- The debut novel from Jim Grimsley, Winter Birds is a shattering story of heartbreak, violence and the endurance of the spirit. Maybe this could be your mom’s next book in her Book Club?
- You may think it’s been done: three twenty-something women embark on a journey running from an enigmatic crisis, facilitated by… a large cat? This is new. The Lion Is In by Delia Ephron is a quirky and enlightening story of transformation. Ephron’s writing is both allusive and poised, as are her characters . . . and cat.
- Using past, present, and future, Anna Quindlen’s memoir, Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, uses her own life events to illuminate our own at every stage: from marriage, girlfriends, mothers, faith, and loss, to all the stuff in our overflowing closets. A great read from a great author.
- Unputdownable. The Expats, by Chris Pavone, combines a fierce protagonist with a suspense-filled, mind-tangling plot. It will have you wondering: Can we ever really escape our secrets?
- Ryan O’Neil’s long-awaited emotional memoir, Both Of us: My Life with Farrah details his life and love with America’s sweetheart, Farrah Fawcett. His voice manages to be gentle yet strong, and will pull at your heartstrings like a heart-racing love story.
