Librarian Emily is reading WINTER OF THE WORLD by Ken Follett, the second in the Century Trilogy. She thinks it's worth a read for those who enjoy historical fiction. Follett's take on major events from the 1930-50s encompasses a lot of characters and plot lines, but he doesn't get these too tangled to follow. She recommends starting with the first book (Fall of Giants) since this one follows the same families.
