A MAN CALLED OVE by Fredrick Backman. At 59, Ove is a grumble Gus of the first degree. Rules are made to be followed, signs are meant to be obeyed, and don't even get him started on computers and cell phones. Ove has been this way his whole life, but he's gotten worse in the last four years since his wife, Sonia, died, taking with her all the color in a world Ove sees as black-and-white. Ove has decided life without Sonia is not worth living and plans to join her in the next world, but his plans change when a young couple moves in next door. A charming, thoughtful reflection on life and love.


THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah. French sisters Vianne and Isabelle are reunited when one sister's husband is sent to fight in World War II and find their bond as well as their respective beliefs tested by a world that changes in horrific ways. A story that ably depicts the horror of war through the eyes of two women, whose strength of character shines through no matter their differences.


COLD SASSY TREE by Olive Burns. One thing that one can depend on in Cold Sassy, Georgia, is that word gets around fast. On July 5, 1906, things take a scandalous turn. That is the day that E. Rucker Blakeslee, proprietor of the general store and barely three weeks a widower, elopes with Miss Love Simpson, a woman half his age and, worse yet, a Yankee! On that day, fourteen-year-old Will Tweedy's adventures begin, and an unimpeachably pious town comes to life. A tender, humorous and wise coming-of-age story.

THE COLOR PURPLE by Alice Walker. The Color Purple is a 1982 epistolary novel, winner of the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the National Book Award for Fiction. It was later adapted into a film and musical of the same name. Taking place mostly in rural Georgia, the story focuses on the life of women of color in the southern United States in the 1930s, addressing numerous issues including their exceedingly low position in American social culture. The novel has been the frequent target of censors because of the sometimes explicit content, particularly in terms of violence.

A FATAL GRACE by Louise Penny.

Penny has won the New Blood Dagger as well as multiple Agatha, Anthony, Dilys, Arthur Ellis, and other prestigious awards for these intriguing, character-driven mysteries.
