My undiscovered gem is Catherine Lloyd Burns's "It Hit Me Like a Ton of Bricks: A Memoir of a Mother and Daughter." Oh, how I love this book!


"A Return to Love" by Marrianne Williamson
This book changed my life. It's excellent!


"The Christmas Quilt" by Jennifer Chiaverini, an Elm Creek Quilts novel.

I picked this up last week thinking it was a murder mystery series I hadn't seen before. No murders, but an engrossing story of an older woman & a younger one brought together by a love of quilting. And skillfully woven into the story are insistent reminders of the importance of reconciliation with family & friends, before it is too late for anything but regrets.


I loved "Once a Spy" by Keith Thomson.


I'm not sure if many people have read "Prodigal Summer" by Barbara Kingsolver. I enjoyed the story and the ecological theme very much!
