Ireland's History by an itinerant storyteller who arrives on an rural Irish house one evening in the 1950's, told as payment for food and lodging each night, and the relationship between the old man and the family's young son. How about a book about an Irish girl? www.adealwithGodbook.com
I love this book. Irish history as told by an itinerant storyteller who arrives at a rural home one evening in the 1950's. He tells tales of Ireland's culture and past for a few magical nights as payment for food and shelter, then mysteriously leaves. Yet he is never far from the imagination or heart of the family's young son, and is central to the boy's journey over the years.
Ireland by Frank Delaney. One of the best books. I love the way he tells the history of Ireland.

Ireland: A Novel, by Frank Delaney
Inman, a wounded Confederate soldier, leaves the hospital where he is being treated, determined to walk home to his sweetheart Ada. He finds the land and the girl he remembers to be changed by the war. This book is a bit depressing but a great historical fiction read. Lengthy but worth the number of pages. Liked the movie, too.
This is a great novel.

Wonderful historical romance book and movie. This novel takes place in the South during the civil war. I loved it!
I did not think I would like this one but my mom insisted that I would...I'm glad I took her advise. This book far exceeded my expectations. It was grim and beautiful. It's a historical novel that brings you to the time and place with such an easy touch.
“With the snow piling up outside, the warm dry cabin hidden in its fold of the mountain felt like a safe haven indeed, though it had not been such for the people who had lived there. Soldiers had found them and made the cabin trailhead to a path of exile, loss, and death. But for a while that night, it was a place that held within its walls no pain nor even a vague memory collection of pain.” ― Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain

Author's website -- "faith, commitment, the benign quirks of Irish myth, and the menace of Irish history all coalesce into an epic narrative of one young American’s travels to his family’s beginning and through a hopeful nation rushing to the future." Uplifting read about the power of people to heal others. But felt it got a little too pat in plot resolution at the end.

All That I Am: A Novel by Anna Funder, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005HG4J2M/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_g32Zpb0CKPV1B
<3 Reading List [All That I Am, Anna Funder. Pinner writes: "When Hitler comes to power in 1933, a tight group of friends & lovers become hunted outlaws overnight. United in their resistance to the madness & tyranny of Nazism, they flee the country. they take awe inspiring risks in order to continue their work in secret. But England is not the safe haven they think it is & a single act of betrayal will tear them apart."]
Award-winning author Anna Funder delivers an affecting and beautifully evocative debut novel about a group of young German exiles who risk their lives to awaken the world to the terrifying threat of Hitler and Nazi Germany. Based on real-life events and people, All That I Am brings to light the heroic, tragic, and true story of a small group of left-wing German social activists who mounted a fierce and cunning resistance from their perilous London exile.
All That I Am is a masterful and exhilarating exploration of bravery and betrayal, of the risks and sacrifices some people make for their beliefs, and of heroism hidden in the most unexpected places. Gripping, compassionate, and inspiring, this remarkable debut novel reveals an uncommon depth of humanity and wisdom. Anna Funder has given us a searing and intimate portrait of courage and its price, of desire and ambition, and of the devastating consequences when they are thwarted.
"None of us - teacher or taught - realized how an imagined life can sustain you as a possibility, a hope, and remain just that. Like parallel train tracks, it runs alongside, but will never meet the life you are living." All That I Am: A Novel, Anna Funder. Pinner writes: "Based on the true story of 4 young Germans (Ruth, Dora, Hans, and Ernst Toller) who fled their country in order to keep raising the alarm about what was happening in their homeland as Adolf Hitler came to power."
All That I Am: A Novel by Anna Funder. Definitely one of my favourite books of the year.

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Paula Hawkins. After reading the synopsis of this book I was very excited to read it, but that's where the excitement stopped. People are touting this novel as a psychological thriller and its far from it. The last 50 pages are somewhat exciting but nothing special. Mostly the drunk, stupid ramblings of an alcoholic that were tedious and boring.
Book Club Read: THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Paula Hawkins - A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people’s lives.
