Women’s club hears book reviewer
Monitor Staff Writer
KEMP–Sharron Lucky entertained the Cedar Creek Lake Women’s
Club during their monthly meeting Jan. 24 at Cedar Creek
Lucky, a professional book reviewer, shared the story,
“Becky: The Life and Loves of Becky Thatcher” by Lenore Hart
with the club members and guests.
Dressed in costume from 1910 in San Francisco, Lucky takes
the audience back in time as she shares Becky Thatcher’s
desire to set the record straight about her relationship
with Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
Thatcher was Tom Sawyer’s childhood sweetheart who was
uncommitted to making a life with her.
Thatcher lived in Missouri during the Civil War. Missouri
tried to remain neutral during the war but became involved
when it was invaded.

Book reviewer Sharron Lucky of Dallas presents “Becky: The
Life and Loves of Becky Thatcher” for the Cedar Creek Lake
Women’s Club Jan. 24 at Cedar Creek Country Club.
Thatcher’s husband enlists in the army against her
wishes. Thatcher decides to join Tom Sawyer’s “Freebooters
Gang” to find her husband. Thatcher often impersonates a man
as a member of the gang. Her goal is to find her husband and
bring him home from the war.
Lucky is able to be the voice of Thatcher as the audience
learns of her adventures during this time period. Most are
very humorous as the strong-willed Thatcher has a message “I
was never the weeping little ninny Sam Clemens made me out
to be in his book.”
Lucky has been a book reviewer for many years and resides in
Dallas with her husband. She is also children’s book author
and public speaker.
Guests were treated to a delicious lunch of salad
selections, baked potatoes, soup and cookies.
Lucy Morris and Betty Wise were named to the club’s
nominating committee that is chaired by Phyllis Watson. The
committee will present a slate of officer nominees for
election and installation in the spring.
