Our Daytime Book Club usually meets on the last Wednesday of each month. At our next meeting, on Wednesday, May 31st at 11:30 am, we'll meet to discuss Shusako Endo's Silence. Set in 17th-century Japan, Endo's novel follows two Portuguese Jesuit priests who enter a country that is hostile to their religion, where feudal lords force the Christian faithful to publicly renounce their beliefs. Eventually captured and forced to watch their brothers lay down their lives for their faith, the priests bear witness to unimaginable cruelties that test their own beliefs.
