A big story in a little book

Silver Thaw by Catherine Anderson might be a small paperback book but there is nothing small about the story within its covers. It gives a moving and terrifying view into the world of abuse as it follows a woman and her child as they escape from an abusive marriage and their struggle to survive without being found. You will be hooked from the first few chapters as little by little they both learn to trust and finally live and love again.

Warning! This book may make you hungry

Take it from me - you just can't read Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan without getting hungry...and laughing out loud. In this, his latest book, bestselling author and successful comedian Jim Gaffigan gives us an absolutely hysterical view of how important food is to him. Much of Gaffigan's success, in both writing and comedy, is due to his ability to make fun of food culture and his own obsession with eating. No wonder his shows sell out theatres around the world.

Accidents of Marriage by Randy Susan Meyers

Accidents of Marriage by Randy Susan Meyers was one of those books that I simply could not put down. I was drawn into the story from the beginning and found myself emotionally tied up in the struggles of each character. The story starts out describing a somewhat dysfunctional marriage, but soon turns into a very revealing and emotional tale of how a family survives a major crisis. The author skillfully tells the story from three different viewpoints through alternating chapters and blends them beautifully showing the depths of this family's love, hope, and despair.

Mammy from Gone with the Wind has her own story

In the early 1800s, Augustin and Solange arrive on the French colony of Saint-Domingue just as a revolution is breaking out.
