lifeafterlifeLife after life : a novel / Kate Atkinson.
It is an interesting conceit to write a book where the main character dies & gets reborn repeatedly. -Lauren

Resilience : hard-won wisdom for living a better life / Eric Greitens .
I like it so much that I bought a copy. Not an easy read. Lots to think about-but many good thoughts about setting priorities, etc. -Kathy

Murder as a fine art / David Morrell.
It was a good portrait of Victorian England and hte detective system at the time. Very detailed. -Carolyn

Interviews for 10 years after Speer was released from Spandau. -Madelyn

It is a wonderful autobiography about a warrior for the middle class. -Kathleen

The crime mystery with Alex Cooper as District Attorney is easy to read and interesting. -Ellen.

Bellman & Black : [a ghost story] / Diane Setterfield.
An unusual creative story. Kept my attention. -Sherri

Spinster : making a life of one’s own / Kate Bolick .
Interesting history of choosing to be single as well as some of the author’s own journey. -Sherri

Big little lies / Liane Moriarty.
It would depend on the person whether you liked this or not. I would recommend to someone to reads the “most current” hot book. I didn’t care for the beginning but the author tied up the loose ends well. -Catherine
