    Freedom By Jonathan Franzen You don’t hear me say this word often, but this book is a masterpiece ... It’s an epic family saga—it’s got everything—sex and love, even rock n’ roll, and everything you want in a book. —Oprah Featured in Oprah's Book Club 2010

    A book well worth reading for the "mature" crowd. This poignant story follows the life of a couple who meet in college and lose their relationship as empty-nesters. The story is rich and deeply emotional.
