Book Club next Book: "Daughters in My Kingdom"

I had selected "Daughters in My Kingdom" as our next Book Club reading book. It will be the  opportunity to some non LDS   women in the group to participate in spirited discussions and link our testimonies to this.
I made some "chapter tags" to have each member write down a question about before the meeting. There are many fascinating works of the book that make for excellent discussion.
This is the idea! Maybe you can use between your leaders, your VT partner or your teenager daughter....How wonderful things we  all will discover together! Enjoy it!
