My review (published at Read, Run, Ramble):
Thank you to The Story Plant for providing me with an early copy of this book!
Five college friends meet on Thursdays to play cards and hang out. They enjoy college life, each other’s company, and playing pranks on each other. But when tragedy strikes the group is shaken and life begins to teach lessons that no professor or classroom can. What is life all about? Can a life cut short really be a meaningful one – one that matters, even if all it could have accomplished will now go unaccomplished? What makes our lives “worthy”?
I enjoyed The Thursday Night Club. It was a sweet rendition of Christmas spirit and the good that comes from small deeds and by normal people. As with all of Manchester’s work, this novella packs a lot of caring, sharing, love, friendship, and growth. Writing stories that come from and are directed right at the heart, Manchester always makes me smile.
