Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar by Cheryl Strayed
Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

Lynn Cox, January 1, 2013

Cheryl Strayed has a way with prose. Much more than an advice column, this collection is more like lovely, tender essays. Reading this book made me want to be gentler with people, to be tender and caring about our shared human condition.

Ahab's Wife (P.S.) by Sena Jeter Naslund
Ahab's Wife (P.S.)

Lynn Cox, January 2, 2010

Ahab's Wife is one of those rare books that makes one regret having finished reading it. It's not that the ending disappoints -- not at all! It's that the sheer pleasure of reading such a well-written, engrossing saga has ended. I wanted the book to go on and on. A masterpiece.

Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver
Pigs in Heaven

Lynn Cox, November 30, 2006

What a great read! This is one of Kingsolver's earlier works, but it still has the complex characters and culture clashes for which she's well known. This one's not quite as "heavy" as The Poisonwood Bible, but it's equally as satisfying and enlightening. Pigs in Heaven made me wonder about some of my own deeply imbedded cultural imperatives.
