Distant Shores by Kristin Hannah
"Fabulous! I could relate to the woman and the way she had thrown herself into her family and lost some of herself and her own dreams along the way. A good reminder that we are never too old to make use of our talents and gifts. Thought provoking...." Read more of this review »

Sister by Rosamund Lupton
"An interesting and intriguing book, but I did not understand the ending and what really happened. That left me unsatisfied with the book."
Wicked Lies by Lisa Jackson
"I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of suspense, some romance, and some very unexpected things happen. Really great, I did not like the book that came after this one, Born to Die. But Wicked Lies is well worth reading!"

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
“Never confuse faith, or belief—of any kind—with something even remotely intellectual.”

The Hotel New Hampshire by John Irving
“So we dream on. Thus we invent our lives. We give ourselves a sainted mother, we make our father a hero; and someone’s older brother and someone’s older sister – they become our heroes too. We invent what we love and what we fear. There is always a brave lost brother – and a little lost sister, too. We dream on and on: the best hotel, the perfect family, the resort life. And our dreams escape us almost as vividly as we can imagine them… That’s what happens, like it or not. And because that’s what happens, this is what we need: we need a good, smart bear… Coach Bob knew it all along: you’ve got to get obsessed and stay obsessed. You have to keep passing the open windows.”
