The Memory Keeper's Daughter. I have a ragged copy in my personal library, bought at a thrift shop on a whim. It's not of the genre I normally go for, but it was worth it. I liked many of the characters, despite their flaws. I'd recommend it.
The Memory Keeper's Daughter. A story of the complexities of human motivation, and how two families evolve and revolve around a terrible secret. Amazing Book!
memory keepers daughter. I can't remember if we read this one for book club. I thought it was a good read, if a bit sad. I was so annoyed by some of the characters and all their stupid secrets!

The Kitchen House. An excellent historical novel. It has been compared to The Help. But, it is a way better read.

Very good book. Our book club rated it 9.2/10. Though it is set in the late 1700s in the South, it feels surprisingly contemporary in the issues it addresses. It is surprising that a Canadian author could write so well about slavery.
The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom. Loved this book! Great pick by our book club-could not put this one down.

Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his "Great Sadness," Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend.
The Shack by William P Young, one of my first book club reads. Truly moved me. Provided perspective as to why tragedy happens to some of us, and how it is possible to pick up the pieces from that point onwards. One of my very favorite books!

One of my FAVORITE Jodi Picoult books. Wonderful. Couldn't put it down and have re-read it several times.
"Do you have any favorite authors or titles? Why are these favorites?" Besides "My Sister's Keeper" being one of my favorite books of all time, Jodi Picoult is by far my favorite author. She writes from multiple character's perspectives and she jumps around which keeps me engaged and on my toes. I also love that her books are almost always centered around legal issues or hot button topics because they feel relevant.
Plain Truth by Jodi Piccoult - she is one of my new favorite authors!

Not sure if this will end up being disturbing: Four years after Tom and Abby's 12-year-old daughter vanishes, she is found alive but strangely calm. When the teen refuses to testify against the man connected to her disappearance, Tom decides to investigate the traumatizing case on his own. Nothing can prepare him for what he is about to discover.
