The Search by Nora Roberts
"One of the best! Suspense, love -- couldn't put it down!"

Three Chords for Beauty's Sake: The Life of Artie Shaw by Tom Nolan
"I have been a great fan of Artie shaw. The sound that he produced from his clarinet was sweet and mellow and beautiful. He was completely self-taught and his ascent to the top of the musical world int he 1930's and 1940's was all the more amazing. He had numerous number one hits. His professional success was in sharp contrast to his failed personal life due to his obsessive, compulsive, and mean-spirited behavior towards women."

The Cloister Walk by Kathleen Norris
"'. . .the purpose of individual growth is to share with others.' K. Norris' experiences in the monastic life are the basis for this book. The quotation from St. Benedict was one tenet difficult to follow and to explain to one's self. Living the life of self-discipline and of yielding to the needs and lifestyle of community required constant vigilance. I might need to read this a second or third time!"

Winston's War: Churchill 1940-1945 by Max Hastings
"This is a greatly detailed work about the Second World War and Winston Churchill's enormous contribution to the winning of the war. He alone truly got the English people safely through the war. He is one of the most important people of the 20th century."

Mature When I'm Dead by Dave Barry
"Another collection of really funny essays, in line with the rest of Dave Barry's wierd humor. The earlier essays are the funniest."

The Abortionist's Daughter by Elizabeth Hyde
"A 'whodunit' with interesting characters. I couldn't put it down!"
