beautiful
patio tables set for us to enjoy….
(Those little succulent ‘cupcakes’ were our favor to take home – how sweet is that?) 

And dessert was yummy apple pie – just like they served in the book! 

Thank you Rhonda for sharing your story with us!

And how can I resist sharing this cutie pie?  He also attended book club!
