Alternative Good Reads!

A  Fatal Grace by Louise Penney: Book #2 in the Armand Gamache mystery series (Lorna)

All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Dorr: story of German and French children during WWII. I loved it and our State of Grace Book Group read it. (Judy)

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins: first thriller by this British journalist.  I read it and was quite glued. Sort of a beach read. (Judy)

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J. D. Vance: #1 New York Times Bestseller named by the Times as one of “six books to help us understand Trump’s win” and soon to be a major motion picture directed by Ron Howard (No one has read this yet, but it looks good!)

Falling Upwards by Franciscan Father Richard Rohr: a must read for anyone with a child in his/her 40s or 50s. (Lorna)
