The Narrows, Ann Petry. Set in the 1950s, this unforgettable classic deftly evokes a tragic love affair and offers a window onto the powerful ways in which class, race, and love intersected in midcentury America.

The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books.
A must read!

Villa America was in fact a real house on the French Riviera that Sara and Gerald Murphy built to escape to in the 1920's. Members of a group of expat Americans, they were known for their fabulous parties, but these were people who kept secrets and who were, of course, heartbreakingly human.

Offering a bold understanding of human nature and the hidden prejudices we harbor, Babylon Rolling is a powerful portrait of racism in America and a city on the edge of transformation.)

Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison goes on my favorite books list. It's an awesome story about identity. Morrison is a great storyteller. I would recommend this book to anyone even though I didn't really care for the ending.
Song of Solomon, by Toni Morrison. Whoa. What a novel. I think I need to re-read it once or a few times more to really get all of the underlying symbolism and allusions. But it was so good. I think I also need to re-read Beloved at my age now (I don't think I really appreciated it as much in high school). This was such an interesting snapshot of life in 1940s America; Toni Morrison just paints the most vivid images in her books. Such a good read.

The story of three women living very different lives in Australia, but when one of them finds an old tattered letter in the attic that's addressed to her, to be opened only in the event of her husband's death (and he is still very much alive), it opens up a Pandora's box. Their lives will intersect in ways none of them could foresee.
