How the author was able to tell such a horrifying tale with such beauty and humor is amazing. This one you can't put down.

Difficult to read, but oh so worth it. This seem to be "fractured" family pulls together to show love that transcends their situation. Beautiful.

My first Stephen King, and it didn't disappoint! The size scared me a little but I can't remember going through a book as fast. The concept of time travel and Kings' handling of it, the twists, turns and surprises keep you guessing throughout. A real joy!

Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

Beautiful book with lots of lessons about what matters in life. It's nice to read that someone who seems to have the answers to what most of us are searching for is also human in the mistakes he makes. It gives the rest of us hope.
