The Keeper of Lost Causes; love this Danish mystery with a terrific detective duo; if you liked 'Dragon Tattoo' give this a try!
Adler-Olsen, Jussi (Denmark) - His first book to be translated into English is The Keeper of Lost Causes, the first in a series about chief detective Carl Morck. The Copenhagen detective is recovering from what he thought was a career-destroying gunshot wound when he is assigned to Department Q, a new unit charged with solving cold cases. I haven't read this yet, but I like the sound of the cold cases, the twisty plot, and the touch of humor that Glass Key winner Adler-Olsen is said to possess.

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. One of my favorite reads of the year, and possibly ever. Not to mention, a fantastic book cover (for the design nerd in me). - NS
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. This story is a twist on a Russian fairytale. It portrays delicate lives in a rough environment. A couple heartbroken over their inability to have children make a new start in 1920s Alaska. One day a mysterious girl enter their lives; seeming to be born from the snow. This story is mystical, yet raw and realistic as well. It explores the concept of unconditional love and how our past affects our perception of reality. There is also a Dutch edition: "Kind van Sneeuw"
Eowyn Ivey’s “The Snow Child” is a lovely fairy tale for adults.
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. Love this book! This is a great book for book clubs, lots to discuss
I found I enjoyed the book much more than the movie. The relationship between Lily and Snow Flower runs deep and spans a lifetime. They experience love, heartache and sorrow and ultimate betrayal because of pride. These two young girls grow into strong women who are completely different yet the same (Old Sames). This is a must read!

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See Lily and Snow Flower become laotong (old sames), a friendship that lasts through their lives and hardships. But things aren't always what they seem. This is a fabulous historical novel about friendship, betrayal, love, and freedom. A sweeping picture of 19th-century China evolves, and I was fascinated. I'm definitely going to watch the movie. Any of See's books are winners for lovers of historical fiction.

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand. so worth reading, very historically accurate, i learned a great deal about the war but most importantly how humans can be so cruel to one another yet the spirit of those tortured could endure so much more than one can imagine.

Book Review: Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption By Laura Hillenbrand, author of Seabiscuit True story, inspirational, moving, powerful. Real history, real humanity and the real power of God. A story so packed I could not predict what was coming next. A truly inspirational life story.
