A Sure Thing

After five and one half years attending meetings with eighteen different book clubs, I'm confident asserting Christina Baker Kline's 2013 bestseller "Orphan Train" cannot miss.

* Both stories being told - although separated by more than eighty years - unfold in a linear fashion.

* The prose is straightforward and told in the first person.

* Though there are sad elements in both stories, the ending is upbeat.

* None of the surprises revealed as the book draws to its conclusion are at all implausible.

* The central premise is based on historical events.

I'm so sure this book will be a winner for any club, I'm offering a money back guarantee. If you suggest it and a significant majority of your fellow readers do not really like it, contact me and we'll arrange for an exchange of bitcoins, amount TBD.

    Is all I want to say to you
    De do do do, de da da da
    Their innocence will pull me through
    De do do do, de da da da
    Is all I want to say to you
    De do do do, de da da da
    They're meaningless and all that's true
