Pulpwood Queens Bookclub for May: Goodbye Orchid by Carol van den Hende
May 26, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
A wonderful pick this month from a wonderful author, Goodbye Orchid has garnered international attention as a book club read. All are welcome and treats will be served at our book club shindig the fourth Thursday of May!
Winner of the American Fiction Award and Pinnacle Achievement Award. Can love blossom after life changes in an instant?
One July morning in Manhattan, handsome athlete and entrepreneur Phoenix Walker accompanies his love, half-Asian beauty Orchid, to the airport. Neither believes today is goodbye.
But after she leaves, disaster strikes. Phoenix wakes in the hospital, broken, forever changed. He longs for Orchid but remembers the tragedy in her past that makes her panic over images of trauma.
Now, he’s faced with the hardest decision of his life. Does he burden the woman whose traumatic childhood makes him feel protective of her? Or does true love mean leaving her without explaining why?
Rising from ashes is hard. Giving up the one you love is harder.
